Best management practices for hybrid striped bass culture


Goals and Objectives:

  • Perform literature search on extensively-reared hybrid striped bass (HSB) and review past hatchery records to determine relationships between rearing techniques, survival, and water quality.
  • Identify best management practices for movement of hybrid striped bass fry to Iowa’s hatcheries.
  • Identify best management practices for culturing hybrid striped in plastic-lined and earthen ponds in Iowa.
  • Compile, analyze, and publish in federal aid documents and appropriate journals the best management practices for rearing hybrid striped bass in earthen and plastic-lined ponds
