Although U.S. hatcheries aid stocking programs, paddlefish culture has not been commercialized. Russia and China raise the fish for meat and caviar.
Even with dedicated aerators, aquaculture farms can experience stress and mortality in culture animals due to low dissolved oxygen concentrations in pond water. Simple tractor-powered aerators offer a quick and portable solution to low dissolved oxygen levels that provides strong
Translocated shrimp have the potential to carry pathogens to new areas. Shrimp have a tendency to carry persistent infections without showing signs of disease.
Research at the Conservation Fund’s Freshwater Institute is evaluating a prototype percussive stunning system for slaughtering food-size rainbow trout.
In a study, Senegal sole larvae had better survival when fed an initial diet of enriched rotifers with algae, rather than artemia alone.
The varied partners in the NorthCod project aim to improve cod broodstock management and production practices in northern Europe.
The black spots of melanosis quickly arise in harvested shrimp from enzymatic reactions in shrimp tissue or external stressors.
Advances in equipment design keep pace to provide uniform, controlled cooking temperatures that allow more precise bacteria lethality with higher yields.
In grinding aquaculture feed to proper particle sizes, parameters of consideration include particle size distribution and pellet density.
Underfeeding can slow growth rates and overfeeding adversely affects water quality so it is critical to adjust feeding rates to meet actual demands of shrimp.
