Abstract The highly successful Report to the Fish Farmers published in 1970 and the Second Report to the Fish Farmers published in 1973 have pointed out the need for a third edition of the Report. The reader of this Third Report to the Fish Farmers should be provided with the essentials of successful warmwater fish farming. The emphasis in this report is clearly on channel catfish, ranging from maintenance of brood stock to the culture of fingerlings and the production of market-sized fish. However, production techniques are described for numerous other fishes of commercial importance, as well as for crayfish, prawns, bullfrogs, and alligators. Other topics of potential interest to practicing aquaculturists include polyculture; nutrition and feeding; harvesting, holding, and transporting of fish; parasites and diseases; and multiple use of land and water.
