Catching, Handling and Transport: The Implications for Fish Welfare
For many farming practices, the capture, handling and transport of fish is an essential requirement; however with each of these activities found to be a stressful process, what are the implications for fish welfare? Hannah Chilvers, writing for TheFishSite.com,...
US Seafood Naming Rules: Do They Provide Real Guidance for the Seafood Industry?
Reports of product mislabeling are a constant story in the global seafood industry, with many advocating for more strict enforcement of naming requirements. The calls for more enforcement of seafood labeling rules begs the question of whether those rules...
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...
Whisky Co-products a Sustainable Protein Source for Aquaculture Feeds
With a growing demand for alternative proteins to satisfy the nutritional requirements of fish, Julio Traub et al, Heriot-Watt University, Scotland, looked at the use of proteins from Malt (MW) and Grain Whisky (GW) co-products and presented their findings...
High Level of Cross Reactivity Between Different Strains of Salmonid Alphavirus Demonstrated in Study
Authors Dr David Graham and Dr Marian McLoughlin have commented on a recent study conducted by the Fish Diseases Unit (FDU) of the Agri-food and Biosciences Institute in Belfast and MSD Animal Health in Bergen, which has investigated relationships between...
What Causes Melanin Pigmentation in Salmon Fillets?
A PhD project carried out at the Norwegian School of Veterinary Science has examined the unwanted discoloration, or melanin "black spots", of muscle fillets from farmed salmon....
Effect of Dietary Inclusion of Seaweeds on Intestinal Proteolytic Activity of Juvenile Sea Bream
In the last years considerable attention has been paid on the use of seaweeds (SW) as a possible ingredient for aquafeeds. Red, green and brown SW can be taken from their natural habitat and brought to the shore by the action of winds and tides, write...
Horizontally Transferred Genes in the Genome of Pacific White Shrimp
In recent years, with the development of next-generation sequencing technology, a growing number of genes have been reported as being horizontally transferred from prokaryotes to eukaryotes, most of them involving arthropods. As a member of the phylum...
Effects of Salinity and Exercise on Atlantic Salmon Postsmolts Reared in RAS
Speaking at Aquaculture Europe 2013, T. Ytrestøyl et al, Nofima, Norway, discussed the effects that salinity and exercise have on the performance and physiology of Atlantic salmon postsmolts reared in recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS)....
Effects of Slaughtering Methods on Protein Denaturation of Frozen Pacu Fillets
In order to gain more understanding of the link between slaughtering and meat quality, M. M. Viegas et al, University São Paulo, evaluated how different slaughtering methods for pacu influence the protein denaturation of frozen fillets stored for 180...
Ending Child Labour for Girls and Boys in the Fisheries Sector
More than 129 million child labourers in the world work in the agriculture sector, which includes fisheries, aquaculture, forestry and livestock. These girls and boys, between the ages of 5 and 17, are performing work that interferes with their education...
Importance of Feed Enzymes for Shrimp and Fish in Sustainable Aquaculture
Enzymes are one of the many types of protein in biological systems. With pressure to find more sustainable sources of fish feed for aquaculture, researchers have been trying to improve the nutritional value of fish feed by enzyme supplementation, writes...
Effect of Ammonium Supplements on the Early Stage Development of Giant Clams
The role of heterotrophic and autotrophic nutrition in the early stages of giant clams is still equivocal. In particular, the significance of these two nutritional modes and the relative dependency of the clams at the early life stages are not clear,...
Escaped Sea Bream, Seabass from Mediterranean Farms: Implications for Sustainable Aquaculture
Sea bream and sea bass aquaculture is already widely established in the Mediterranean basin, mainly reared in coastal net-pen facilities. The rapid increase of farming activity has also lead to an increase of escape incidents in Mediterranean farms, said...
Promoting Investments in the Arab Fsheries Sector
Capture fisheries resources from marine, fresh and brackish waters around the globe are facing decreased landings due to various reasons such as over-fishing, oversized fishing fleets, irresponsible fishing, fishing with highly efficient technologies...
