Building an Integrated Aquaculture Pond in the Philippines
This guide explains how integrated aquaculture farming (where a farmer can rear fish, chicken and plant vegetables) on a plot of 10 by 10 feet can generate food and an income for a family in the Philippines. ...
Genetic Improvements to Fish Stocks through Selective Breeding
A major European-wide research project is making strong inroads into developing new breeding programmes to improve the stock of six important aquaculture species, writes Chris Harris....
Prevention of White Feces Syndrome, White Gut Disease and White Muscle Disease in Shrimp
Shrimp culture tends to now be developed intensively with upgraded technology for higher and successful production.In many occasions shrimp culture are affected by various diseases and experienced in loss of crop or reduced the production level by various...
Value Chain Analysis of the Aaquaculture Feed Sector in Egypt
This study was carried out to evaluate the value chain performance of the aquaculture feed sector in Egypt, in terms of value addition, employment and profitability, write Abdel-Fattah M. El-Sayeda, Malcolm W. Dicksonb and Gamal O. El-Naggarb, Alexandria...
The Problem of Post-Harvest Losses
Fishing incurs costs from many different aspects – the vessel itself, fuel, fishing equipment, crew, licences, and so forth. Making sure every bit of a catch counts as income is essential – especially where fishers are running on tight margins. ...
Successful Production in Semi-biofloc in Indonesia
An Aquaculture Experience Farm in Java operates a hybrid system, based on a careful balance between autotrophic and heterotrophic organisms which gave average outputs of 20 tonnes/ha in early 2013, Agus Saiful Huda, Junaedi Ispinanto, Fauzan Bahri and...
Organic Acids Enhance Tiger Shrimp Resistance to Vibrio Harveyi
The threat of disease in the aquaculture industry, coupled with greater restrictions or ban on antibiotic use, has increased interest in evaluating antibiotic alternatives, write Wing-Keong Ng et al, Universiti Sains Malaysia....
Freshwater Fish Supercharge their Ability to See Infrared Light?
Salmon migrating from the open ocean to inland waters do more than swim upstream. To navigate the murkier freshwater streams and reach a spot to spawn, the fish have evolved a means to enhance their ability to see infrared light. Humans lack this evolutionary...
Tilapia: A Nutritious, Environmentally Friendly Fish
Often dubbed the ‘aquatic chicken’, farmed tilapia is now a staple in many parts of the world. A healthy source of protein, micronutrients and essential fatty acids, tilapia is now the fourth most consumed fish in the US and it is farmed extensively...
Marine Animals Use New Form of Secret Light Communication
Researchers from the Queensland Brain Institute at The University of Queensland have uncovered a new form of secret light communication used by marine animals....
3-D Printed Parts from Some Commercial Devices Toxic to Zebrafish Embryos
The recent boom in 3-D printing has driven innovations in fields as disparate as haute couture and medical implants....
Utilisation of Feed Resources in Norwegian Atlantic Salmon Production
This article shows the retention efficiency of nutrients from feed resources to final product in Norwegian salmon production, including limiting resources such as the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA and phosphorous. It is highly relevant to compare the...
Nutrient Profiles of Rotifers and Rotifer Diets in Marine Fish Hatcheries
Cultured marine fish larvae are most often fed rotifers (Brachionus sp.) the first few weeks after first-feeding. However the nutritional value of rotifers is generally inferior to the natural diet of marine fish larvae which is comprised of zooplankton,...
Fish Skin Provides Invisibility in Open Ocean
Scientists have solved a longstanding mystery about how some fish seem to disappear from predators in the open waters of the ocean, a discovery that could help materials scientists and military technologists create more effective methods of ocean camouflage....
Exopolymers in Hatcheries: An Overlooked Factor in Hatchery Hygiene and Feed Quality
Extracellular Polymeric Substances (EPS),1 or exopolymers, play vital roles in the productivity of commercial hatcheries, yet have received little attention in aquaculture outside of their role in the biofilters of recirculating systems, write A. Joycea...
