Production systems, including catfish, hybrid striped bass, crayfish, freshwater prawns, and others. Currently, looking at utilization of low salinity water in west Alabama for hybrid striped bass and other marine species, monosex culture of the freshwater prawn, and use of probiotics for pond culture of channel catfish.
