Arbitrarily primed PCR to type Vibrio spp. pathogenic for shrimp. (1/762)

A molecular typing study on Vibrio strains implicated in shrimp disease outbreaks in New Caledonia and Japan was conducted by using AP-PCR (arbitrarily primed PCR). It allowed rapid identification of isolates at the genospecies level and studies of infraspecific population structures of epidemiological interest. Clusters identified within the species Vibrio penaeicida were related to their area of origin, allowing discrimination between Japanese and New Caledonian isolates, as well as between those from two different bays in New Caledonia separated by only 50 km. Other subclusters of New Caledonian V. penaeicida isolates could be identified, but it was not possible to link those differences to accurate epidemiological features. This contribution of AP-PCR to the study of vibriosis in penaeid shrimps demonstrates its high discriminating power and the relevance of the epidemiological information provided. This approach would contribute to better knowledge of the ecology of Vibrio spp. and their implication in shrimp disease in aquaculture.  (+info)

Natural mass infection by heterophyid metacercariae in aquacultured Japanese eel in Taiwan. (2/762)

A natural mass infection of heterophyid metacercariae in aquacultured Japanese eel Anguilla japonica in Taiwan was observed. Of the 28,000 adult eels in 2 ponds, about 25,000 (90%) showed swollen, cloudy and white eyes. Although morbidity was about 90%, there was no mortality among the affected eels. Histopathological sections showed edema and hemorrhage of the eye. Numerous metacercariae were observed in the muscle tissues around the eyeball, the subcutaneous tissue and even in the cartilage. Of the 6 eels digested with artificial gastric juice, all were found to contain metacercariae in their muscle tissues. The average number of metacercariae recovered from the 6 eels was 1219, with a range of 50 to 3762. These metacercariae, when fed orally to immunodeficient (scid) mice, developed into adult worms which were identified as Procerovum cheni Hsu 1950. The naturally infected eels were transferred to a new pond without snails and their eye lesions were not apparent anymore after 2 wk. In a follow-up investigation, 19 of 20 apparently healthy eels in a nearby aquaculture farm were found to harbour metacercariae in their muscles. However, the number of the metacercariae ranged from 1 to 14, with an average of 4.21. This is the first report of heterophyid metacercariae causing mass morbidity in aquacultured eels.  (+info)

Isolation and characterization of Vibrio parahaemolyticus causing infection in Iberian toothcarp Aphanius iberus. (3/762)

High mortality among laboratory cultured Iberian toothcarp Aphanius iberus occurred in February 1997 in Valencia (Spain). The main signs of the disease were external haemorrhage and tail rot. Bacteria isolated from internal organs of infected fish were biochemically homogeneous and identified as Vibrio parahaemolyticus. The bacteria were haemolytic against erythrocytes from eel Anguilla anguilla, amberjack Seriola dumerili, toothcarp A. iberus and humans, and were Kanagawa-phenomenon-negative. Infectivity tests showed that the virulence for A. iberus was dependent on salinity. Finally, all strains were virulent for amberjack and eel.  (+info)

A yellow head virus gene probe: nucleotide sequence and application for in situ hybridization. (4/762)

A portion of the genome of yellow head virus (YHV) of penaeid shrimp was cloned and the cDNA fragment (1161 bp) was designated clone 3-27. The fragment was labeled with digoxigenin and hybridized in situ to tissue sections of YHV-infected Penaeus vannamei. Positively reacting tissues included those of the lymphoid organ, cuticular epithelium, and gills. In addition, connective tissue of hepatopancreas, heart, antennal gland, hematopoietic organ, nerve tract, midgut cecum and muscle reacted to the probe. The probe was highly specific since it hybridized only to tissues from YHV-infected shrimp. It did not react to those of uninfected shrimp or shrimp infected with WSSV (white spot syndrome virus), IHHNV (infectious hypodermal and hematopoietic necrosis virus), or TSV (Taura syndrome virus). The clone was sequenced, and primers were synthesized for rapid detection of YHV in hemolymph using RT-PCR (reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction). The strand that constituted the viral sequence in the cDNA was also determined via RT-PCR and in situ hybridization with a single-stranded RNA (ssRNA) probe.  (+info)

Indole-positive Vibrio vulnificus isolated from disease outbreaks on a Danish eel farm. (5/762)

