Develop Systems & Diet Strategies to Reduce Yellow Perch Larval Mortality
The USDA-North Central Region
Aquaculture Council (NCRAC) provided funding to investigate and develop systems
and diet strategies to reduce yellow perch larval mortality burst. Working
collaboratively with the Ohio State University and Iowa State University, the
UWSP-NADF is rearing yellow perch intensively and
investigating different rearing attributes such as tank color, spray bar
effects and turbidity levels. The UWSP-NADF
has completed year 3 and has created a video PowerPoint through NCRAC. This study will provide useful
information concerning commercial intensive rearing of yellow perch for
Wisconsin and the Midwest.
