A feeding trial was conducted cooperatively by the American Soybean Association International Marketing (ASA-IM) program and the Heilongjiang Provincial Fishery Extension Center to test feed-based production of Songpu variety common carp in ponds in the short production season of northeastern China, latitude 46o north. The trial was conducted at the Heilongjiang Provincial Fishery Extension Center Demonstration Fish Farm near Harbin. The feeding trial evaluated Songpu carp performance on an ASA-IM soymeal-based feed and the resulting economic value to fish farmers in northeast China.
