Event Title

An Unlikely Candidate: Exploring the Possible Aquaculture of Bowfin

Location

Edwards Hall Lobby

Document Type

Poster Presentation (1 hour)

Description

Can bowfin (aka dogfish) be cultured? As the price of their eggs, or roe, exceeds $80/kg in parts of the country, these long-lived, ancient fish will likely face over-exploitation soon. Two experiments are presented: one will hopefully be the first to successfully breed the majestic creatures in captivity, the second compares the growth of adults fed different diets that an aquaculturist would likely use.
