Global aquaculture, particularly farmed shrimp, depends on artemia for hatchery feeds. Supplies meet current needs, but growth will require alternatives.
A look at trends in various segments of the shrimp production supply chain in India – hatcheries, farms, feeds and exports – amid COVID-19 restrictions.
This study evaluated through in vitro analyses the antimicrobial effectiveness of natural products used for P. vannamei bacterial diseases and antibiotics against pathogenic Vibrio strains circulating in Ecuadorian hatcheries.
A research project aimed at improving shrimp hatcheries’ welfare practices shows there is a viable alternative to a common spawn-inducing technique.
Shrimp hatcheries are highly dependent on continuous availability of clean water and proper treatment of effluents using sedimentation and biofiltration.
In this third and final part, authors present recommendations to help reduce the incidence of Zoea-2 Syndrome, which is not caused by any known infectious agents in P. vannamei hatcheries in India.
Indian shrimp hatcheries have experienced larval mortality in the zoea-2 stage, with molt deterioration and resulting in heavy mortality. Authors considered biotic and abiotic factors. Part 2 describes results of their study.
Canada and the United States may be friendly neighbors, but when it comes to aquaculture, the bordering countries take vastly different approaches to aquaculture in the Great Lakes.
University of New England Professor Barry Costa-Pierce says aquaculture is often neglected in studies examining ocean health and ecosystem and resource management. The “Ocean Prosperity Roadmap” released this summer, he said, was more of the same.
