AbstractPresent supplies of rainbow smelt, both for live bait and human consumption, are provided, almost exclusively, by commercial harvest of wild populations. This project will develop alternative sources of rainbow smelt for the market and eventually reduce the harvest of wild populations. This project will shift the focus from commercial fishing of wild public resources to commercial fish culture techniques and aquaculture production.
