Temperature Manipulation on Arctic Char Performance
UWSP-NADF is finishing up several years of research on Arctic
Char in partnership with a Wisconsin private company, Aquaterra, who is
sponsoring research to explore early life stage rearing temperatures, photoperiod manipulation and
rearing densities for arctic char at the facility.
project is proceeding nicely and the staff has been able to collect some great
data that will be beneficial to the industry.
Aquaterra has provided over 5,000 pounds of arctic char to various local
food shelves and tribal food donation programs from this project. Data is being
analyzed and publications regarding this work are forthcoming.
