Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: A dose–response study was conducted in an outdoor biofloc system to begin quantifying the stocking rate production function for sunshine bass advanced fingerlings. Results showed the potential of the outdoor biofloc system to intensify production of advanced sunshine bass fingerlings, but feed consumption appeared to be impeded by high total suspended solids concentrations. More research can optimize solids management and stocking rates.
