Status of Commercial Aquaculture in Arkansas in 1975

A telephone and personal survey of all known Arkansas fish producers was made during the first quarter of1976 to determine the extent of change in aquaculture production during the past three years. The survey indicated that although intensive pond production has been reduced by about 4,050 hectares, the economic value since 1972, because of higher prices received for the products, has increased by 16.8% to $24,191,700. Growth in the industry has slowed in recent years due to narrowing profit margins and changes in prices and allotments for other agricultural crops.
