Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: SNARC has been involved with research on copper sulfate for several proposed label claims; this presentation will be about one of the claims, fungus on catfish eggs. A major obstacle in fish hatcheries is the inevitable fungal growth on eggs. Copper sulfate is commonly used for fungus control in channel catfish hatcheries that use troughs, and this is based on our completed Effectiveness and Target Animal Safety technical sections required by FDA/CVM. But, effectiveness on fish eggs hatched using different systems has also been investigated. This presentation will discuss research using other fish species and future plans for research to provide information on extra-label use once we get approval of copper sulfate on channel catfish eggs.
