The profitability of commercial catfish production continues to decline due to increased feed and fuel costs, economic inflation, and increased imports of fish from countries with inexpensive labor and little regulation. In order to compete, catfish producers must become more efficient. Research has shown that hybridization of channel catfish eg...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 8.7-2010
