Intensifying Pond Production of Fish

  • Millcreek Township Hall 10420 Watkins Road Marysville, OH, 43040 United States (map)

The Ohio Aquaculture Association (OAA), the North Central Regional Aquaculture Center (NCRAC), and OSU’s Aquaculture Boot Camp (ABC) program are pleased to announce their joint summer 2018 workshop “Intensifying Pond Production of Fish”.  The goal of this workshop is to provide information and strategies that might allow pond culturists to intensify their operation and grow more pounds of fish per acre of water.  New ponds are increasingly more expensive to build, so it makes sense to maximize production in existing ponds.
Topics to be covered during the workshop are 1) OSU’s ongoing NCRAC research project on intensifying pond production via intensive aeration and / or split pond production, 2) hands-on water quality testing (courtesy of YSI Inc.) and interpretation of results, and 3) in-pond demonstration of various aeration techniques pond culturist can use, including the pros and cons of each.
The workshop will be held July 14th, 2018 at Millcreek Perch Farm, LLC and the Millcreek Township Hall.  Lunch will be provided.  Cost is $50 for OAA members and $75 for non-members.   The workshop will begin at 9:00 AM at the Township Hall, 10420 Watkins Rd., Marysville, OH  43040 and wrap-up at 4:00 PM
