Effect of low ambient mineral concentrations on the accumulation of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus by early life stages of the air-breathing armoured catfish Megalechis personata (Siluriformes: Callichthyidae). (1/338)

The accumulation of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus was measured during an 8-week period in the early life stages of the air-breathing armoured catfish Megalechis personata acclimated to low-mineral fresh water (0.073 mmol l-1 calcium, 0.015 mmol l-1 magnesium, <0.001 mmol l-1 phosphate) and high-mineral fresh water (0.59 mmol l-1 calcium, 1.94 mmol l-1 magnesium, <0.001 mmol l-1 phosphate). The fish accumulated calcium twice as fast and phosphorus 1.5 times as fast in low-mineral fresh water (LMF) as in high-mineral fresh water (HMF), while the rate of accumulation of magnesium did not differ in LMF and HMF. The difference in the rates of accumulation of calcium and phosphorus between LMF and HMF was independent of the growth performance (food intake) in LMF and HMF. The mineral content of young M. personata from natural swamps and rainforest creeks in Suriname followed the LMF accumulation curves. The transition from aquatic respiration to bimodal respiration in the third week after hatching did not affect rates of mineral accumulation. The high rates of accumulation of calcium and magnesium of M. personata in LMF of 654 and 58 micromol h-1 kg-1, respectively, exceed the rates of uptake of calcium and magnesium of teleosts reported in the literature. The high rates of mineral accumulation in the early life stages of M. personata reflect the exponential growth during the first 8 weeks after hatching and the requirements of the juveniles while building their dermal armour. M. personata is well-adapted to neotropical fresh waters with an extremely low mineral content. The accumulation of calcium and phosphorus is discussed in relation to the function of the bony armour of M. personata.  (+info)

Isolation of a single carboxyl-carboxylate proton binding site in the pore of a cyclic nucleotide-gated channel. (2/338)

The pore of the catfish olfactory cyclic nucleotide-gated (CNG) channel contains four conserved glutamate residues, one from each subunit, that form a high-affinity binding site for extracellular divalent cations. Previous work showed that these residues form two independent and equivalent high-pKa (approximately 7.6) proton binding sites, giving rise to three pH-dependent conductance states, and it was suggested that the sites were formed by pairing of the glutamates into two independent carboxyl-carboxylates. To test further this physical picture, wild-type CNG subunits were coexpressed in Xenopus oocytes with subunits lacking the critical glutamate residue, and single channel currents through hybrid CNG channels containing one to three wild-type (WT) subunits were recorded. One of these hybrid channels had two pH-dependent conductance states whose occupancy was controlled by a single high-pKa protonation site. Expression of dimers of concatenated CNG channel subunits confirmed that this hybrid contained two WT and two mutant subunits, supporting the idea that a single protonation site is made from two glutamates (dimer expression also implied the subunit makeup of the other hybrid channels). Thus, the proton binding sites in the WT channel occur as a result of the pairing of two glutamate residues. This conclusion places these residues in close proximity to one another in the pore and implies that at any instant in time detailed fourfold symmetry is disrupted.  (+info)

Protein kinase Cbeta and delta selectively phosphorylate odorant and metabotropic glutamate receptors. (3/338)

Recombinant protein segments from a metabotropic glutamate receptor and from an odorant receptor were used as substrates in protein kinase C phosphorylation assays. Protein kinase Cbeta and delta phosphorylated an intracellular consensus phosphorylation site in the metabotropic glutamate receptor. Only protein kinase Cdelta phosphorylated a novel extracellular consensus phosphorylation site in the odorant receptor. These results suggest differential regulation of these receptors by protein kinase C isotypes.  (+info)

Influence of the mu-chain C-terminal sequence on polymerization of immunoglobulin M. (4/338)

Immunoglobulin (IgM) is found in various states of covalent polymerization (microL)n, where n is typically 8, 10, or 12. The usual form of IgM of bony fish is tetrameric (8 microL units) as compared to the pentameric form (10 microL units) observed in cartilaginous fish and mammals. Two hypotheses were tested in this study. First, that the length of the mu-chain C terminus following Cys575 determines whether an IgM polymerizes as a tetramer or as a pentamer. This was tested by examining the covalent polymerization state of mouse IgM mutated to contain a series of mu-chain C-termini from bony and cartilaginous fish. The results proved this hypothesis wrong: mouse IgM bearing the C-terminal sequence of shark, salmon and cod mu-chain behaved identically to native mouse IgM, forming predominantly (microL)10 and (microL)12 forms. The second hypothesis was that an additional Cys residue near the C terminus of the mu-chain is responsible for the multiple covalent structures seen in IgM of the channel catfish. The addition of a catfish C terminus to the mouse mu-chain resulted, as predicted, in the production of a series of covalently bonded forms, with the major species being (microL)4. When a Ser-Cys unit was removed from the catfish C terminus added to the mouse mu-chain, this resulted in production of IgM indistinguishable in structure from that of wild-type mouse IgM.  (+info)

Zebrafish leopard gene as a component of the putative reaction-diffusion system. (5/338)

It has been suggested, on a theoretical basis, that a reaction-diffusion (RD) mechanism underlies pigment pattern formation in animals, but as yet, there is no molecular evidence for the putative mechanism. Mutations in the zebrafish gene, leopard, change the pattern from stripes to spots. Interestingly each allele gives a characteristic pattern, which varies in spot size, density and connectivity. That mutations in a single gene can generate such a variety of patterns can be understood using a RD model. All the pattern variations of leopard mutants can be generated in a simulation by changing a parameter value that corresponds to the reaction kinetics in a putative RD system. Substituting an intermediate value of the parameter makes the patterns similar to the heterozygous fish. These results suggest that the leopard gene product is a component of the putative RD mechanism.  (+info)

Tandem repeat structure of rhamnose-binding lectin from catfish (Silurus asotus) eggs. (6/338)

