European Lobster: A Guide to Handling and Quality
The aim of this guide from the Irish Sea Fisheries Board (BIM) is to provide practical and contemporary guidelines on the handling and quality of lobster, at all stages, from capture to the first point of sale....
How to Farm Sole
This guide from the FAO Cultured Aquatic Species Information Programme provides information on farming sole (S. solea, S. senegalensis)....
Microcells, Mega-science and Bivalves – Biology, Legislation and Epidemiology of Important Diseases of Shellfish
Shellfish aquaculture in its current form has come a long way from the early days of relaying harvested animals from the sea and from practices extending back to Roman times, writes Matt Longshaw, Product Development Manager for Benchmark Animal Health....
Youthful Fish Can Regenerate Fin Tissue More Easily
The effects of aging on the body part regeneration capability of turquoise killifish have recently been studied for the first time, by researchers from the Leibniz Institute for Age Research - Fritz Lipmann Institute (FLI) in Jena, Germany....
Cambodian Case Study: Intergrated Pig and Fish Farming
With increasing an increasing demand for pork, pig farming in Cambodia is developing. Reporting for 5m Publishing, Stuart Lumb gives a run down of a farm near Phnom Phen in Cambodia which is farming both pigs and fish....
How to Farm Wakame (Undaria pinnatifida) Seaweed
This guide from the FAO Cultured Aquatic Species Information Programme provides information on farming Wakame (Undaria pinnatifida) seaweed. ...
Largemouth Bass get Suction Feeding Power from Swimming Muscles
A new study from Brown University has shown that largemouth bass get their slurping power for eating prey from the very same muscles that provide their swimming power....
Single Gene Controls Fish Brain Size, Intelligence
A single gene called Angiopoietin-1 (Ang-1) drives brain size and intelligence in fish according to a new study by researchers at University College London (UCL), Stockholm University and University of Helsinki....
Size-Selective Harvesting Effects Key Life-History Traits
Size-selective harvesting causes changes in key life-history traits, according to an experimental study with size-selectively harvested zebrafish that began in 2006 at the Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries in Berlin, Germany....
Evaluation of Date Fiber as Feed Ingredient for Nile Tilapia Fingerlings
