Potential for Understanding Anti-bacterial Resistance
Biologists could gain a deeper understanding about how species have evolved – and even find ways to address antibiotic resistance – using tools that were developed recently at Stockholm's KTH Royal Institute of Technology....
Substitution of Dietary Fish Oil with Plant Oils is Associated with Shortened Mid Intestinal Folds in Atlantic Salmon
Torfinn Moldal et al, Norwegian Veterinary Institute, investigated the intestinal health in Atlantic salmon fed with different vegetable oils as partial substitutes of fish oil in the diet....
Tilapia Could Enhance Water Conditions, Help Control EMS in Shrimp Ponds
Anecdotal reports have indicated polyculture and biofloc systems can reduce outbreaks of diseases at shrimp farms. A laboratory study at the University of Arizona examined the effects of tilapia in controlling acute hepatopancreatic necrosis (AHPN) infection...
Effect of Pawpaw Seeds Powder in Nile Tilapia Diet
The objective of the present study was to determine the effects of dietary inclusion of different levels of pawpaw seeds powder (PSP) at different periods on the growth performance, survival rate, feed utilization and carcass composition of fry and fingerlings...
Characterization of Intestinal Bacteria in Wild and Domesticated Adult Black Tiger Shrimp
The black tiger shrimp is a marine crustacean of economic importance in the world market. To ensure sustainability of the shrimp industry, production capacity and disease outbreak prevention must be improved. This work by Wanilada Rungrassame et al,...
Effect of Sangrovit WS on Growth, Survival and Prevention of Vibrio harveyi in Pacific White Shrimp
This study by Tirawat Rairat, Niti Chuchirdl and Chalor Limsuwanl, Kasetsart University, Thailand, revealed the benefit of Sangrovit WS, a natural plant feed additive, in anti-inflamatory and antimicrobial activities in shrimp and its effectiveness in...
Harmful Effects on Toxin Dinoflagellates in Shrimp Culture Ponds
Phytoplankton are the key food item in both aquaculture and mariculture. Both systems are utilizing phytoplankton as food for the animals being farmed. In aquaculture, phytoplankton must be obtained and developed artificially through various adapted procedures,...
Dietary Potassium Diformate (KDF) Improves Performance of Milkfish from Mariculture in the Philippines
The milkfish is the most important cultured fish species in the Philippines. In 2011, almost 373,000 t milkfish were produced there (FAO, 2013), around 42% of its entire world production, write Christian Lückstädt, Kai-Jens Kühlmann and Karsten Schroeder,...
Atlantic Cod Actively Avoid CO2 and Predator Odour, Even After Long-term CO2 Exposure
The rising atmospheric CO2 level is continuously driving the dissolution of more CO2 into the oceans, and some emission scenarios project that the surface waters may reach 1000 ?atm by the end of the century, write Fredrik Jutfelt and Maria Hedgärde,...
Suspended Solids Effects In Shrimp Biofloc Systems
The use of biofloc systems for shrimp culture requires monitoring of water quality parameters, particularly suspended solids levels, writes Carlos Gaona et al, Universidade Federal do Rio Grande. Taken from the Global Aquaculture Advocate, a Global Aquaculture...
Evaluation of Growth Performance, Feed Utilization Efficiency and Survival Rate of Juvenile Nile Tilapia, Reared at Different Water Temperature
Kassaye Balkew Workagegn, Hawassa University, Ethiopia, conducted this study to investigate the growth performance, feed utilization efficiency and survival rate of juvenile Oreochromis niloticus reared in aquaria at different water temperature....
Early Exposure of Bay Scallops to High CO2 Causes a Decrease in Larval Shell Growth
Ocean acidification has a variable impact on the growth and survival of marine invertebrates. Larval stages are thought to be particularly vulnerable to environmental stressors, and negative impacts of ocean acidification have been seen on fertilization...
Effect of Different Sources and Levels of Some Dietary Biological Additives on:III- Body Composition of Nile Tilapia Fish
In part three of three, A.M. Abdelhamid, Mansoura University, Egypt, aims to investigate the effect of dietary graded levels of Aqua Superzyme, Garlen Allicin, and Diamond V (Original XPC) on the chemical composition and histology of all-males mono-sex...
Influence of Food Supply on the Response of Olympia Oyster Larvae to Ocean Acidification
Increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide drive accompanying changes in the marine carbonate system as carbon dioxide enters seawater and alters ocean pH. As such changes do not occur in isolation, and other environmental factors have the potential to modulate...
Effect of Different Sources and Levels of Some Dietary Biological Additives on: II- Feed Utilization by Nile Tilapia Fish
In part two of three, A.M. Abdelhamid, Mansoura University, Egypt, aims to investigate the effect of dietary graded levels of Aqua Superzyme, Garlen Allicin, and Diamond V (Original XPC) on feed utilization by Nile tilapia fish for 16 weeks. ...
