Study evaluates three genera of local polychaetes as potential live feeds for shrimp broodstock in maturation units in Ecuador.
A research project aimed at improving shrimp hatcheries’ welfare practices shows there is a viable alternative to a common spawn-inducing technique.
Aquaculture of high-value white sturgeon is in its early phases in British Columbia, Canada. Given the long time required to produce caviar, licensed producers are looking at developing markets for value-added products and byproducts based on sturgeon meat.
A National Broodstock Improvement Network for aquaculture could help to break the link between inbreeding and hatchery size.
Biosecurity can be defined as the operating procedures that shrimp hatchery and farm personnel use to minimize the impacts of disease on their animals. Proper biosecurity measures slow the movement of pathogens and protect unaffected areas.
The project produces specific-pathogen-free broodstock with good reproductive performance, fast growth and high survival. More than 60 hatcheries in India have received broodstock from the program.
There is a clear difference between the shrimp postlarvae traits that are economically important in Central and South America versus those of Asia, creating a challenge for breeders to satisfy the somewhat opposing breeding goals the regions demand.
Giant clams are a resource utilized by the food and aquarium trade markets. However, aquaculture production is low and does not supply the demand. Ready availability of broodstock and seed is a major problem, as well as practical and consistent
The domestication of green tiger shrimp (Penaeus semisulcatus) as a source for seedstock could help expand aquaculture in Egypt. Trials by the authors compared the reproductive performance of wild male/wild female pairings with that of pond-reared male/pond-reared female and wild
