I'm sorry for the delay in answering your questions. I've been trying to find someone in Arkansas to answer your question. I would suggest calling the Fisheries Department at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. Your local county Extension agent should be able to help you as well. I don't think there is anyone culturing perch in Arkansas, but I'm not sure. Your best bet would be to contact Dr. Anita Kelly – Extension Aquaculture Specialist. She might be able to help you a little more. See below for her contact info.
