  • Use of sea water and hydraulic conditions. Potential cause of Mortality by Metals and Hydrogen Sulfide in Recirculation Fisheries

    The traditional conception in Chile of the toxic effect of metals on cultured fish tends to weigh heavily on incoming freshwater in open flow fish farms as the major responsible for mortality in early stages of development in salmon species. This approach is mainly based on two conditions that refer to freshwater quality in Chile, and to the dilutive effect of recirculation fish stocks when a ...

  • Modern Project on Establishment of Fish Feed Production Plant

    Fish Feed Plant Background & Necessity Along with the development of aquaculture, aquafeed industry has also made a quite fast progress, especially in virtue of continue advancement of breeding technology, the culturing mode has turned into intensive cultivation from extensive fish farming, which provides vast space for fish feed production. In line with the FAO (Food and Agriculture ...

  • In the fishing industry, gear recycling is finally catching on

    In 2013, Joel Baziuk had a problem. He had too many fishing nets, and no good way to get rid of them. But that was about to change. As operations supervisor of Steveston Harbour Authority, or SHA, just south of Vancouver, British Columbia, Baziuk is responsible for Canada’s largest commercial fishing harbor. At any given time, more than 400 vessels call ...

  • Sustainable Aquaculture in Earthen Ponds - Case Study

    As aquaculture becomes more popular and sophisticated, many companies are offering exciting new technologies that require major infrastructure investment. But what about existing local fish farms – how can fish farmers keep up with developments without going into debt? The majority of land-based aquaculture centers around the world use earthen ponds. This traditional extensive farming ...

  • Global transcriptomic profiling in barramundi Lates calcarcifer from rivers impacted by differing agricultural land‐uses

    Most catchments discharging into the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) lagoon have elevated loads of suspended sediment, nutrients, and pesticides, including photosystem II inhibiting herbicides, associated with upstream agricultural land use. To investigate potential impacts of declining water quality on fish physiology, RNASeq was used to characterize and compare the hepatic transcriptomes of ...

  • Model of an aquaponic system for minimised water, energy and nitrogen requirements

    Water and nutrient savings can be established by coupling water streams between interacting processes. Wastewater from production processes contains nutrients like nitrogen (N), which can and should be recycled in order to meet future regulatory discharge demands. Optimisation of interacting water systems is a complex task. An effective way of understanding, analysing and optimising such ...

  • Mummichog (Fundulus heteroclitus) continue to successfully produce eggs after exposure to high levels of 17Α‐ethinylestradiol

    17α‐Ethinylestradiol (EE2) is a potent estrogen used in birth‐control pills. Previous laboratory and field studies have shown negative impacts in a variety of fish species after exposure to low levels of EE2, most notably a nearly complete shutdown of egg production. The present study demonstrates that mummichog (Fundulus heteroclitus), a small‐bodied estuarine species, is able to continue to ...

  • Salmon aquaculture could incorporate seaweed and sea urchins to reduce nitrogen enrichment

    Farming fish together with seaweed and other species could help improve the sustainability of aquaculture and reduce pollution. A new study provides a tool for designing sustainable fish farming systems and calculates their potential to recycle waste. An example of a salmon farming system incorporating seaweed and sea urchins could reduce nitrogen releases to the environment by 45%. Over half of ...

  • Aquaculture induced erosion of tropical coastlines throws coastal communities back into poverty

    Shallow tropical coastlines harbour unique mangrove ecosystems, which support livelihoods and provide a natural barrier against coastal flooding. Non-sustainable land-use practices, such as large-scale clear cutting of mangroves for aquaculture, ground water withdrawal and alteration of river flows, result in rapid subsidence. The collapse of aquaculture production, due to pollution and disease, ...

  • Ecological impacts of fluridone and copper sulphate in catfish aquaculture ponds

    Fluridone and copper sulphate are often used for controlling macrophytes and algae in aquaculture ponds. The present study examined the ecological effects of these chemicals on macrophyte, phytoplankton, and zooplankton biomass, plankton community structure, water quality parameters, and fish survival and yield in catfish culture ponds using a randomized complete block design. The estimated ...

  • Predicting the effects of copper on local population decline of two marine organisms, cobia fish and whiteleg shrimp, based on avoidance response

    Fry of the marine fish Rachycentron canadum (cobia) and larvae of the estuarine shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei (whiteleg shrimp) were exposed to a copper gradient which ranged from 0.20 to 1.80 mg Cu/L for the experiments with cobia and from 0.10 to 1.0 mg Cu/L for the experiments with whiteleg shrimp. The experiments focused on the avoidance response to predict the population decline. Avoidance ...

  • Seasteading could be the answer to sustainably feeding 9 billion people

    Self-sufficient nation states in the middle of the ocean might be our ticket to a sustainable future. Oceans cover 71 percent of Earth’s surface, yet provide less than 2 percent of the food we eat. The growing demand for seafood, however — predicted to rise to 8 percent during the next decade — from an already depleted and exhausted ocean is forcing ...

  • Modifications of macrobenthos assemblages on land–based fish farm phytotreatment basins in the Orbetello lagoon

    In the Orbetello lagoon basin there are some intensive land–based fish–farming facilities which contribute to cause a significant cyclic development of the opportunistic chorophycea Ulva laetevirens, and consequent serious decay events in spring and summer. To minimise the nutrients' impact, fish farming was supplied with phytotreatment system. The purpose of this study was to ...
