Research Project: Repeatability of Incidence and Time of Ovulation, Fecundity and Fertility in Channel Catfish Females Induced to Ovulate for Production

Location: Warmwater Aquaculture Research Unit

Project Number: 6066-31000-012-24-R
Project Type: Reimbursable Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: May 1, 2018
End Date: Apr 30, 2019

To develop management strategies to keep/cull groups of channel catfish females based on repeatable reproductive performance to improve the efficiency of hybrid catfish fry production.

To determine correlations between reproductive traits of individual catfish females induced to ovulate in two consecutive spawning seasons on reproductive performance in two years to develop strategies for on-farm selection of gravid females to improve the reproductive efficiency of catfish to produce hybrid catfish fry.
