Technical Abstract: The spawning season for our catfish egg research ended in mid-July and after completing our copper sulfate studies, we finished with a few other fungus control treatments on intact egg masses. We have a great system to do egg fungus studies and there are more compounds we plan to look at in the future. Since the end of our busy spawning season, we have been busy setting up other studies, analyzing data, and you-name-it. Aquaculture America 2009.
