Loop mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) is a highly specific technique that can amplify DNA in isothermal conditions. The kit can amplify the target gene of the pathogen using a single temperature and give results in one hour.
Sandfish, a high-value sea cucumber, supports the aquaculture of other fish species by cleaning up waste on the bottoms of ponds or sea cages.
A low-volume, high-density culture technology developed through the Soy-In-Aquaculture Program helped show farmers that extruded floating feeds can be used in the cage culture of high-value marine fish.
Compliance with E.U. food laws was beneficial to aquaculture in the Philippines, but increased costs also initially created inequities for small farmers.
The Soy-In-Aquaculture project in the Philippines has introduced low-volume, high-density cage culture production methodology for use with high-value marine species. The technology was developed to maximize farmers’ profits, improve productivity, reduce feed-conversion ratios and limit environmental degradation.