The primary structure of catfish (Silurus asotus) egg lectin (SAL) was determined. SAL cDNA contained 1448-bp nucleotides and 308 amino acid residues, deduced from open reading frame. The SAL mature protein composed of 285-amino acid residues was followed by a predicted signal sequence having 23 residues. The mRNA of SAL was found to be expressed in eggs, but not in liver. SAL is composed of three tandem repeat domain structures divided into exactly 95 amino acid residues each, and all cysteine positions of each domain were completely conserved. Sequence homologies between the three domains, termed D1 (1-95), D2 (96-190) and D3 (191-285), were as follows; D1-D2, 28%; D2-D3, 33%; D1-D3, 43%. Two conserved peptide motifs, -(AN)YGR(TD)S(T)XCS(TGR)P- and -DPCX(G)T(Y)KY(L)-, appear to exist at the N- and C-terminal regions of each domain, respectively. The kinetic parameters of SAL obtained by measuring surface plasmon resonance were as follows: K(a) (M(-1)) for neohesperidosyl-BSA, 7. 1 x 10(6); for melibiosyl-BSA, 4.9 x 10(6); and for lactosyl-BSA, 5. 2 x 10(5). These results show that RBLs including SAL comprise a family of alpha-galactosyl binding lectins having characteristic tandem repeat domain structures.  (+info)

Pivotal role for the cytoplasmic carboxyl-terminal tail of a nonmammalian gonadotropin-releasing hormone receptor in cell surface expression, ligand binding, and receptor phosphorylation and internalization. (7/338)

The gonadotropin-releasing hormone receptor (GnRH-R) of the African catfish couples to phospholipase C and belongs to the large family of G protein-coupled receptors. We recently demonstrated that removal of the carboxyl-terminal tail (S331-Q379) from the catfish GnRH-R results in a loss of agonist binding; the current study sought to define more precisely the role of this region in receptor function. Progressive truncations of the carboxyl-terminal tail decreased cell surface expression detected by either enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay or agonist-binding. The two most truncated receptors (stop331 and stop337) showed no binding but were detected at the cell surface by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. All receptors able to bind agonist were also able to activate phospholipase C. The catfish GnRH-R was phosphorylated after agonist-occupation and use of truncated mutants showed this phosphorylation to be within the carboxyl-terminal tail. Furthermore, studies with S356A, S363A and SS356,363AA mutant receptors demonstrated that Ser363 is a major site of agonist-induced phosphorylation. The absence of this phospho-acceptor site markedly impaired agonist-mediated receptor internalization. In addition, both, Ser363 and the last 12 residues of the tail (not containing Ser363) were shown to be important for beta-arrestin-dependent internalization. These observations are relevant to the regulatory function of the carboxyl-terminal tail of G protein-coupled receptors in general and are particularly intriguing given the absence of this region in mammalian GnRH-Rs.  (+info)

Inhibitory and stimulatory interactions between endogenous gonadotropin-releasing hormones in the African catfish (Clarias gariepinus). (8/338)

In the brain of all vertebrate classes, chicken (c) GnRH-II ([His(5), Trp(7),Tyr(8)]GnRH, cGnRH-II) is expressed in the mesencephalon. In addition, at least one other form of GnRH is expressed in the preoptical area/hypothalamus. In the human pituitary stalk and the mouse median eminence, cGnRH-II is present together with mammalian GnRH. Similarly, in the pituitary of several teleost fish (e.g., goldfish and eel, but not salmon or trout), a teleost GnRH is found together with cGnRH-II. These GnRHs are not colocalized in the same cells. Hence, these GnRH peptides may differentially regulate gonadotropin secretion and, in addition, may exert their effects simultaneously. The current study therefore investigated the effects of combinations of the two forms of GnRH present in the African catfish (Clarias gariepinus) pituitary-cGnRH-II and catfish GnRH ([His(5),Asn(8)]GnRH, cfGnRH)-on the cytosolic free calcium concentration ([Ca(2+)](i)) in single, Fura-2-loaded catfish gonadotrophs, as well as their effects on both in vitro and in vivo LH secretion. Both inhibitory and stimulatory effects of combinations of cfGnRH and cGnRH-II on [Ca(2+)](i) were observed, which were mirrored by their effects on both in vitro and in vivo LH secretion. The following pattern became apparent. The effect of intermediate or maximal effective cfGnRH doses was inhibited by the simultaneous presence of subthreshold or borderline effective cGnRH-II doses. Conversely, subthreshold or borderline effective concentrations of cfGnRH enhanced the effects of intermediate and maximal concentrations of cGnRH-II. In addition, combinations of cfGnRH and cGnRH-II concentrations that were equally active when tested separately showed an additive effect. The observed interactions between the two GnRHs may be of particular physiological relevance in the control of seasonal LH levels in the African catfish, as well as in other teleost species. Moreover, the occurrence of mutual inhibitory and stimulatory interactions between endogenous GnRHs may be a widespread aspect of GnRH action in vertebrates.  (+info)

The present study demonstrates that all three pathways for urea production, argininolysis, uricolysis and the OUC, are expressed during early development of C. gariepinus. Furthermore, the present finding (Fig.2) that urea accumulates in C. gariepinus larvae also suggests that the relatively high rates of urea excretion observed previously (Terjesen et al., 1997) represent metabolically produced urea. When the excretion data of Terjesen et al. (Terjesen et al., 1997) are employed, it can be estimated that urea accumulation accounts for less than 10% of total urea production (urea-N accumulation + excretion). Nevertheless, urea-N concentrations in fed C. gariepinus larvae are higher than in adult C. gariepinus tissues (Fig.2B), and two- to 10-fold higher than in rainbow trout and Atlantic cod larvae at first-feeding (Wright et al., 1995; Chadwick and Wright, 1999).. This is the first study to report expression of the uricolytic enzymes in early life stages of a teleost. Recently, Vigetti et al. ...

The supercritical carbon dioxide extraction (SC-CO2) of fish oil was studied using the viscera and skin of African catfish as a raw material and the CO2 as supercritical fluid solvent. A central composite design of response surface methodology (RSM) was employed to optimize the SC-CO2 extraction variables. The response variable (Y) oil yield was executed against the four independent variables namely pressure, temperature, flow rate and the soaking time. The statistical analysis showed, pressure was the most significant linear factor on oil yield. Furthermore, the oil yield was varied with the interaction effects of pressure, temperature and flow rate. Optimum points were obtained within the studied variables range at 65°C temperature, 35 MPa pressure, 2.6 mL/min flow rate and 3.6 h soaking time with maximum oil yield 66.96 and 40.6% from viscera and skin, respectively. The principal fatty acids in terms of concentration were oleic and docosahexaenoic acids respectively. The main objective of ...

