Evaluation of the Newly-developed, Least-cost Experimental Diet for Bluegill at Commercial Densities in PondsIowa State Research Farm Progress Reports
Extension NumberRFR A1133
AbstractA substantial need exists to reduce costs and develop more nutritionally adequate diets for established as well as emerging aquaculture species in the North Central Region (NCR). The study evaluated a diet for juvenile northern bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus) that is significantly less costly than currently available diets for sunfish, while yielding a growth rate that is at least equal to an industry standard sunfish diet. Such a diet formulation is now available to the NCR as the result of a recently funded North Central Regional Aquaculture Center (NCRAC) project.
