Largemouth Bass Muscle Hydrolysate as Practical Replacement of Live Food for Largemouth Bass Larvae

Major Goals and Objectives

  • Develop an optimal methodology for largemouth bass (LMB) muscle hydrolysis using digestive enzymes representing LMB digestive tract
  • Evaluate the effect of LMB muscle protein hydrolysate used as first feed on the growth and survival of LMB larvae
  • Provide feed/additive manufacturing industry with knowledge and tools required for production of high-quality, cost effective, and well-digested dietary muscle hydrolysate as a source of protein in larval fish feeds
