Variability in the quantity and quality of larval yields limit aquaculture growth. New biotechnological advances promise to revolutionize the way we assess and solve bottlenecks. A study demonstrated the use of metabolomics to assess and classify mollusk larvae quality and
With limited space and carrying capacities available in inshore areas, aquaculture operations are looking into offshore longline mussel aquaculture. In New England, USA, researchers are striving to increase production efficiency and perfect techniques related to mussel socking and eradication of
The authors conducted research to improve the uptake of mussel seed in artificial collectors and optimize the amount of seed used in mussel farming.
While Chile’s mussel industry has entered a growth phase, challenges remain, especially in the seed production and grow-out components. This contrasts with the well-developed nature of the country’s processing plants and marketing outlets.
Microbiological, biochemical and sensory analyses have concluded that rapid cooling with ice slurry achieves good quality and yield for many fish species.
Turkey has many kilometers of coastline, but shellfish culture is developing slowly in the country. Only two bivalve farms producing mussels presently operate there. Mussel spat is collected naturally on the long line systems.
