Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Aug 01, 2009
End Date: Jul 31, 2012
This research will identify steroid profiles for fish used in spawning efforts. The goal is to identify patterns and concentrations of steroids in these fish to provide better management tools to producers.
Sera samples from fish will be collected and the steroid profiles compared. Reproductive success will be measured and correlated to steroid profiles.
