Predator damage control in cultured fish

Description

Birds, fish and mammals are known predators of cultured fish. Bird predation is the major source of fish loss at aquaculture facilities. Predatory fish can also be a major concern to fish stocks, followed by mammal predation to a much lesser extent. The diversity of Alberta’s aquaculture practices as well as the variety of predators means producers need to understand damage prevention and control techniques. These control measures may be used singly or in combination to alleviate predation problems.
