A comparative study on the early development of grass carp, black carp, silver carp
, and big head of the Yangtze River, p.
On the other hand, silver carp
and bigheads are very soft fish, so you can get by with a 25-pound draw weight,--a real advantage if you have to stay at full draw when the silvers are hopping.
Qiu, "Investigation on structural changes of myofibrillar proteins from silver carp
(hypophthalmichthys molitrix) during frozen storage," Food Science and Technology Research, vol.
At relatively low densities, the silver carp
were able to graze for particles of food directly, resulting in a decline in phosphorus and chlorophylla levels within the Lake Taihu enclosures .
Raw silver carp
fillets were showed considerable amounts of palmitic (21.37 [+ or -] 1.12%), stearic (10.49 [+ or -] 0.66%), palmitoleic (2.57 [+ or -] 0.09%), oleic (21.37 [+ or -] 1.12%), linoleic (3.80 [+ or -] 0.29%), linolenic (0.96 [+ or -] 0.83%), arachidonic (9.83 [+ or -] 0.42%), eicosapentaenoic (6.45 [+ or -] 0.65%) and docosahexaenoic (8.73 [+ or -] 1.63%) acids (Table 2).
the molitrix skin harbours extremely low methionine content; the authors also considered collagen from silver carp
skin as type I.

Fish were provided by a regional fry producer, with an average weight and standard deviation of 22.8 [+ or -] 4.3 g for grass carp, 32.7 [+ or -] 9.0 g for common carp, 33.6 [+ or -] 10.3 g for bighead carp and 3.5 [+ or -] 0.9 g for silver carp
. Fish were stocked in the ponds in November 2004 and the growth experiment lasted 28 weeks (196 days).
Although the Illinois River gets much of the press for jumping silver carp
, the shallower Wabash may be an even better bowfishing destination.
The fungal infection observed in silver carp
probably occurred through the use of unhygienic and contaminated feed given to fish in pond.
Considering the management practices at hatcheries, the present study is designed to report the status of whole body cortisol and protein contents in eggs (unfertilized and fertilized), embryos and larvae of silver carp
Hypophthalmichthys molitrix, artificially bred at local fish hatchery.
