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...
Reared Fish, Farmed Escapees and Wild Fish Stocks — A Triangle of Pathogen Transmission of Concern to Mediterranean Aquaculture Management
Although aquaculture in the Mediterranean is a relatively young industry, finfish diseases have been reported to cause considerable problems and mortalities among the farmed stocks. In response, P. Arechavala-Lopez et al, University of Alicante, Spain,...
Biochemical and Molecular Heterogeneity Among Isolates of Yersinia Ruckeri from Rainbow Trout
Enteric Redmouth Disease (ERM), caused by Yersinia ruckeri, is one of the most important infectious diseases in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) aquaculture in Europe. More recently, non-motile vaccine resistant isolates appear to have evolved and...
Effects of Sangrovit on the Performances of Tra Catfish Cultured in Earthen Ponds
Tra catfish (Pangasius hypophthalmus) is a dominant cultured species in Vietnam in terms of production. Its aquaculture production in 2011 was approximate 1.2 million metric tons. The main culture system for tra catfish is intensive model in earthen ponds...
Eco-Label Conveys Reliable Information on Fish Stock Health to Seafood Consumers
Concerns over fishing impacts on marine populations and ecosystems have intensified the need to improve ocean management. One increasingly popular market-based instrument for ecological stewardship is the use of certification and eco-labeling programs...
Diagnostic Method for Assessing the Shellfish Culture Potential of a Coastal System
In the context of resource management and spatial planning, tools are needed to help decision makers assess the potential of coastal areas for various activities. Among these, shellfish culture presents the particularity of exploiting natural resources...
Construction and Installation of Hexagonal Wooden Cages for Aquaculture
This FAO document is a practical guide that includes a list and the technical details of materials to construct a hexagonal wooden cage for fish farming, and its mooring system, for use in artisanal aquaculture. Instructions for assembling the various...
Underwater Vehicle Navigation Systems for Net Inspection in Salmon Aquaculture
With a need to guarantee complete coverage of fish cages during an inspection to prevent escapees through damaged net, Per Rundtop et al, SINTEF, have studied underwater vehicle navigation systems for net inspection in salmon aquaculture....
A Review on Population Characteristics of Gilthead Seabream
S. aurata is a marine fish living along the Atlantic coasts of Europe and the Mediterranean Sea. It is an important food species, so that its production reached 128,943 t in the European aquaculture in 2008. However, little is known on its biology, in...