Vibrio vulnificus was isolated in 1996 from 2 disease outbreaks on a Danish eel farm which used brackish water. A characteristic clinical sign was extensive, deep muscle necrosis in the head region. V. vulnificus was isolated from kidney, mucus, spleen, gill and intestine of diseased eels. Thirty-two isolates were examined phenotypically and serologically for pathogenicity to eels and for correlation to ribotype and plasmid profile. Biochemically, the isolates showed properties similar to those described previously for eel-pathogenic strains of V. vulnificus, with the exception of indole production. Virulence was evaluated by LD50 (the 50% lethal dose), which ranged from < 9.4 x 10(3) to 2.3 x 10(5) CFU (colony-forming units) per fish. The isolates which were lethal for eels showed identical ribotypes and serotypes. A relationship between certain plasmids and virulence was not found. A serotyping system based on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-associated O antigen type and on carbohydrate capsule antigens showed that the eel-virulent isolates shared a common LPS-based homogeneous O serogroup and a capsule antigen. V. vulnificus serovar O4 and capsule type 9 was identical serologically to the Japanese isolate ATCC 33149 and was the agent responsible for the disease outbreaks that occurred on the Danish eel farm. Despite absence of antibiotic resistance, treatment had little effect and disease reoccurred.  (+info)

Vibrios associated with Litopenaeus vannamei larvae, postlarvae, broodstock, and hatchery probionts. (6/762)

Several bacteriological surveys were performed from 1994 to 1996 at different Litopenaeus vannamei hatcheries (in Ecuador) and shrimp farms (in Mexico). Samples were taken from routine productions of healthy and diseased L. vannamei larvae, postlarvae, and their culture environment and from healthy and diseased juveniles and broodstock. In Ecuador, the dominant bacterial flora associated with shrimp larvae showing symptoms of zoea 2 syndrome, mysis mold syndrome, and bolitas syndrome has been determined. Strains were characterized by Biolog metabolic fingerprinting and identified by comparison to a database of 850 Vibrio type and reference strains. A selection of strains was further genotypically fine typed by AFLP. Vibrio alginolyticus is predominantly present in all larval stages and is associated with healthy nauplius and zoea stages. AFLP genetic fingerprinting shows high genetic heterogeneity among V. alginolyticus strains, and the results suggest that putative probiotic and pathogenic strains each have specific genotypes. V. alginolyticus was found to be associated with larvae with the zoea 2 syndrome and the mysis mold syndrome, while different Vibrio species (V. alginolyticus and V. harveyi) are associated with the bolitas syndrome. V. harveyi is associated with diseased postlarvae, juveniles, and broodstock. The identities of the strains identified as V. harveyi by the Biolog system could not be unambiguously confirmed by AFLP genomic fingerprinting. Vibrio strain STD3-988 and one unidentified strain (STD3-959) are suspected pathogens of only juvenile and adult stages. V. parahaemolyticus, Photobacterium damselae, and V. mimicus are associated with juvenile and adult stages.  (+info)

Gill lamellar pillar cell necrosis, a new birnavirus disease in Japanese eels. (7/762)

Since the late 1980s, a birnaviral gill disease has been occurring in Japanese eels Anguilla japonica reared in warmwater ponds in western regions in Japan. Diseased eels mostly displayed marked formations of aneurysmal hematomas within gill lamellae and high mortalities. Histological examination revealed necrosis of pillar cells and subsequent aggregation of erythrocytes inside the lamellar capillaries, and proliferation of interlamellar epithelia onto the lamellae. Gastric gland cells were also necrotized. Electron microscopy revealed birnavirus infection in lamellar pillar cells. The causative birnavirus was isolated and cultured in fish cell lines and was found to be related to an infectious pancreatic necrosis virus (IPNV) Sp serotype by neutralization tests. The viral pathogenicity was confirmed by the results of histopathological examinations and infectivity experiments.  (+info)

Routes of entry of Piscirickettsia salmonis in rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss. (8/762)

Since 1989, Piscirickettsia salmonis, the causal agent of piscirickettsiosis, has killed millions of farmed salmonids each year in southern Chile. The portal of entry for the pathogen was investigated by use of selected experimental infections in juvenile rainbow trout (12 g). The methods used were intraperitoneal injection, subcutaneous injection, patch contact on skin, patch contact on gills, intestinal intubation and gastric intubation. Cumulative mortalities at Day 33 post-inoculation were 98, 100, 52, 24, 24, and 2%, respectively. It was shown that intact skin and gills could be penetrated by P. salmonis. The high mortality obtained in subcutaneously injected fish indicated that skin injuries could facilitate the invasion of this pathogen. Results suggested that the main entry sites are through the skin and gills and that the oral route may not be the normal method by which P. salmonis initiates infection of salmonids.  (+info)