An investigation was conducted to identify the allochthonous microbiota (entire intestine) and the autochthonous microbiota in proximal intestine (PI) and distal intestine (DI) of four species of Indian air-breathing fish (climbing perch; Anabas testudineus, murrel; Channa punctatus, walking catfish; Clarias batrachus and stinging catfish; Heteropneustes fossilis) by PCR based denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE). High similarities of the allochthonous microbiota were observed between climbing perch and murrel, walking catfish and stinging catfish, indicating similar food behavior. The autochthonous microbiota of PI and DI from climbing perch and murrel revealed more similarity, than the result obtained from walking catfish and stinging catfish. The autochthonous microbiota of climbing perch and murrel were similar with regard to the allochthonous microbiota, but no such similarity was observed in case of walking catfish and stinging catfish. The fish genotype and intestinal bacteria ...

Introduction. To date, approximately 200 species of piscine trypanosomes are known (Gupta & Gupta 2012). In nature, trypanosome infections are common, especially where the leech vector is abundant. The effect of a trypanosome infection depends solely upon the hosts energy resources, and the impact ranges from physiological (Tandon & Chandra 1977), metabolic, pathological (Lom & Dykova 1984), biochemical (Gupta & Gupta 1986) and asymptomatic, to behavioural anomalies and syndromes (Barber, Hoare & Krause 2000). Haematological techniques are important for the assessment of the impact of trypanosome infections on fish health (Shah & Altindag 2004). Osman, Fadel and Ali (2009) reported that Clarias gariepinus (Burchell, 1822) infected with Trypanosoma mukasai Hoare, 1932 showed significant decreases in total serum protein, albumin, globulin levels, albumin/globulin ratios and cholesterol concentrations. These authors also noted an increase in serum aspartate aminotransferase and alanine ...
The hybrid of channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus) ♀ × blue catfish (Ictalurus furcatus) ♂ (C × B) is the best catfish for pond culture. The current technology, artificial fertilization and handstripping is labor intensive, time consuming, and requires sacrifice of mature 5 ~ 6 year old blue catfish males. Xenogenic catfish produced by transplanting blue catfish stem cell into the gonads of triploid channel catfish could reduce the generation interval to produce blue catfish and might result in channel catfish males that are able to produce blue catfish sperm, and increase the efficiency of C × B hybrid catfish embryo production. Gonadal cell size and type of 90 ~ 100 day - old fry (TL: 5 ~ 6 cm), two - year old juvenile (TL: 25 ~ 30cm) and mature adults (TL: 65 ~ 70 cm) blue catfish was examined. Gonads of all ages of fish contained oogonia (12 ~ 15 μm diameter, distinct nucleus 7 ~ 8 μm) and spermatogonia (12 ~ 15 μm, distinct nucleus 6 ~ 7.5 μm). Male juvenile blue catfish, which ...
Study on biotransformation of �-fatty acid from fish oil was carried out. Pseudomonas aeruginosa has been chosen to be the biocatalyst for biotransformation of w fatty acids extracted from Malaysian catfish, Clarias gariepinus. The lipid from freeze-dried catfish flesh was extracted using a modified Folch method and the mixture of chloroform and methanol was used as a solvent. The crude lipid substrate was added to the bacterial culture and incubated for 4 days. After conversion, the products were analyzed by using gas chromatography and mass spectrometer (GC-MS). The analytical result showed that several fatty acids and cholesterol were found in the product. However, the fatty acids and cholesterol contents before and after biotransformation were different. The cholesterol content increased while �-fatty acid contents decreased after biotransformation process. It can be concluded that the bacterial cells had oxidized the �-fatty acids to yield precursors which can be utilized as starting ...
Castration of the catfish Heteropneustes fossilis for different duration (up to 4 weeks) in the preparatory-prespawning phase resulted in varied effects on plasma testosterone and seminal vesicle (SV) biochemical parameters in a duration-dependent manner. Although plasma testosterone was significantly reduced at all duration of castration in comparison to sham control values, a duration-dependent increase was noticed in the castrates after week 1. SV-somatic index (SVSI) increased significantly and steadily during castration except in week 1. Concentrations of total proteins decreased initially in week 1, and increased subsequently to the sham control level in week 2 and significantly above the sham control values in weeks 3 and 4. Hexosamine concentration was significantly low in weeks 1 and 2, and was restored in weeks 3 and 4. Fructose concentration decreased significantly in weeks 1, 2 and 3, and increased significantly in week 4. In contrast, glucose concentration increased significantly in week 1,

Catfish from Lunsklip Fisheries were fed almost exclusively on untreated waste, rich in polyunsaturated fat, from the trout slaughterhouse on this farm. This waste, consisting largely of fat rich innards, was dumped into the catfish pond where it decomposed until consumed by the fish. These fish showed a high prevalence of pansteatitis as expected under such nutritional conditions, and provided the study with a positive reference population (Table 1). In the Olifants Gorge, analysis of stomach contents showed that catfish fed predominantly on fish as well as insects and small reptiles that had been washed into the river during flood conditions. On the Mozambique border where the Olifants River flows into Lake Massingir and where the sand-bottomed pools and rapids have been inundated with clay deposits, sampled catfish appeared to be feeding off the surface of the clay, and ingesta consisted of algal detritus and clay. In the Sabie River, the Sabiepoort has also been partially inundated with clay ...

Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution - in press. Abstract. Doradidae is a monophyletic catfish family endemic to continental South America, and composed of 93 valid species here placed in 31 genera. Existing phylogenetic hypotheses for Doradidae are derived from comprehensive analyses of morphological data, and a single molecular-based study on a limited subset of taxa. To provide a robust molecular phylogeny commensurate with those based on morphology, we gathered original and published sequence data for 86 species-level taxa (at least 70 valid species plus 16 new or questionably nominal species) and all genera of Doradidae, as well as ten species (9 genera) of Auchenipteridae and three species and genera of Aspredinidae as outgroups. 3011 base pairs were aligned for two mitochondrial genes (cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1, and 16S ribosomal RNA) and one nuclear gene (recombination activating gene 1), and analyzed for a total of 143 specimens (130 doradids, 10 auchenipterids and 3 aspredinids). ...
Discussion. Studies concerning the population structure of fishes are very important because they provide many elucidating answers about species ecology (Agostinho et al., 1994). Several aspects of the life strategy of the species about energy allocation for growth, reproduction or maintenance are interpreted through the analyses of population structure (Benedito-Cecílio & Agostinho, 1997). In the upper Paraná River floodplain, I. labrosus is a benthophagous species (Fugi, 1993; Fugi et al., 1996; Peretti & Andrian, 2004), living close to the bottom. Thus, the largest abundance of I. labrosus found at the Campina site could be associated with the characteristics of that site and with the feeding habit of the species. According to Holzbach et al. (2005), the largest capture of Steindachnerina insculpta, also found at the Campina site, would be related to the presence of the Cantú River mouth which has conditions that support its development, such as vast marginal vegetation, calm and clear ...
Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution - in press. Abstract. The Loricariinae belong to the Neotropical mailed catfish family Loricariidae, the most species-rich catfish family. Among loricariids, members of the Loricariinae are united by a long and flattened caudal peduncle and the absence of an adipose fin. Despite numerous studies of the Loricariidae, there is no comprehensive phylogeny of this morphologically highly diversified subfamily. To fill this gap, we present a molecular phylogeny of this group, including 350 representatives, based on the analysis of mitochondrial and nuclear genes (8426 positions). The resulting phylogeny indicates that Loricariinae are distributed into two sister tribes: Harttiini and Loricariini. The Harttiini tribe, as classically defined, constitutes a paraphyletic assemblage and is here restricted to the three genera Harttia, Cteniloricaria, and Harttiella. Two subtribes are distinguished within Loricariini: Farlowellina and Loricariina. Within Farlowellina, the ...
Citation: Chatakondi, N.G. 2013. Recent improvements in channel x blue hybrid catfish fry production facilitates higher production and adoption in the catfish industry. Aquaculture Conference Proceedings. P. 8. Interpretive Summary: Technical Abstract: Channel catfish, Ictalurus punctatus - a leading aquaculture species in United States for past several years has declining production trends, largely due to higher cost of inputs, inefficiencies in production, and competition from lower-priced imports. With the interest of increasing the efficiency of catfish aquaculture production, channel catfish females have been crossed with blue catfish males to produce a channel x blue hybrid catfish. Hybrid catfish have higher growth rates, survival and processing yield than commonly raised channel catfish. Presently, an increasing number of catfish farmers are raising hybrid catfish in production ponds to harness the superiority of hybrid catfish. Hybrid fry production is a hormone-based synchronization ...

Life is full of risks. Getting the next meal or defending your territory can be hazardous. David McKenzie from the CNRS Montpellier, France, explains that animals gamble with fate for several reasons. Some animals have to place themselves at risk when foraging to satisfy a high metabolic rate, while others are simply bolder: and fish are no exception. McKenzie is also intrigued by air-breathing fish and was puzzled why less than 2% of fish have evolved the ability. Air is a rich source of oxygen but breathing it is risky, so it made me wonder if it might be linked to personality, says McKenzie, explaining that fish that breathe at the surface are vulnerable to predation. Knowing that Brazil is gripped by an invasion of air-breathing African sharptooth catfish (Clarias gariepinus), McKenzie decided to visit his collaborator Tadeu Rantin at the Federal University of São Carlos, Brazil, to find out whether it takes courage for the catfish to breathe air or whether they simply surface to satisfy ...

Bacterial populations in some organs, viz., liver, spleen, kidney, gill, and arborescent organ of the catfish Clarias batrachus were enumerated followed by determination of resistance for antibiotics and metals. The total viable counts in these organs, observed, were 2.24x10(4), 2.08x10(4), 1.44x10(4), 1.23x10(4), and 6.40x10(3) colony-forming units/mL, respectively. The random bacterial isolates from these fish organs showed resistance in decreasing order for colistin (98%), ampicillin (82%), gentamycin (34%), carbenicillin (28%), tetracyline (20%), streptomycin (12%), and ciprofloxacin (02%). Most of the isolates exhibited an increasing order of tolerance for the metals (microg/mL) copper (100), lead (200), manganese (400), cadmium (200), and chromium (50), with minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) ranging from |50 to 1600 microg/mL. These observations indicate that the significant occurrence of bacterial population in organs of fish with high incidence of resistance for antibiotics and metals may

Data on 10 measural and 5 meristic characters in 5 samples of Clarias were compared for a total of 125 individuals, and the systematic relationships among species or populations were analysed using principal component analysis and discriminant function analysis. Multivariate statistics between species resulted in a 100% correct classification with apparent morphological gaps, and between two population of C. fuscus was 93.5% good classification with no gaps. Multivariate comparisions of body form among species, supported by biochemical results, indicate that 5 samples of Clorias can be grouped into three species, namely, C.fuscus, C.batrachus and C.lazera, and the first two can be found in China. The best character for classifying the three species was gill raker. It is considered that discriminant function analysis and principal component analysis can be used to classify the morphologically close related species such as C.fuscus and C. batrachus.
Abstract -The size structure of a predator population can cause differences in the relative survival of different prey length classes whereby the biggest prey may reach a safe size because of the size-dependent character of predation. In the present study, the diet of European catfish was investigated to examine if catfish feeding can prevent cyprinids from reaching such a size refuge. In the lake studied, catfish was stocked for biomanipulation purposes to reduce unwanted roach and bream populations. Crayfish and roach were the most important prey items of catfish. If only species composition in the diet was considered, no clear changes were recorded in relation to catfish size. However, the length of roach as prey significantly increased with catfish length. Catfish were significantly larger than the other piscivorous fish in the lake, but took relatively smaller roach in comparison with similar-sized pike or pikeperch. Nevertheless, because of the high mean length of catfish, roach cannot ...
The 2008 Farm Bill mandated the creation of such a program, to be administered by USDAs Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), which was supposed to be implemented by December 2009, reports Food and Water Watch.. "In 2013, Americans consumed more than 305 million pounds of catfish, 78 per cent of which was imported, mostly from Viet Nam," said Food & Water Watch Executive Director Wenonah Hauter.. "Americans want to be sure that the catfish they eat and feed their families is safe, yet bowing to pressure from importers and other nations, the Obama administration continues to hold up the implementation of this important rule. Enough is enough.". The Food and Drug Administration currently regulates catfish. Domestic catfish processors are subject to FDA inspections once every five to 10 years and only two percent of imported catfish gets inspected.. The new inspection program would subject domestic catfish processors to daily USDA inspection, and imported catfish, much of which is raised in ...

