Leatherside chub are a threatened species and little has been studied concerning how to optimally raise them in a controlled environment. Leatherside’s are susceptible to fungal growth. This makes it difficult to balance how much feed to give the fry for their optimal development. Giving them an excess of feed can cause fungal blooms, which can kill the fry. Our goal was to better understand how much feed fry will eat at different stages of development without creating an excess of feed leading to fungal growth.
