Yes, we are looking for cooperation. We have a great deal of research capacity for fish rearing and some for testing off-flavor, in addition to expertise in fish health, pond management, genetics, fish nutrition, etc...

Hi Petr, as host of this challenge I am looking for suggestions, our intention is to collaborate with winners for demonstration/proof of concept, and transferring technology to industry.

Dear Caird,
We would like to ask for any information you might be able to share relating to current practices that farmers use to manage their ponds through the whole crop cycle. We have found some information on line but its not clear if these practices are customary throughout the whole sector. Ideally we are looking for a farm manager's guidebook/manual that sets out the timing and activities of each phase in the cycle (pond preparation, stocking, all aspects of crop management including WQ management, feed, measuring growth and FCR, and of course troubleshooting). Any resources along these lines would be most helpful
Many thanks in advance,
Simon

Hi Simon,
Here are some resources that I hope you find useful, basically aquaculture extension publications and videos from Mississippi State, Auburn and LSU. I also point to the Southern Regional Research Center fact sheets.

Hey solution finders,

Are the ponds oxygenated in any form, build up water fountains, add oxygen plants if there are non?
Please check up Chrisal probiotic products. You will be wowed!

Pictures would be good to see what the ponds look like?

Oscar Rodgers
Video seen thank you!

Oscar Rodgers
The probiotics will assist tremendously with improving the condition of the water biofilms, and improve the health of the fish.

The oxygen plants can be placed or grown in specific areas of the ponds or float on the surface in floating crates.

Artificial water fountains may be used to improve oxygen levels as well?

Oscar Rodgers
By use of the floating crates with water plants this would also block out the sun to some extent.

Oscar Rodgers
Hi May I ask what the phosphate levels are and are they correct? Maybe building up the banks of the ponds with sand bags or canvasing may prevent run off into the ponds which could also assist?
