Transportation Of Channel Catfish Fry In Plastic Bags

Channel catfish fry, ranging in age from one day old to about two weeks old, are routinely transported in polyethylene plastic bags with an oxygen atmosphere between fish hatcheries in Arkansas. Approximately 10,000 fry are transported per 18" X 32" bag in 1.5 gallons of well-oxygenated spring water of moderate hardness. These fish are transported by both airplanes and station wagons.