Title: Physical map construction and physical characterization of channel catfish genome. Name: Xu, Peng. Degree: PhD. Chair: Zhanjiang Liu. Resides: FAA Library. University: Auburn. Location: Auburn, Alabama. Date: 2007. Pages: 111. Keywords: channel catfish genome, gene mapping, genetics. Abstract: Catfish is the major aquaculture species in the United States. To enhance genome studies involving linkage mapping, comparative mapping and linkage map and physical map integration, over 20,000 Bacterial Artificial Chromosome (BAC) end sequences were generated and a BAC-based physical map of the channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus Rafinesque) genome was constructed using four color fluorescence-based fingerprinting. A total of 25,195 BAC ends were sequenced, generating 20,366 clean BAC end sequences (BES) with an average reading length of 557 bp. The total reading length of 11,414,601 bp represented approximately 1.2% of the catfish genome. Based on this survey, the catfish genome was found to be ...
Discussion. The confident assertion of internal features as phylogenetically informative characters for Trichomycterus has as major impediment the lack of pertinent information in the vast majority of its constituting species. However in those species whose anatomy has been studied in some detail - e.g.,Trichomycterus boylei Nichols, 1956, T. duellmani and T. roigi Arratia & Menu-Marque, 1984 in Arratia & Menu-Marque, 1984; T. areolatus Valenciennes, 1846, T. nigricansValenciennes, 1832 (type-species of the genus), T. punctulatusValenciennes, 1846 and T. rivulatus Valenciennes, 1846 (also asT. gracilis Valenciennes, 1846) in Arratia, 1998; T. guianensis (Eigenmann, 1909) and T. punctulatus in Adriaenset al., 2010; T. candidus (Miranda Ribeiro, 1949) in Barbosa & Costa, 2003b; and T. potschi Barbosa & Costa, 2003, T. celsae and T. lewi Lasso & Provenzano, 2003,T. maracaya Bockmann & Sazima, 2004, T. diabolus Bockmann, Casatti & de Pinna, 2004,T. pradensis Sarmento-Soares, Martins-Pinheiro, Aranda ...

I took apart my necklace and restrung it into two necklaces one for me and one for Squeaker. I have had some success with my necklace helping my Fibromyalgia, so I wasnt ready to give it up entirely. After Squeaker feel asleep I put the necklace on her and gave her the medicine. The night was great. A year of nights like that and by golly we both might feel rested. :) What took me by surprise was the next day. Squeaker was happy, awake, and calm. Now I know some of that comes from a good nights sleep but this is better than I seen her behave in probably a month. About lunch time Squeaker took of her necklace and put it aside. But still remained a happy girl, who wanted to eat. Not just soft foods what ever she wanted and no crying about it. Oh and by the way we had not given her ANY pain killers. By nap time Squeaker was still feeling so good she didnt want to sleep. Im sure most parents would say just let her skip nap, yeah not happening here.

A linear epitope on catfish IgM has been defined as the docking site for the catfish soluble FcR (IpFcRI). trout (Ig), poultry (Ig), mouse (Ig, Ig1, Ig2a, Ig2b, and Ig), rabbit (Ig and Ig) and goat (Ig) IgH stores, and mouse Ig and Ig, and poultry Ig IgL stores. IpFcRI destined mouse IgM also, IgG and IgA subclasses when examined less than local circumstances. (Shen et al., 2004; Shen et al., 2003), which demonstrated that catfish NK-like cells had been equipped with IgM and had been positive for just two Ig light (L) string isotypes. Since these cells didnt communicate message for either Ig weighty (H) or IgL stores, it had been hypothesized that serum IgM can be bound on the surface with a putative FcR. Furthermore, when the top bound IgM was replaced by catfish anti-trinitrol-phenol (TNP) IgM antibodies, these specifically armed NK cells were able to kill TNP-labeled target cells by ADCC (Shen et al., 2003). More recently, we identified a catfish FcR homolog, termed IpFcRI, which represents ...

The body shape of Synodontis polli is described as being compressed. The head is also described as being compressed and the body is described as being naked. The mouth is described as being inferior with wide lips (from the original description of Synodontis eurystomus which means wide mouth). It is documented that this catfish has 40-70 mandibular teeth which are described as being short, uncuspid and arranged in 6-8 short transverse rows. It has three pairs of barbels which are described as being short, with the maxillary barbels having a small membrane at the base. The mandibular barbels have slender ramifications. Synodontis polli is described as having a cusp on the dorsal edge of the humeral process. The dorsal fin is described as having 7 soft rays. The pectoral fin is described as having 8-9 soft rays. The caudal fin is described as being forked with rounded lobes. ...
The effect of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) against the burden of low pH was assessed in silver catfish Rhamdia quelen through the gills. A commercial humic acid (HA) was used as the source of DOC at 0 (control), 10, 25, and 50 mg/l. For each HA concentration, two pH levels were tested: 6.5 (control) and 5.5. After 40 days of exposure, the gills were removed and morphological variables were analyzed through light and scanning electronic microscopy. The low water pH caused a reduction in the length of filaments, number of lamellae, and gill respiratory surface area (GRSA) and an increase in chloride cells (CCs) number in the filament epithelium ...
Inland Aquaculture Inland freshwater fisheries are important in less arid areas such as the Caprivi and Okavango regions in the North East and the Omusati, Kunene and Oshana regions in the North West . Commercial freshwater aquaculture of tilapia ( Oreochromis andersonii) and catfish ( Clarias gariepinus) is currently undertaken at all aquaculture establishments throughout the country.. About 50% of the rural population live in the northern regions and derive food, income and informal employment from inland fish resources. Inland aquaculture includes on-land facilities and utilizes ponds, tanks, and enclosures that are dependent upon the culturists for maintenance of water quality, food supply, and waste removal.. ...

