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

Principal Investigator: Karolina Kwasek
Affiliation: Southern Illinois University Carbondale
Initiation Date: 2020
  • 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

New Approach in Replacing Live Food – Meeting Largemouth Bass Larvae Growth Requirements using Asian Carp Muscle as an Initial Protein Source

Principal Investigator: Karolina Kwasek
Affiliation: Southern Illinois University Carbondale
Initiation Date: 2018

The objectives of this project are:

  • To develop optimal in vitro methodology for Asian carp muscle hydrolysis using largemouth bass (LMB) endogenous digestive enzymes obtained from adult LMB.
  • To evaluate the effect of Asian carp muscle protein hydrolysates obtained using methodology in Objective 1 as a first feed for larval LMB.

On the feasibility of establishing a saline aquaculture industry in Illinois

Principal Investigator: Nandakishore Rajagopalan
Affiliation: University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
Initiation Date: 2012
  • Determine the existing and near-term (5-10 years) market for striped bass species in the Midwest region of the US for food consumption
  • Analyze the competitive advantages of rearing a euthyhaline species (Striped Bass) in Illinois/Midwest using regional saline water resources
  • Locate appropriate saline water resources in Illinois and examine water quality for compatibility with striped bass production

Assessing consumer preferences and demand for fish: a market analysis of the Midwest aquaculture industry

Principal Investigator: David Ortega
Affiliation: Purdue University
Initiation Date: 2010
  • Identify consumer preferences and demand for fish products
  • Estimate consumers’ willingness-to-pay for important food safety and quality informational attributes embedded in aquaculture products
  • Assess the competitiveness of aquaculture products with regards to food safety versus imported aquaculture products

Energy efficient and sustainable aquaculture water treatment Using microbial fuel cells and membrane-supported biofilms

Principal Investigator: Robert Nerenberg
Affiliation: University of Notre Dame
Initiation Date: 2010
  • Investigate the feasibility of a new treatment process, based on microbial fuel cells and membrane-supported biofilms reactors for removing nitrogen and sulfide in simulated recirculating aquaculture systems wastewater.
  • Determine the nitrogen and sulfide removal efficiencies, and levels of electric power production
  • Test different reactor configurations under variable loading conditions