Half of Americas seafood comes from aquaculture-the cultivation of fish and other marine life for food consumption-and that share is expected to grow. The federal government has proposed a fivefold increase in U.S. aquaculture productive, but policy makers need to take steps to ensure that the growth is carried out in an environmentally responsible way.. In its report, Sustainable Marine Aquaculture: Fulfilling the Promise, Managing the Risks, the task force recommended a suite of protective standards to ensure that aquaculture development poses a minimal threat to the ocean environment. The task force advocated evaluation of environmental risks prior to granting permits for marine aquaculture, and the inclusion of permit conditions to eliminate or minimize those risks. The panel urged that only native species of the local wild genotype be used in marine aquaculture unless the risk from doing so can be shown to be negligible. The task force also recommended enhanced research and development and ...

Some estimates of aquaculture withdrawals are derived from State permits that report water withdrawals or return flows for aquaculture facilities. The USEPA Permit Compliance System database also is a source of return-flow data that are used to estimate water withdrawals. State regulatory agencies, State offices of the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), and Cooperative Extension Service offices also provide information used to estimate aquaculture withdrawals in some States. Many of the 2015 withdrawals for aquaculture were estimated according to methods described by Lovelace (2009), using aquaculture data compiled for the NASS Census of Aquaculture with standardized water-use coefficients and water-replacement rates. The data included statistics for various aquacultured species and aquaculture ponds, raceways, tanks, egg incubators, pens, and cages at commercial and non-commercial aquaculture operations.. ...

As part of its commitment to developing a sustainable marine aquaculture industry, the State Government is establishing aquaculture development zones for marine finfish.. An aquaculture development zone is a designated area of water selected for its suitability for a specific aquaculture sector (in this case, marine finfish). Two zones are being established: one in the Kimberley, which has now been declared; and one in the States Mid West. The aim is to make it faster, less costly and more efficient to set up aquaculture businesses.. The zones will provide opportunities for existing aquaculture operations (fish farms) to expand and new ones to be established, providing economic benefits to the local community through job creation and regional economic diversification.. Aquaculture zones provide investment ready platforms with strategic environmental approvals and management policies already in place, allowing commercial aquaculture operations to be set up without the need for lengthy, complex ...

Traditional aquaculture has to a large extent used herbivore species with limited requirements for additional feeding. However, in intensive aquaculture production one farm carnivore species like salmon and also feeds herbivore species with fishmeal as this increase growth. This has lead to a growing concern that increased aquaculture production poses an environmental threat to the species targeted in reduction fisheries as increased demand increase fishing pressure. In this paper we address this question along two lines. First, under which management regimes may increased demand pose a threat to the species in question. Second, we investigate what is the market for fishmeal. Is fishmeal a unique product or is it a part of the larger market for oilmeals which includes soyameal? This is an important issue since the market structure for fishmeal is instrumental for whether increased aquaculture production may affect fishmeal prices, and thereby increase fishing pressure in industrial fisheries ...
The demand for fish in Asia and the Pacific region is estimated to increase by 30 percent by 2030 as a result of the anticipated population growth and the improved living standards of the people of the region. In order to meet such an increased demand for fish, aquaculture production will need to increase by 50-60 percent from the present level by 2030 with the capture fish production remaining static.. Intensification of aquaculture is a major factor that has contributed to the outstanding growth (nearly 10 percent annually) of the aquaculture industry in Asia-Pacific in the past three decades.. Such growth has greatly contributed to food security and the nutrition of the people, rural livelihoods and economic growth in the region. The Asia-Pacific region consistently has contributed over 90 percent to the world aquaculture production for decades. In Asia, aquaculture supplies over 60 percent of food fish, comprising over 20 percent of the total protein intake of the Asian population.. The ...
They range from small 50 watt heaters to larger 300w aquarium heaters up to 500w titanium heaters. Inline heaters are capable of producing far more heat than a simple submersible heater. They are called inline because they are literally a heater within a pipe that is placed in the return line after the pump. These heaters usually require a specific flow threshold to become active, so they are best suited for larger systems with larger pumps. Our first inline heater was an old heater from a jacuzzi! Take the time to properly engineer your aquaculture system, even if you are just doing a small desktop or cabinet system. Match your equipment to your fishes needs and they will thrive. Keeping your fish happy and healthy will ensure that they produce ample fertilizer for the microbes and plants in your system.. Read about Aquaculture and Fish Consumables here..