Years in the making, the USDAs new inspection rule for catfish and other Siluriformes is already caught up in a lot of controversy. The rule, which becomes effective in March 2016, applies to both domestically-raised and imported Siluriformes. It was mandated by the 2014 Farm Bill. Up until now, catfish, and other Siluriformes, were regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which regulates all food products accept meat, poultry and some egg products. The new U.S. Department of Agricultures Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA-FSIS) rule marks the beginning of an 18-month transition for oversight of the fish. The fish will now be regulated under the United States Department of Agriculture. "FSIS is committed to a smooth and gradual introduction to the new … [Read more...] ...
The present study was undertaken to evaluate the influence of butachlor, a widely used herbicide, on antioxidant enzyme system and lipid peroxidation formation in African cat fish (Clarias gariepinus). Fish were exposed to sub-lethal concentrations of butachlor 1, 2, 2.5 ppm and sacrificed 24hrs after treatment. A significant increase in malondialdehyde formation was observed in the liver, kidney, gills and heart of the fish following exposure to different concentrations of butachlor. Superoxide dismutase and catalase activities increased in the liver and kidney but decreased in the gills and heart in a concentration-dependent pattern. Glutathione level and glutathione-Stransferase activities increased (P
Levels of Zn, Cu, Cd, As, and Pb in the kidney, Liver, Gills and Heart of African cat fish (Clarias gariepinus) from the Ogun River in Ogun State located close to six major industries in the South Western part of Nigeria, were determined using Bulk Scientific Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer. Fishes were also collected from Government owned fish farm in Agodi, Ibadan which was considered a reference site. The activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), glutathione S-transferase (GST), glutathione (GSH) concentration and malondialdehyde (MDA) formation were also determined. The trend of accumulation of the metals in the organs is as follows: Heart - Zn | Cu | Pb | As | Cd; Gills - Zn | Cu | Pb | Cd | As; Kidney - Zn | Cu | Pb | As | Cd; Liver -Zn | Cu | Pb | As | Cd. The order of concentration of the metals in the organs is as follows: Arsenite - Kidney | Liver | Gills | Heart; Zinc - Gills | Liver | Kidney | Heart; Lead- Liver | Kidney | Gills | Heart; Copper- Kidney | Liver | Gills |

Your Corydoras is looking huge and has visible small red lines on her body. Is she ripe with eggs? Dr Michael Hardman advises. It sounds like your Bronze cory is indeed mature and ripe with eggs. The small red lines are probably blood vessels that serve the ripened ovaries. The vessels become visible as the ovaries swell and press against the body wall - so theres nothing to worry about there. In most tropical fishes, an increase in temperature causes the ovaries to develop and the eggs to ripen. Usually, a second cue is needed to release the eggs (ovulation). The classical cue is a 30-50% freshwater change using dechlorinated water a few degrees cooler than the aquarium. Provided you have two or three mature males per female, a day or two following the water change you should eventually see some eggs. If your corys spawn and you want to raise the babies, get a breeding net. Once spawning is complete, carefully roll the eggs off the glass or plants and into the net and add an anti-fungal agent. ...

I cannot tell what is wrong with my corydoras if there is even anything wrong at all. Many of my cories have bloodied tail fins with sections which appear to have been torn off. Some are missing barbarels, and one has a reddened mouth as well. One of my corys was swimming really odd last week, so I treated it for parasites and it stopped swimming like that, but its still really bloody. One of my older female corys was also laying on her side a few minutes ago, and I removed her for possible

S04-690, from the Mississippi fish, also was found to be in the same group, related to both the U.S. catfish and Asian carp bacteria. However, it was genetically distinct from the other two strains. By contrast, A. hydrophila strains that do not cause epidemics are more heterogeneous.. Additional experiments found that isolated bacteria from diseased catfish in America and diseased carp in China shared alternate forms of 10 key housekeeping genes required for basic cellular function.. Its not clear how the bacterium was introduced in America, Liles says. It could be from importing Asian carp to America for aquatic weed control, or from transporting ornamental fish or contaminated processed seafood products from Asia. The spread of disease among farms also is not fully understood but could result from birds that move from pond to pond eating catfish, or from harvesting equipment that may be insufficiently sanitized between uses.. Liles and other researchers are investigating means to control ...
Fingerling purchases must be made very carefully. This issue should be given special attention since starting with poor quality fingerlings will be problematic even with the best management thereafter. Fingerling management before purchase should be investigated since nutrition and stocking densities are important to the future health of the catfish. Deliveries of catfish fingerlings should be checked for signs of disease on arrival. Proper treatments should be administered or the fish returned to the source for treatment if disease is discovered. Stocking the fingerling at the right time is important. Hot weather and ESC seasons should be avoided. If the fingerlings are stocked at a time when they will not quickly respond to feeding, diseases may strike the fish as they become nutritionally weakened. Stocking densities of 5,000 to 10,000 catfish fingerlings per acre are used in the industry, but the lower stocking densities are less likely to result in disease experiences.. ...

