Intensive rotifer culture systems can significantly reduce the space and labor requirements for the production of rotifers in marine finfish hatcheries.
A model designed at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington examines the profitability of summer flounder aquaculture using recirculating systems.
Grow-out studies of summer flounder at the University of North Carolina Wilmington evaluated microbead media as a biofilter in recirculating systems.
Progress in developing aquaculture methods for black sea bass is related to the concurrent study of culture requirements for the growout or “ongrowing” of captive wild stock.