... , the worlds fastest-growing food production sector, is set to overtake capture fisheries as the major source of seafood and projected to provide 62 per cent of global seafood by 2030. Global demand for seafood is increasing and capture fisheries are at, or in some locations may have exceeded, their maximum sustainable yield; therefore, to meet future demand, the growth of aquaculture production will need to increase.. In 2014/15, the value of Australian aquaculture production was approximately $1.2 billion and accounted for 43 per cent of the value of Australian fisheries production. The largest Australian aquaculture industry sector is Tasmanian salmon, which continues to grow substantially and in 2014/15 was worth nearly $650 million. In Australia, for the decade 2004/05 to 2014/15, the pattern of production has changed significantly, with a shift from the production of wild-caught stocks (down 84,711 tonnes) towards production of aquaculture products (up 41,053 ...
Gold Coast Marine Aquaculture - The History. Gold Coast Marine Aquaculture (GCMA), producers of Gold Coast Tiger Prawns, was founded in 1986 by Noel Herbst on a cane farm at the mouth of the Logan River. The Herbst family arrived in Australia in 1863 on the ship the Baucite from which Noels great grandparents disembarked to settle on the Gold Coast. There the family remained for the next 148 years as farmers with Noel continuing on the family profession working the land farming cattle and cane.. Noel, being a visionary, soon recognised the potential for aquaculture and, with the help of his late wife Elizabeth, started a small prawn farm, turning some of their cane paddocks adjacent to the Logan River into prawn ponds.. Over the following twenty-five years, Noel and his family learnt the hard way that prawn farming is not a simple process and certainly not risk free. By being hands on, persevering, innovating, employing the right people and reinvesting every dollar earned, what began as a small ...

Marine aquaculture is the raising marine organisms either in enclosed cages and nets in the ocean or in man-made tanks on land. The most common species produced in U.S. aquaculture operations are mainly oysters, clams, mussels, shrimp, and salmon. There is also production of cod, moi, yellowtail, barramundi, seabass, and seabream, but these are in much smaller quantities. The potential for aquaculture to provide protein sources to the rapidly increasing global population is very high, and research into this technology has been heavily invested in around the world. (Source: NOAA Fisheries - Office of Aquaculture). There are some issues with aquaculture, however, and marine aquaculture in particular. When fish are raised in a protected and controlled environment, they become adapted to an artificial environment and lack much of the selection pressures that would normally influence genetic traits in wild populations. This often means that fish produced in hatcheries have a lower fitness when ...

Aquaculture is the fastest growing food producing sector worldwide, currently providing half of all fish for human food. Fish disease prevention and management are essential for the sustainability of the aquaculture industry.. ParaFishControl aims to improve the productivity, economic performance and image of European aquaculture through improved biosecurity, health and welfare of farmed fish.. Dr Ariadna Sitjà-Bobadilla, ParaFishControl project coordinator, explains: "This project is very timely, as parasitic diseases constitute a key constraint for sustainable finfish aquaculture in Europe. Parasites and related infections are increasingly responsible for severe damages in farmed fish, which significantly reduces aquaculture production and economy.". ParaFishControl will increase our knowledge of parasite biology, their life-cycles and interactions with fish hosts of commercial interest.. The project will develop prophylactic measures, diagnostic tools and methods to detect parasites in fish ...
Aquaculture is defined simply as the farming and husbandry of aquatic organisms. In practice aquaculture or mariculture (saltwater aquaculture) involves commercially growing seafood for consumers. It also involves the sciences of natural resource management and enhancement, collection methods, aquarium technology, facility construction and maintenance, and biotechnology production from marine organisms.. Carteret Community College offers the Aquaculture Technology program and emphasizes applied marine sciences and mariculture. Lecture courses are offered in the traditional classroom or as online courses, which use the Blackboard (an Internet portal with rich media content to enhance comprehension). The focus of the program is on salt-water species like oysters, clams, soft-shell crabs, and marine finfish like flounder, drum and bait minnows but some freshwater aquaculture species are also covered.. Students learn hands-on skills through the Aquaculture Practicum series. Skills such as water ...
The 2004 Aquaculture Reforms were intended to streamline the duel consenting framework by introducing Aquaculture Management Areas (AMAs). AMAs were defined areas ring-fenced for aquaculture in Regional Coastal Environment Plans. The concept behind AMAs was to create a single process to approve consents under which adverse effects on fisheries were assessed before aquaculture management areas were defined in coastal plans, removing fishing from the matters to be assessed at consenting stage.. The 2004 amendments and the creation of Aquaculture Management Areas proved unsuccessful, creating significant impediments for both the aquaculture industry and councils in terms of planning for and investing in aquaculture. No new water space was consented for marine farming under the 2004 regime.. ...
The Massachusetts company that last year purchased the Bell Fish Co. LLC in Albany says the indoor fish farm could begin generating revenue late next year. AquaBounty Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq: AQB) says the east central Indiana operation will become the companys first U.S. commercial production site and could begin being stocked within the next few months.. In March of last year, Texas-based private equity firm Trive Capital acquired the assets of Bell, which ran the 45-acre property that included what was considered one of the largest recirculating aquaculture system facilities in North America. AquaBounty announced its $14 million acquisition of Bell about four months later.

