10 Myths about Marine Aquaculture
Not all aquaculture is created equal, but aquaculture in the United States operates within one of the most comprehensive regulatory environments in the world. Projects that are sited in US waters must meet a suite of federal, state, and local regulations...
Can Aquaculture Benefit the Extreme Poor? Case Study of Landless and Socially Marginalized Adivasi Communities in Bangladesh
The Adivasi Fisheries Project, aimed at diversifying livelihood options for resource-poor Adivasi communities in the North and Northwest of Bangladesh, was implemented during 2007–9. Aquaculture and related technologies were introduced to a total of...
Innovations in Capture Fisheries are Imperative for Nutrition Security in the Developing World
This article examines two strands of discourse on wild capture fisheries; one that focuses on resource sustainability and environmental impacts, another related to food and nutrition security and human well-being. Available data and research show that,...
Producing Better Catfish The Hybrid Way
In order to help the performance of US catfish farmers, scientists at the USDA Agricultural Research Service are examining breeding, nutrition, genetics, and management practices to produce better hybrid catfish. ...
Getting to Grips with Boarding and Inspection Schemes
Boarding and inspection schemes conducted by Regional Fisheries Management Organisations (RFMO’s) have a dual role to promote compliance and facilitate enforcement of deferring illegal fishing and protective fish stock. Some RFMO’s manage all the...
Transcriptomic Characterization of Cold Acclimation in Larval Zebrafish
Temperature is one of key environmental parameters that affect the whole life of fishes and an increasing number of studies have been directed towards understanding the mechanisms of cold acclimation in fish....
Growth Reaction Norms of Salmon in Response to Differing Social and Physical Environments
This report by Monica Favnebøe Solberg et al, Institute of Marine Research, Norway, looked at the growth reaction norms of domesticated, wild and hybrid Atlantic salmon families in response to differing social and physical environments. ...
Evaluating Social and Ecological Vulnerability of Coral Reef Fisheries to Climate Change
There is an increasing need to evaluate the links between the social and ecological dimensions of human vulnerability to climate change. Joshua E. Cinner et al, James Cook University, Australia, use an empirical case study of 12 coastal communities and...
Labelling Fish for EU Export – What is in a Name?
Labelling for export can be a complicated process - not only do you have to ensure that you adhere to the minefield of legislation, but you also want to make sure that the customer is impressed - after all the label is what every customer will see before...
Finding a Unique RT-qPCR Assay for Diagnostic Quality Control Assessment of Pathogen Detection in Salmonids
The detection of pathogens at early stages of infection is a key point for disease control in aquaculture. This work by Dagoberto Sepúlveda et al, University Católica de Valparaíso, Chile, aims to design a unique RT-qPCR assay for pathogen detection...
Spatially Explicit Seston Depletion Index to Optimize Shellfish Culture
Cultivated bivalves rely on natural seston for growth and metabolic processes. Because seston is a limited resource, there is a need to better understand its distribution and fluxes within culture embayments, so farms can be positioned optimally within...
The Potential of Microalgae Meals in Compound Feeds for Aquaculture
Intensive production of mainly carnivorous fish has resulted in fish feeds containing high levels of fishmeal and fish oil, with Europe requiring around 1.9 million tonnes a year, writes Nathan Atkinson, MSc Sustainable Aquaculture Systems student, Fish...
Lumpfish: The Latest Weapon in the Battle Against Sea Lice?
The ongoing battle to combat sea lice remains one of the major issues facing salmon farmers of today. The parasite poses a significant threat to aquaculture operations worldwide. Whilst a number of preventative methods and post-infestation treatments,...
An Overview of Heating and Cooling Process Water in Land-based Aquaculture
Water temperature control to optimize fish growth is one the deciding factors favoring land - based aquaculture. Maintaining optimal temperature for growth removes the seasonal variations often found in fish feeding and growth rates as temperatures change,...
The Use of Algae in Fish Feeds as Alternatives to Fishmeal
Fishmeal is very extensively used in feeds for fish as well as other animals. A recent global survey estimated aquaculture consumption of fishmeal at 3724 thousand tonnes in 2006 (Tacon and Metian 2008). Now it is becoming increasingly evident that such...
