The first Hybrid Striped Bass Sampling & Harvest of 2017!
Yesterday, March 29th, 2017 the P.A.E.S.W.A.T.E.R. team had an exciting live event happen in the facility!
The hybrid striped bass in RAS System E1 were sampled for growth measurements. They now weigh 1.6 pounds on average. Typical harvest size is 1.5 – 2.0 lbs and we harvested 620 lbs. The team started the sampling process around 1:15 pm (EST).
Coming up, we will be harvesting 700 lbs of fish per week until we empty system E. This harvest has been a huge success as we are selling the Hybrid Striped Bass to local fish markets in the Orlando area.
We will be harvesting again next week; please tune in to our LIVE stream on paeswater.com to watch!