Greenpeace seeks to ensure clean and healthy oceans for the future, and part of this is working to improve the standards of international seafood trade. As wild stocks decline, the demand for farmed shrimp, salmon, tuna, tilapia and other marine finfish is on the rise. Therefore, due to its sheer size and its impacts on the oceans, the aquaculture industry is an important part of the overall picture.. Aquaculture is not a solution to overfishing. Traditional forms of aquaculture can and do make substantial contributions to food supplies in areas of the world where food needs are acute, but these need to be sustainable.. Many modern aquaculture practices emphasise the unsustainable production of species for high-value export markets. Rapid development and expansion of intensive aquaculture for species such as salmon and shrimp has, for example, resulted in widespread degradation of the environment and the displacement of coastal fishing and farming communities..

Good Afternoon! I know that youve heard from us a lot recently, but with the recent release of the NOAA and Department of Commerce aquaculture policies, I thought it best to remind everyone what we as an agency are trying to accomplish and why it is so important for you, the public, to weigh in.. As you probably know, NOAA and the Department of Commerce released complementary aquaculture policies for public review and comment on February 9th. These draft policies are a reflection of the substantial input that we received during a public comment period in 2010 that included Listening Sessions all over the country as well as an online forum. That input was critical to forming effective, balanced aquaculture policies that will enable sustainable aquaculture production in the United States and thereby meet some of the challenges that we face with regard to seafood production, healthy oceans, jobs, and food security.. These policies enable a national framework for domestic aquaculture and I ...

In 1994, world aquaculture production reached 25.5 million mt, valued at US$ 39.83 billion. Asia contributed 89.9 % of this total, and has since continued to dominate global production. The drive to produce more fish and shellfish to meet the growing demand has lead many aquaculturists in Asia to intensify their operations. In many instances, the complex balance between the fish/shellfish and the environment is not well understood, the organism under culture subsequently becoming stressed and prone to infections. As we have already witnessed, disease has been and will continue to be a major constraint to the development of the aquaculture industry. Considering the FAOs priority on developing sustainable aquaculture, the large Asian contribution to global aquaculture production and the seemingly high losses of revenue due to diseases and health-related problems, FAO, in consultation with the Network of Aquaculture Centres in the Asia-Pacific (NACA), the Aquatic Animal Health Research Institute ...

According to FAO aquaculture accounts for nearly 50 percent of the worlds food fish and is identified as probably the fastest growing food-producing sector globally.. As the world´s population continues to increase over the coming decades, and global living standards rise, demand for fish will keep on growing. With most wild capture fisheries already fully exploited, much of that demand will have to be met from aquaculture. FAO estimates that global aquaculture production will reach about 92 Mt in 2023, an increase of 38% over next decade. This amounts to an annual growth rate of 2.5%.. Fishmeal and fish oil provide a balanced amount of all essential amino acids, minerals, phospholipids and fatty acids (DHA and EPA) and the use of fish meal and fish oil in feed for aquaculture constitutes a very effective use of marine oil and protein.. Even though fish feeds hold lower inclusion rates of fishmeal and fish oil than previously, fishmeal and fish oil are the best performing ingredients in fish ...
Hello and welcome to the second edition of the NOAA Aquaculture Program newsletter. We certainly received a lot of supportive feedback on the initial issue last month. Something readers pointed out was that - although they were familiar with U.S. aquaculture - they were not very familiar with NOAAs program. Well, wed like to change that. To find out more about our program, go to our website. NOAA, along with many other agencies, was front and center in San Diego last month at the Aquaculture 2010 conference. Over 3,000 people representing researchers, growers, resource agencies, businesses, and academia participated. One group that attracted lots of positive attention was the University of Miamis Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences aquaculture team. Along with their professor, Dr. Daniel Benetti, this team of rising stars highlighted the type of positive energy that will be the driver for marine aquaculture in the U.S. and abroad. Dan and his students are currently ...
Aquaculture in Mozambique represents an additional source of animal protein, contributing to food security, stimulating regional development, generating foreign income, creating new jobs and reducing pressure on wild stocks, particularly the shrimp stocks. Shrimp aquaculture currently represents a little more than 2.5 percent of the countrys total shrimp production. There is potential for further aquaculture development in Mozambique. The country is well positioned for shrimp farming and shrimp exports command a high price in Europe. Studies have shown there are 33 000 ha available for the short and medium term development of coastal aquaculture, free from conflicting uses and protected resources. The establishment of shrimp and fish farms is one of the Governments major plans. The country is bestowed with a large number of lakes such as Niassa (Lake Malawi), Chiuta, Chilwa, Amaramba and dams such as Cahora Bassa, Chicamba Real, Massingir, Corumana and Pequenos Libombos.

