Largemouth Bass Study Harvested

Interest in largemouth bass as an aquaculture species is increasing, especially as a live food fish within ethnic Asian markets throughout the United States. Therefore, Kentucky State University's Aquaculture Research Center has been researching largemouth bass for several years.

KSU's ARC Faculty, staff and students harvested a twelve pond largemouth bass diet study this week. Fish were counted, weighed, and measured to analyze how each of the four experimental diets performed. Blood was also drawn from a small sample of fish from each pond. The blood was then analyzed to look at liver health. The data collected is currently being used to compare how each diet effected growth, health, and liver histology of largemouth bass.

Planning For a Profitable Aquaculture Business

Free Webinar for Aquaculture Business Owners and Managers hosted by the NAA

This 1-hour webinar will discuss key components of profitability for an aquaculture business and planning steps to minimize risks of financial losses. The focus will be on common pitfalls that have led to failure of new aquaculture businesses, and the types of planning steps that can help to avoid such problems.

This webinar will present a step-by-step outline of the planning process necessary to develop and maintain a profitable business, with particular emphasis on those aspects that are most important to aquaculture businesses. Most aquaculture businesses require a great deal of capital for both the initial investment and for annual operations. Inadequate financing and capital management are common sources of financial stress that can lead to business failure.

This webinar will point to sources of information and assistance that can be accessed for additional follow-up. It will also answer basic questions about financial management and analysis necessary to monitor the financial health of the business. Join us and engage in the discussion of what it takes for an aquaculture business to be profitable.

Presenter: Dr. Engle is an Aquaculture Economist with more than 30 years experience in the analysis of economics and marketing issues related to aquaculture businesses. She has worked in 19 different countries, has published over 100 scientific articles, serves on the editorial board of the Journal of the World Aquaculture Society and the Journal of Applied Aquaculture and is the Editor-in-Chief of "Aquaculture Economics and Management". She currently serves as Chair and Director of Aquaculture/Fisheries at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff.
