Pond feeding trials conducted cooperatively by the American Soybean Association International Marketing (ASA-IM) program, the Heilongjiang Provincial Fishery Extension Center and the Shenyang Municipal Fishery Research Institute demonstrated the economic value of a soy-based, high protein diet for black carp. Feeding trials were conducted in 2006 in Heilongjiang and Liaoning Provinces to evaluate second and third year growth performance of black carp fed a soy-based, 36% crude protein feed and the resulting economic value to fish farmers in the northeastern region of China.
