Aquaculture is the process of growing useful crops in water. Some crops grown in water are algae, other water plants, plants and fish for home aquaria, and seafoods of many types including fish, shrimp, and mollusks. It is not a simple process and requires careful attention to many factors such as temperature, ammonia, diseases, parasites, and predators. These web pages will be devoted to teaching the sciences needed for successful aquaculture. We will also make suggestions for pilot projects for the serious fish farmer or students and amateurs conducting science projects.
Fish farming is not yet an industry in Indiana. There is serious research underway. Purdue University has a study underway in Dubois County at the Southern Indiana Forage Farm in the many farm ponds of that station. They are looking into the possibility that during winter, trout or other cold water species could be grown to market size and then during summer warm water species could be grown to market size in the same pond by alternating the species grown in the pond.
In Kentucky, shrimp have been grown to market size in a few months of summer.
A recent issue of Indiana Business said that at huge multimillion dollar fish farm is planned by a large southern company. It would be built East of Seymour, Indiana.
We will add pages on the species of fish which could be grown. Not much is availabe on the web on fish farming. Most sites are merely announcing research projects.
I have been wondering if grass carp could be grown by feeding them chopped green forage. This fish eats plants. They will actually jump up out of the water to grab tree leaves when food is scarce.