Coastal zones support fisheries that provide food for humans and feed for animals. The decline of fisheries worldwide has fostered the development of aquaculture. Recent research has shown that extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) synthesized by microorganisms contribute to sustainable aquaculture production, providing feed to the cultured species, removing waste and contributing to the hygiene of closed systems. As ubiquitous components of coastal microbial habitats at the air-seawater and seawater-sediment interfaces as well as of biofilms and microbial aggregates, EPS mediate deleterious processes that affect the performance and productivity of aquaculture facilities, including biofouling of marine cages, bioaccumulation and transport of pollutants. These biomolecules may also contribute to the persistence of harmful algal blooms (HABs) and their impact on cultured species. EPS may also exert a positive influence on aquaculture activity by enhancing the settling of aquaculturally valuable larvae
Introduction:. Aquaculture is the farming of aquatic lives like fish, crustaceans, mollusks and aquatic plants. It is a properly planned farming that is held under mild conditions. Farming suggests some form of intervention in the rearing process to increase production, such as regular stocking, feeding, protection from predators, etc. Farming also suggests the individual or corporate ownership of the stock being cultivated for some time. Moreover, in current aquaculture practice, products from several pounds of wild fish are used to make one pound of a piscivorous fish like salmon. It may involve many other framings as well. Special kinds of aquaculture include fish farming, shrimp farming, oyster farming, mariculture, algaculture and the cultivation of ornamental fish. Special methods include aquaponics and integrated multi-tropic aquaculture, both of which integrate fish farming and plant farming.. Harvest stagnation in wild fisheries and overexploitation of popular marine species, mixed with ...
There are only three fundamental sources for increasing seafood supply: 1) better management and utilization of wild fish stocks, 2) aquaculture and 3) aquaculture-enhanced wild fisheries. However, nearly all of the significant growth in global seafood harvest and international trade over the past three decades has, and in the future will, come from aquaculture. This has important implications for business, resource management, international trade and global food security. This is compounded by the scale and dynamics of emerging economies such as China and India. Aquaculture has had annual growth rates of over 7 percent in recent decades, it accounts for more than half of seafood supply and recently it passed the global production of beef. Despite this growth, the potential for added growth and improved efficiency in the aquaculture is still tremendous. As the aquaculture industry grows, uncertainty in quantity and price will likely decline relative to the traditional fishery sector. This will ...
The FLAG is situated in the south of the Tuscany Region on the Mediterranean Sea (Mar Tirreno). This region has a long fisheries tradition, nevertheless, the fisheries communities population and fleet have been reduced by 50% over the last 30 years. The marine aquaculture in this area also has very ancient roots, dating back to the Etruscans and Romans. Todays aquaculture production in the FLAG territory accounts for more than 15% of the national total.. The main challenges the FLAG encounters is the involvement of the fisheries communities into innovative activities linked to the cultural heritage of the territory and the modernisation and sustainable development of aquaculture production.. ...

The economics of aquaculture is reviewed on two levels: micro and macro. Micro-economics in aquaculture deals mainly with the management measures and elements affecting the efficiency of operation at the farm level, while macro-economics addresses the assessment of social benefits and costs of an aquaculture project. If aquaculture is socially beneficial but unattractive to private investors, public support on credit, marketing, extension, training, and research may be appropriate, especially during the early stages of development. The importance of economic analysis is emphasized since it provides a basis not only in the decision making of the individual farmer, but also in the formulation of aquaculture policies. Thus, greater attention should be focused on the improvement of economic data for analysis.. In the US great strides have been taken by the industry to insure best management practices for the sustainability, consistency, economic feasibility, food safety, and environmentally friendly ...

