PINE BLUFF, Ark. -- The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff will host the biennial
Aquaculture/Fisheries Field Day on Oct. 2.
The event will feature tractor tours, walking tours and educational posters that provide
summaries of the most recent scientific results from the research and Extension efforts
at UAPB’s Aquaculture/Fisheries Center of Excellence.
“The Field Day is an ideal time for producers to find out what we have learned from
our most recent research and Extension projects, and to have a chance to talk informally
with researchers, Extension personnel and other farmers,” said Dr. Carole Engle, director
of the Center.
Registration, a trap shoot, poster sessions and tours will all begin at 8:30 a.m.
at the UAPB Aquaculture Research Station off Oliver Road. Research and Extension demonstrations
run until 11:30 a.m.
The Aquaculture/Fisheries Field Day tractor tour will feature presentations on preventing
fish losses from hydrogen sulfide, developing crappie hybrids and triploids, whether
golden shiners can be raised in the new split-pond production systems and the fundamentals
of split-pond engineering.
The walking tour will focus on evidence collected to date of fish losses due to diving
ducks, successful trials growing largemouth bass indoors, treating diseases in split
ponds and intensive systems, veggie diets for bass and what consumers will pay for
catfish and baitfish.
Field day activities will be followed by a Catfish Farmers of Arkansas board meeting
at 1 p.m. and an Arkansas Catfish Promotion board meeting at 2 p.m.
For more information about the Field Day, contact Casandra Byrd at 870-575-8123.
