Florida Pompano Culture in Recirculating Systems Workshop - June 3, 2013

This workshop covered the culture of Florida Pompano including brood-stock maintenance and conditioning, spawning techniques, larviculture protocols, use of recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) for grow-out, and economic outlook for RAS culture of pompano. The day also included an in-depth tour of Harbor Branch’s RAS hatchery and grow-out facilities. The demonstration commercial scale RAS that was designed to reuse the water in a 20,200 gallon culture tank was highlighted.

This work was funded by a grant from the Aquaculture Review Council and Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