As part of a regional review of aquaculture being undertaken by the Inland Water Resources and Aquaculture Service, through the Regional Office for Africa (Accra, Ghana) of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), this document reviews the recent history of aquaculture extension in five representative countries of sub-Saharan Africa. Country reviews were commissioned, analysed and synthesized. A number of extension guides, field manuals and dissemination tools were compared. Each of the reviewed countries has a similar history of aquaculture development, beginning with colonial experiments in the 1950s, through a period of neglect following independence in the 1960s, a period of intense international involvement in small-scale rural development (including aquaculture) in the 1970s and 80s ending in a period of reflection on results in the 1990s. Many of these past projects were driven by foreign donors interested primarily in poverty alleviation and working on the basis of
Australis CEO Josh Goldman first began experimenting with closed-containment aquaculture in the 1980s, when he was a student at Hampshire College.[3] After graduating, he founded one of the first commercial aquaponics farms, and went on to spend the next fifteen years in commercialize closed containment-farming technology as an entrepreneur and consultant. In the early 2000s, Goldman spent three years prospecting for new types of fish to farm and was introduced to barramundi by an Australian entrepreneur.[4] After testing over 30 species of fish in order to determine which was optimal for aquaculture, Goldman chose barramundi because of its low environmental impact and ability to breed in captivity, in addition to what he believed to be an appealing taste and exceptional nutritional value.[5] The company was founded in 2004 in Turners Falls, Massachusetts, where it first began producing barramundi using recirculating aquaculture system technology in Western Massachusetts. Although Australis was ...

Approximately 26% of Egyptians are resource-poor and suffer from a series of nutritional challenges, including high rates of childhood stunting, and vitamin and mineral deficiencies. The Sustainable Transformation of Egypts Aquaculture Market System (STREAMS) project aims to increase production of inexpensive, nutritious and safe fish from sustainable aquaculture systems to help improve the health and nutrition of Egypts resource-poor while creating employment and increasing incomes along the aquaculture value chain.
This hopeful and very convincing TED talk by Mike Velings (Netherlands) makes a sound case for fish farming as the one hopeful alternative for feeding the planet protein. He cites statistics that in the past fifty years weve quadrupled our human protein consumption from 71 million tons to 310 million tons of meats, and milk, and eggs, and that this demand will keep going up rapidly as nations become richer and human population grows. Now, 2.6 billion peoples protein source is from the ocean. Were depleting ocean fish stocks severely and alarmingly by overfishing. Quoting Jacques Cousteau, he sees the solution in aquaculture, or fish farming. Fish are healthy meat and help prevent heart disease. His enlightenment about seeing fish farming as the solution came from a Mission Blue trip with Sylvia Earle. He and his wife (who he met on the trip) decided they wanted to make a difference in ocean conservation and that fish farming was the right direction to go ...

ASC has launched a project which aims to develop the ASC Feed Standard. ASC invites experts from the aquaculture feed industry to join a working group and actively contribute to the future of responsible aquaculture feed.. The project is starting shortly and a new, globally applicable, ASC Feed Standard should be ready by the end of 2015.. Feed is an essential element in fish farming; however, it is a major contributor to the overall environmental impact of aquaculture. Some of the issues to be addressed, for example, include the production of key ingredients used in making the feed.. The standard will set out requirements and introduce consistency for the aquaculture feed industry to operate on a more environmentally sound and socially responsible basis. It will allow manufacturers who have demonstrated their environmentally responsible production practices to gain recognition for their efforts.. For now, feed plants cannot be ASC certified, however, some are already becoming more responsible ...

Aquaculture, or fish farming, is the worlds fastest-growing form of animal food production, having overtaken beef in 2011. While worldwide fisheries have been all but depleted, aquaculture holds the immense potential to provide a growing population with a cheap and sustainable source of protein.. However, as it is currently practiced, the aquaculture industry is dangerously unsustainable. The problem lies in the production of the feed for these farmed fish. It might surprise you to learn that the main source of protein in fish food is, in fact, fish. Small, low-value wild fish such as anchovies, herrings and sardines are caught in the ocean using destructive methods such as dynamite fishing and trawling. These forage fish are then ground up into fish meal, which is in turn incorporated into pellets that are fed to higher-value farmed fish such as salmon, trout and tilapia. Approximately 30 percent of all wild-caught fish is used for fishmeal. Were feeding fish to fish and it doesnt make ...

