Production of cobia (Rachycentron canadum) is growing rapidly in Asia, yet fingerling production predominantly occurs in extensive pond environments.
In the ongoing challenge of developing larval feeds for aquaculture, thraustochytrids – nonphotosynthetic, heterotrophic marine organisms – have potential as a source of fatty acids.
Authors carried out a series of studies on polyploid induction in fleshy shrimp, one of the most important commercial shrimp species in China.
Broodstock selection programs for Atlantic halibut identify top first-generation performers to develop a strain best suited to aquaculture conditions.
Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution researchers have developed marine fish culture methods on an experimental to pilot scale.
Research at the Achotines Laboratory on the southern tip of the Azuero Peninsula of Panama centers on larval tuna biology.
The authors recently evaluated the physical deterioration of first-feeding California halibut larvae using morphometric and histological criteria.
Domestication and genetic improvement of the Kuruma prawn (Penaeus japonicus) have been relatively slow due to availability of broodstock and postlarvae.
The objective is to demonstrate that cobia can be successfully raised in the Bahamas using advanced offshore technology with low impact and high yield.
Proper nutrition is crucial to maintain growth and health in farmed fish. A variety of dietary factors and nutritional strategies can be influential.
