Propagation of Buffalo Fishes

Intense interest in commercial fish farming in Arkansas, due to crop acreage controls and other factors, stimulated experiments in buffalo fish propagation at the Joe Hogan State Fish Hatchery, Lonoke, Arkansas. A pond method of propagation was developed necessitating the use of overwintering or brood ponds, spawning ponds, nursery ponds and growing ponds. The culture procedures are set forth in a step by step “cook book” fashion.