The Kauffman Aquaculture Center (KAC) lies 30 miles north of VIMS main campus on a tributary of the Rappahannock River known as Locklies Creek.. The Kauffman Center was specifically designed to enhance and extend the work and facilities of VIMS Aquaculture Genetics and Breeding Technology Center (ABC). ABC was established by the Virginia General Assembly in 1997 to explore and promote the development of aquaculture in the Commonwealth.. The Kauffman Center significantly expands the scope of aquaculture research at VIMS by providing a facility that was specifically designed to hold both native and non-native species in quarantine. Stocks of native oysters in Chesapeake Bay have declined to the lowest point in history due to many years of overfishing and disease. In 2003, the National Academy of Sciences recommended that evaluation of non-natives be pursued carefully using triploid, sterile varieties. VIMS developed the technology to enable this recommendation, and, through the facilities ...

Consumer awareness of sustainable aquaculture production has led to increased interest in certification for sustainable aquaculture practices. In contrast to common belief, this certification encompasses a broader scope than just environmental issues. It also covers areas such as social responsibility and compliance with legal frameworks.
A constant water temperature is required for fish farming all year round. Supply and demand are less constant in greenhouse horticulture: relatively much is heated in the winter and hardly ever in the summer. In addition, there are more and more cultivation companies with a geothermal source. This creates a surplus in the summer. Selling geothermal heat could be another revenue model for geothermal resources.. To this end, WUR developed an energy model for the combination of geothermal-greenhouse horticulture-aquaculture. To validate this model, an advanced fish farming system was installed at WUR in Bleiswijk in early 2019. It is a so-called recirculating aquaculture system (RAS). The largest tanks in this system contain around 10,000 liters of water containing thousands of fish. Data is collected from, among other things, the water quality, temperature, water consumption and CO2 produced by the fish.. WUR carries out this research in collaboration with partners from Iceland, Slovenia and the ...

Aquaculture can be divided into two main forms of culture; intensive and extensive. Much of the interest over the years in aquaculture has been primarily focused on the intensive culture of fish.. Intensive culture involves intervention in the rearing process through supplemental feeding, water aeration and exchange and in some cases environmental manipulation.. Traditionally, intensive culture has much higher production rates, shorter grow-out periods, greater overheads and production costs and potentially greater returns per unit area.. However, trials have highlighted a number of possible aquaculture candidates generally unsuitable to intensive culture but suitable for extensive culture. Extensive culture does not rely on excessive intervention in the growing process. The stock is left to grow on its own, utilising natural food sources. Low stocking densities remove the need for water exchange and supplementary aeration. No nutrients (e.g feed) are added to the system during the grow-out ...
In an Aquaponics system, water from an aquaculture system is fed to a hydroponic system where the by-products are broken down by nitrifying bacteria initially into nitrites and subsequently into nitrates, which are utilized by the plants as nutrients, and the water is then recirculated back to the aquaculture system ...

ZAMBIA - The Zambian government has announced the start of a fish farming project aimed at boosting the production of fish for both local consumption and export.. The Aquaculture Productivity and Market Enhancement project aims at achieving the target of producing 50,000 tons of fish per year in two years.. Minister of Fisheries and Livestock Michael Katambo said the African Development Bank (AfDB) has pumped US$50 million into the project.. Apart from producing fish for local consumption, the project will help the country produce surplus fish for export, he added.. According to him, the high demand for fish in neighboring countries such as the Democratic Republic of Congo as well as the international market provides an opportunity for the country to boost fish production.. The project targets small and medium enterprises who will be given loans to start fish farming projects..

Marylands wild fisheries have been the focus of local economies and cultures for generations. But some state residents have turned to fish aquaculture at various points to supply a growing population with food and protect wild stocks. While finfish aquaculture is not a major industry in Maryland today, growing fish like striped bass in a pond or in cages does have advantages. Farm-raised fish, for instance, grow faster than wild fish.

Inter-specific hybrids have been produced to increase growth rate, improve productivity through hybrid vigor, transfer desirable traits, reduce unwanted reproduction through production of sterile fish, combine other valuable traits such as good flesh quality, disease resistance and increase environmental tolerances, better food conversion, take advantages of sexual dimorphism and increase harvesting rate in culture systems. Hybrids play a significant role for increase in aquaculture production of several species of freshwater and marine fishes; for example, hybrid catfish in Thailand, hybrid stripped bass in the USA, hybrid tilapia in Israel and hybrid characids in Venezuela. Despite its wide-spread use in aquaculture, there have been an impression that hybrids do not hold much attraction for aquaculturist. With the expansion of aquaculture sector and the increased number of species being bred and farmed, there are hybrids that now account for a substantial proportion of national aquaculture ...
