2. When was your last sample?

3. What was your sampling technique, sample size?

4. What did you learn from that sample? (growth rate, FCR, health/condition of fish, etc.)

5. Based on your sampling information, is your feeding program proving cost-effective?

6. As a result of your last sample, did you make any adjustments in your management? What and why?

7. Have your fish reproduced? If so, what adjustments have you made to your management and data collection as a result?

8. How are you managing your plankton bloom?

9. What stands out right now as the most burning question you have regarding your pond, and what are you doing to answer that question?
