Abstract

Regardless of the culture system that is used, channel catfish must be captured and transported several times before they are slaughtered for processing. Commonly, fish are moved (as eggs) from brood ponds to the hatchery, again as fry from the hatchery to a nursery facility, as fingerlings to a growout facility after a period of growth in the nursery facility, and then finally to the processing plant after growout to foodfish size. In some production schemes, fish may be handled even more often before final harvest. Also, some fish are “live-hauled” to special markets such as restaurants, fee-fishing lakes, or sport-fishing ponds.
