Fresh Water Fish
WHYCOCOMAGH, N.S. – The Canadian government and the Government of Nova Scotia are funding Nova Scotia’s We’koqma’q First Nation in obtaining its Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification for its fish farm.
The walleye (Sander vitreus) is a favorite food fish and sport fish of millions of Canadians and Americans residing in the Great Lakes region and northern Great Plains. The flesh – white, firm, and mild in flavor – is very pleasing to most palates. 
The pristine waters of Lake Huron have long drawn attention from anglers in search of great trout and char fishing. It is no surprise that those waters are also excellent for farming rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss).
AUBURN, Ala. - For months now, an Auburn University research team has been keeping close tabs on roughly 250 tagged paddlefish and smallmouth buffalo in the Alabama River in an effort to learn more about how lock-and-dam systems on a waterway impact fish movement upstream and down.

Good news to tilapia aficionados: tilapia has always been good for you.

 A study showed tilapia’s Omega-6 to Omega-3 (n6:n3) ratios is relatively low compared to normal US diets. This disproves the “worse than bacon” allegation made in 2008 that was based on a study conducted by a research team that exaggerated its interpretation of how tilapia’s n6:n3 ratios were bad for the health.

Mike Meeker has been farming rainbow trout off of Manitoulin Island in Canada's Lake Huron since 1984. A self-described "pioneer" in the business, his first net pen was hammered together with logs he cut in the bush and floated on oil drums. He's come a long way since then. As the managing director and part owner of Blue Goose Foods, he oversees two pen sites that each produce a million pounds of trout a year.
The final report published by the Michigan state "Quality of Life" departments concludes an 18-month process, in which the Departments of Agriculture and Rural Development, Environmental Quality, and Natural Resources, considered two applications for net pen trout farming in Lakes Michigan and Huron.