If the trailers and advertisements are to be believed for Catfish, the film is another low budget entry into cinema history that includes Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity. The trailers are filled with suspense and intrigue that make no sense once you see the film. The marketing for the film sells it as a true story thriller, in which we should fear for the protagonists lives.. So, what is Catfish?. Catfish is a supposedly true story that follows 24-year-old photographer, Nev Schulman. The story initially starts out when Nev receives a painting of a photograph of his that appeared in the paper. The recreation is supposedly created by 8-year-old artist, Abby, who resides in Michigan with her family. Nev and Abby begin communicating, and quickly become penpals. After a while Nev starts befriending the rest of the family through Facebook. The social networking gets him close with mother, Angela, and 19-year-old sister Megan.. Nev quickly becomes smitten with the older sister. I mean, ...
On to the good stuff…. Middendorfs is the Mecca of fried Catfish, specifically, thin fried catfish. Understand, Ive been reading about this place for years and years, well before the current owners took the reins, so there is cause for concern about building a pyramid up in ones mind. At the deck at Middendorfs you order at the bar and pickup at the bar (although everything was delivered to me, along with smiles and nice conversation.) The beers available are generic, miller lite, bud, corona, etc.., no Abita, no fancyfied beers, which tells me this place is all local, love it!. I ordered the thin fried catfish, which is the legendary house specialty, and I also read great things about Middendorfs Barbecued Oysters, so I ordered them as an appetizer with a cup of Turtle Soup. I expected the Barbecue Oysters to be along the lines of Barbecue Shrimp, but they were totally different, in a good way, more along the lines of an Oysters Roffignac.

Once again Friday rain dumped a lot of freshwater in our area. But that does not seem to be hurting anglers fishing the freshwater lakes and ponds. Even with the water levels high and stained, the fish are biting.. Bass and panfish are one of the top bites and easy to catch. Speckled perch seemed to be scattered last week. Fishing for them around structures was more hunt than catch. Anglers fishing with spider rigs were catching more while trolling.. The best bite last week was catfish. Florida seems to have a multitude of catfish. The most common are channel cats, blue cats, white cats, flathead cats and bullhead cats. Plus a few that might just be fish stories, like the speckled catfish only caught in the St. Johns River.

First lay the fish in your hand with its head toward your palm and the tail toward your fingers. Hold the dorsal spine between your middle and ring finger so the fish is belly up and you wont get punctured by the sharp fin spines (which hurts - be careful). The genital pore is in a small furrow of tissue (in healthy fish) and will be obstructed by the pelvic fins. Pull down on the tail gently to arch the fishes spine and the pelvic fins will stand and the furrow open to display the genital pore and the anus of the fish. The male has a somewhat ridged genital papillae on which the spermatoduct is on the back side, facing the tail fin. A gravid female will also show an extended papillae but the oviduct is on the ventral side of the papillae. It may also show a little redness if really gravid. A thin or emaciated female will have just two pink pores, the oviduct and the anus ...

Before our cat, Rocky, the red hot rocker was ruthlessly run down at the end of our drive...he was a lean mean killin machine. Rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, birds, frogs, bugs; if it moved Rocky got it. The day he got the rabbit my black and white cat was black and pink (from rabbit blood). He also got really really sick and we almost lost him. I think that episode used up his last life cause he didnt stand a chance against the car that got him.

canola or peanut oil as needed for pan frying. Method. Salt and pepper both sides of catfish fillets well. Dredge 2 fillets in flour on both sides, shaking to remove excess.. Pour oil into wide, heavy-bottomed skillet to depth of 1/2 inch. Heat on medium heat. Dip in egg, coating well on both sides, then lay on panko on plate, scooping crumbs and patting onto egg-coated fish to coat well. Lay fillets side by side in the pan, and cook without turning until you see the breadcrumbs on the edges of the fish begin to turn golden. Then, with a wide, long spatula, turn each fillet. The formerly bottom side should be golden brown and quite crisp. When fish is crisp on the other side, remove from pan, drain on paper towels and keep warm. Repeat with other two fillets, and serve immediately. ...

Channel Catfish are widely distributed across North America and highly valued as a sport fish and for food. While most Channel Catfish fisheries are managed under liberal harvest regulations, the Red River of the North (Red River) in Manitoba, Canada is managed with restrictive harvest regulations to promote a trophy fishery. Two barriers (dams) are present on the main stem of the Red River and may fragment the population to some degree. My objectives were to: 1) analyze population dynamics of the trophy Channel Catfish population on the lower Red River, 2) compare population characteristics of Channel Catfish in selected reaches throughout the Red River in Manitoba, and 3) determine movement characteristics of Channel Catfish and the permeability of a dam on the lower Red River. We compared our results to the most recent studies on Channel Catfish in the Red River, and also to range-wide age, growth, and mortality statistics. Channel Catfish in the lower Red River commonly reached ages | 20, grew
Immunoglobulin light (IGL) chain genes encoding sigma and lambda from channel catfish, Ictalurus punctatus, and lambda from Atlantic cod, Gadus morhua, were identified by mining of expressed sequence tag databases, 5-RACE and RT-PCR protocols. cDNAs for each of these IGL chains encode typical variable (V), joining (J), and constant (C) regions and Southern blot analyses and genomic sequencing show that genes encoding these isotypes, like other teleost IGL genes, are found in a cluster organization of one or two V gene segments, followed by single J and C gene segments, all in the same transcriptional orientation. However, unlike the teleost kappa genes, genes encoding catfish sigma and lambda are few in number and the two isotypes are each encoded by only two clusters. Similarly, Atlantic cod lambda genes are predicted to be encoded by two or three clusters. As expected, sequence and phylogenetic analyses comparisons demonstrate that catfish V sigma and C sigma genes are most similar to V sigma ...
The fumonisins represent a group of mycotoxins produced predominantly by Fusarium moniliforme species. The toxic effects in fish remains still poorly understood. In one study, channel catfish fed F. moniliforme culture material containing 313 ppm of fumonisin B1 (FB1) for 5 weeks revealed minimal adverse effects27. Conversely, another study28 reported that dietary levels of FB1 of 20 ppm or above are toxic to year-1 and year-2 channel catfish. After 10 and 14 weeks, respectively, year-1 and year-2 catfish fed 20 ppm or more of FB1 in the diet had lower weight gain compared to the control, and those fish fed diets with levels of 80 ppm and above showed significantly lower hematocrits and red and white blood cells than those fed lower doses29. In 2000 it was found that in channel catfish, diets containing 20 ppm of moniliformin (MON) or FB1 significantly reduced body weight gain after 2 weeks30, where FB1 is more toxic than MON to channel catfish. Adverse effects of fumonisin contaminated diets ...

