  3. Out of season production of largemouth bass fingerlings on a commercial scale

    SBC: DUNN'S FISH FARMS, INC.            Topic: 8.7

    Our goal is to commercialize the largemouth bass fingerling production system/strategy that was proven effective through our Phase 1 project. This system employs "out-of-season" fall spawning followed by winter feed-training and the on-growing of advanced fingerlings indoors. In Phase 1 we developed broodstock acclimation facilities and protocols for out-of-season spawning in raceways. We showed t ...
