In combination with the availability of coastal areas with favorable environmental and labor conditions, Brazil’s affluent market for seafood could support expansion of a niche aquaculture sector: boutique farming.
In a study of juvenile cobia diets, results suggested that lipid sources with high levels of saturated fatty acids and low polyunsaturated fatty acids can replace a large percentage of fish oil in feeds if they are amended with DHA.
A unique pilot project supported by northern Chile’s biggest power-generating company and the Undersecretary of Fisheries and Aquaculture is raising cobia in a recirculating aquaculture system in the desert.
Scientists have been working to understand cobia’s nutritional requirements and advance the economic and environmental sustainability of feeding carnivorous fish using fishmeal alternatives.
The establishment of land-based recirculating systems for cobia could expand production of the species. The authors, who demonstrated cobia are well suited for culture in tanks, conducted a study to compare the performance of cobia reared at different densities.
A project of the Soy-in-Aquaculture program evaluated the feasibility of using soy protein concentrate and soybean meal to replace fishmeal in cobia diets.
Expansion of the Bribie Island Research Centre allows agencies to tackle multidisciplinary research tasks to help the Australian aquaculture industry.
Fingerling production has long been a bottleneck in the advancement of cobia culture. A coalition has validated intensive larviculture production systems and protocols that deliver 35 percent survival.
Cobia is a top emerging candidate for tropical and subtropical marine fish aquaculture. The University of Miami Experimental Hatchery has led ongoing research to advance the viability of raising hatchery-reared cobia.