Hoplosternum littorale is a species of catfish (order Siluriformes) belonging to the Callichthyinae subfamily of the family Callichthyidae. It is known as tamuatá in Brazil, atipa in French Guiana, hassar in Guyana, kwi kwi (or kwie kwie [1]) in Suriname, cascadu(ra) in Trinidad and Tobago, and busco or currito in Venezuela. H. littorale is armor-plated and dorso-ventrally compressed. The fish will grow in length up to 24.0 centimetres (9.4 in) TL. Males grow to a larger average and maximum size than females and, during the reproductive season, develop fat deposits in the pectoral fin and an elongated recurved pectoral spine that often assumes a reddish colour. Males with recurved pectoral spines are not found outside of the reproductive period. H. littorale has the widest distribution of any callichthyid. It is present in all of South America east of the Andes and north of Buenos Aires, including the Orinoco, Trinidad, coastal rivers of the Guianas, Amazon River drainage, Paraguay, lower ...

Title: Molecular characterization of Edwardsiella spp. and Flavobacterium columnare. Name: Zhang, Yinfeng. Degree: PhD. Chair: Covadonga Aries. Resides: FAA Library. University: Auburn. Location: Auburn, Alabama. Date: 2007. Pages: 144. Keywords: edwardsiella, flavobacterium, bacteria, fish disease, molecular. Abstract: Bacterial diseases are responsible for large economic losses in aquaculture around the world. Flavobacterium columnare and Edwardsiella spp. negatively impact the channel catfish industry in southern USA. However, limited biological information is available for F. columnare and Edwardsiella ictaluri, which has hampered the development of accurate detection methods. In addition, the mechanisms of virulence of these pathogens are poorly understood which has prevented us to propose effective control/treatment methods for them. In the present study, new signature sequences for these pathogens were identified and evaluated as target candidates in PCR-based approaches. Unfortunately, ...

Both lab and on-farm feeding trial research, funded by the Illinois soybean checkoff, show species like hybrid striped bass and largemouth bass can effectively digest higher amounts of soybean meal when blended with meal derived from Asian carp.. "The research may solve several challenges for Midwestern fisheries and the aquaculture industry," says Jesse Trushenski, associate professor at SIUs Center for Fisheries Aquaculture and Aquatic Sciences in Carbondale, Ill. "The fish diets we studied use meal from Asian carp, an invasive fish that is spreading and disrupting ecosystems in the Mississippi River Basin. Blending carp meal and soybean meal allowed us to use larger amounts of soybean meal. And, these diets offer a local alternative to marine-based fish meal.". Aquaculture, an expanding, protein-hungry industry, needs to develop alternate feed sources, according to Trushenski. The growing scarcity of wild anchovies and sardines increases the costs of marine-based fish meal and impacts ocean ...

In the late 1900s Phengaris populations began decreasing drastically throughout Europe with the large blue butterfly being particularly affected. By the 1950s only an estimated 100,000 adults remained in Britain, and by 1978 48% of the UK's 91 known large blue populations had been lost.[11][12] Initially experts were completely baffled by the disappearance of large blues as the sites did not appear to have changed.[11] Leading hypotheses targeted collectors, insecticides, and air pollution as factors that led to the butterfly extinction.[12] A large number of projects were conducted to combat these factors, but all were completely unsuccessful.[12] The species became extinct in the Netherlands in 1964, in the UK in 1979 and also in Belgium in 1996.[7] Severe decreases in population have also occurred in Denmark, Germany, France, and Estonia.[7] Because of this decline they are being protected. A good example of this is the UNESCO Ordesa Valley in Aragon, Spain, where the butterfly's community is ...

Social behaviors of cowbird males include aggressive, competitive singing bouts with other males and pair-bonding and monogamy with females.. By manipulating demographics so juveniles only had access to females, juvenile males developed atypical social behavior; they did not engage in the typical social singing bouts with other males, did not pair bond with females, and were promiscuous. This demonstrates that there is great flexibility in the behavior of cowbirds, and that the social environment is extremely important in structuring their behavior. Adult males housed with juvenile males were shown to have greater reproductive success compared to adult males housed with other adult males. Being housed with juvenile males honed the reproductive skills of the adult males by providing them with a more complex social environment.. This finding was further studied by comparing the behaviors and reproductive success of males exposed to a dynamic flock, consisting of changing individuals, with males ...

The naked, altricial chick hatches after 11-13 days.[2] It methodically evicts all host progeny from host nests. It is a much larger bird than its hosts, and needs to monopolize the food supplied by the parents. The chick will roll the other eggs out of the nest by pushing them with its back over the edge. If the host's eggs hatch before the cuckoo's, the cuckoo chick will push the other chicks out of the nest in a similar way. At 14 days old, the common cuckoo chick is about three times the size of an adult Eurasian reed warbler. The necessity of eviction behavior is unclear. One hypothesis is that competing with host chicks leads to decreased cuckoo chick weight, which is selective pressure for eviction behavior. An analysis of the amount of food provided to common cuckoo chicks by host parents in the presence and absence of host siblings showed that when competing against host siblings, cuckoo chicks did not receive enough food, showing an inability to compete.[29] Selection pressure for ...
Many butterflies are polymorphic. P. rebeli caterpillars are polymorphic, having two strategies for living and growing underground: to exist as fast-developing larvae (FDL) or slow-developing larvae (SDL). After the ant brood adopts the FDL, which comprise approximately 25% of the total P. rebeli larvae,[23] the FDL complete growth the following spring and eclose (emerge as an adult from the pupa) in early summer to complete their life cycle.[24] The SDL, which comprise 75% of P. rebeli larvae, do not grow much during the first year, but grow rapidly during the early part of the second summer and remain a second winter within the ant colonies.[24] While both larva types ultimately form similar-sized pupae, their polymorphic growth rates could indicate alternative fitness strategies and different ways to exploit the M. schencki's food resources.[24] Other researchers hypothesize that another alternative growth strategy will evolve in the P. rebeli, in which the P. rebeli will parasitize the M. ...
