Passive integrated transponder (PIT) tags can be used to overcome environmental variations caused by individual fish tanks during family selection of the channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus), which thus permits growth comparisons among different families under identical environmental conditions. Power analysis was used to analyse variations in various(More)
