    ..By characterizing the GHRHLP/PACAP gene and its distribution in channel catfish, we have developed essential tools to investigate the roles of these peptides in the regulation of catfish growth...

    ..There were no adverse effects among the medicated fish. Administration of florfenicol at a dosage of 10 mg/kg body weight for 10 d was efficacious and safe for the control of mortality from F. columnare infection in channel catfish...
