Jurassic Salmon, established in Poland just two years ago, is using 150-million-year-old geothermal saline waters from the “Lower Jura” era. Armed with certifications, the company is navigating an awkward growth stage.
A novel blend of organic acids (OAB) microencapsulated in a lipid matrix and supplemented in the diets of Litopenaeus vannamei enhanced their growth, phosphorus utilization, resistance to Vibrio harveyi and immunity. This may have implications as an eco-friendly prophylactic strategy.
A study evaluated the effects of two organic acid blends on performance, gut health and disease resistance in olive flounder. The dietary organic acids were effective in lowering total gut bacterial counts, gut Vibrio counts and in conferring resistance against
At higher stocking densities, the application of all feed via feed trays often results in feed being dropped outside and/or underneath the trays.
With relatively low use of land and water, intensive aquaculture systems can support much higher production than extensive systems.
Microminerals participate in a variety of biochemical processes and must be supplied in prepared diets to support optimal growth and production efficiency.
Animal manures, grasses and other organic matter have been widely used as fertilizers in aquaculture ponds. The fertilizers decompose and release nutrients that promote the growth of phytoplankton and enhance the base of the food web.
Expansion of the India Organic Aquaculture Project is leading to organic freshwater prawn culture according to standards developed by Naturland Germany and Indocert.
