Fishmeal-Free Feeds for Hybrid Tilapia
A series of experiments showed that fishmeal is not an essential ingredient in tilapia feeds and that plant protein-based diets can yield results similar to those obtained with diets containing 10 per cent fishmeal, write Nathan Gur and Guy Rubinstein,...
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....
Fisheries in Transition: Food and Nutrition Security Implications for the Global South
Fisheries and fish supply are undergoing a fundamental structural transition, as indicated by a ten country analysis. Aquaculture now provides around half the fish for direct human consumption and is set to grow further, but capture fisheries continue...
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 Pawpaw Seeds Powder in Nile Tilapia Diet: 1 Growth Performance, Survival, Feed Utilization, Carcass Composition of Fry and Fingerlings
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...
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...
Overview of Chile's Fisheries and Aquaculture Sector - February 2014
This article presents a brief summary of Chile's fisheries and aquaculture sectors. It also addresses the main institutions and guilds since the time when there were no regulations until now, where overfishing has lead to the need for regulations through...
Uncovering Solutions to Drive Ecologically Sound and Commercially Viable Models for Aquaculture
This report by Future of Fish (FoF) represents the first stage of an approach solving complex systemic problems in aquaculture. The insights gleaned through this research and analysis will allow FoF to recruit and convene a working group of entrepreneurs,...
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...
Social and Economic Dimensions of Carrageenan Seaweed Farming
This FAO document attempts to provide a balanced assessment and comparison of the social and economic performance of carrageenan seaweed farming in different countries. Various issues related to seaweed–carrageenan value chains are highlighted. The...
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...
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,...
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,...
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,...
Flatfish Conditioning for Stock Enhancement
For stock enhancement, the ideal end product is an individual that can survive in the wild until maturity. Conditioning fish for stock enhancement can increase survival and recapture rates, writes Michelle L. Walsh, University of New Hampshire. Taken...
