Award List:

Improving Hybrid Catfish Production Efficiency Through Early Out of Season Broodstock Conditioning

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Jeff Baxter
Award Amount: $80,000.00
Abstract:
Profit margins in commercial catfish production continue to shrink due to increased production costs, economic inflation, and increased foreign competition. In order to compete, catfish producers must become more efficient. Research has shown that progeny resulting from the hybridization of channel… More

Commercial-Scale Implementation of Blue-Catfish Germplasm for Hybrid Production

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Jeff Baxter, Vice President
Award Amount: $75,000.00
Abstract:
The channel catfish industry must rapidly improve efficiency. Production of hybrid catfish can increase efficiency. This proposal is intended to improve hybrid production. Four objectives: 1)optimize methods of collecting and handling blue catfish sperm; 2)adapt protocols to accommodate use of… More

Commercial-Scale Implementation of Blue-Catfish Germplasm for Hybrid Production

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Jeff Baxter, Vice President
Award Amount: $390,904.00
Abstract:
Our long-range goal is to cryopreserve blue catfish sperm reliably at a commercial scale in a cost-effective manner for high-throughput production of catfish hybrids. This effort could allow farmers to specialize in germplasm only, or hybrid fingerling production only, thereby diversifying the… More

Improving Hybrid Catfish Production Efficiency Through Triploid Induction

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Jeff Baxter, Vice President – 870-644-3596
Award Amount: $89,008.00
Abstract:
The profitability of commercial catfish production continues to decline due to increased feed and fuel costs, economic inflation, and increased imports of fish from countries with inexpensive labor and little regulation. In order to compete, catfish producers must become more efficient. Research has… More
