  • Prevent Fish Kill in the Spring

    Pond Deicing Can Help Prevent Fish Kill Keeping the pond open will help keep oxygen in the water, attract water fowl and help prevent fish kills in the spring. The most common cause of fish kills is suffocation due to lack of dissolved oxygen. Most dissolved oxygen is produced by algae and aquatic plants through photosynthesis. A lesser but also important source of oxygen in water ...

  • Floating Fish Feed Machine in Negria

    Nigeria is one of the largest fish consumers in the world. Since the demand of fish is increasing continuously, many farmers have started fish farming in small scale for fulfilling their daily family demands or in large scale for making more profit. Commercial fish farming in Nigeria has great opportunities. One of significant factors in fish farming is fish feed which can offer fish better ...

  • Molecular evolution of haemoglobins of polar fishes

    The Arctic and the Antarctic differ by age and isolation of the respective marine faunas. Antarctic fish are highly stenothermal, in response to stable water temperatures, whereas the Arctic ones are exposed to seasonal and latitudinal temperature variations. The knowledge of the mechanisms of phenotypic response to cold exposure in species of both polar habitats offers fundamental insights into ...

  • Case study: fish processing plant wastewater treatment

    Abstract This presentation describes the full scale installation of a wastewater treatment system at the Ocean Gold Seafood ("OCS") plant in Westport, Washington, USA. Local Government requires that fish processors remove total suspended solids (TSS), fats, oil and grease (FOGs) and colloidal materials almost completely in order to allow for efficient disinfection. The OCS plant had only ...

  • Transport and fate of estrogenic hormones in slurry-treated soil monoliths

    Received for publication October 29, 2007. The naturally occurring hormones, such as 17-β-estradiol, 17-{alpha}-estradiol, and estrone, present in livestock manure may have detrimental environmental effects if released into surface waters. In areas where manure application is intensive, estrogens have been found in surface waters in concentrations known to affect the endocrine system of fish ...

  • Hydro-Transporting Food: best practices for food processing pumps

    Processing plants look for continuous and trouble-free operation from a pump capable of transporting even the most delicate whole food products or processed foods, while keeping product damage to a minimum. This ensures the highest profits for the plant. Cornell pumps help hydro-transfer systems to clean and convey potatoes, carrots, cranberries, pickles, cherries, beans, peppers, leafy ...

  • Mercury concentrations of a resident freshwater forage fish at Adak Island, Aleutian Archipelago, Alaska

    The Aleutian Archipelago is an isolated arc of over 300 volcanic islands stretching 1,600 km across the interface of the Bering Sea and North Pacific Ocean. Although remote, some Aleutian Islands were heavily impacted by military activities from World War II until recently and were exposed to anthropogenic contaminants, including mercury (Hg). Mercury is also delivered to these islands via ...

  • Tissue accumulation and species‐specific metabolism of technical pentabrominated diphenyl ether (DE‐71) in two predator fish

    The tissue‐specific accumulation and species‐specific metabolism of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) in two predator fish species (redtail catfish and oscar fish) feeding on the same prey (tiger barb) that was exposed to technical pentabrominated diphenyl ether (DE‐71) in the laboratory were investigated. The trends in the wet‐weight tissue concentration of PBDEs in two predatory fish ...

  • Trip generation and modal choice among commuters of road and water transport in Nigerian coastal communities

    This study analysed trip–making behaviour in the riverine communities of Ondo State, Nigeria. The number and purposes of trips made for one week and factors influencing commuters' mode choice were examined. 240 household heads, proportionally–selected from 13 communities were sampled. Results showed that 2,337 trips were generated per week, with 1,638 trips by water transport and 699 by road, ...

  • Composting In rural Alaska

    Gardeners, communities and commercial enterprises have proven that composting works in Alaska, especially given large quantities of fish waste and diminishing landfill capacity. ALASKA is two and a half times larger than the largest state in the lower 48 states. Over half of the entire state’s population lives within the municipality of Anchorage. Many Alaskan villages can only be reached ...

  • The economic contributions of anglers to the Los Cabos economy: quantifying value in a sustainable fishery

    In 2007 and 2008, a comprehensive study was conducted to estimate the dollars, jobs and tax revenues created by anglers in the Los Cabos region. In that period an estimated 354,013 people, most all of them international visitors, fished in Los Cabos. While in Los Cabos, they spent an estimated $1,785 each for lodging, charter boats, food, transportation, tackle, fuel, and much more. These ...

  • The Role of Mangroves in Fisheries Enhancement

    In 2011 humans caught and consumed 78.9 million tonnes of fish, crustaceans, molluscs and other species groups from the world’s oceans, accounting for 16.6% of the world’s animal protein intake (FAO 2012). This is projected to increase further, to over 93 million tonnes by 2030 (World Bank 2013). Global demand for fish products has increased dramatically over recent decades. Fishing ...

  • P‐gp efflux pump inhibition potential of common environmental contaminants determined in vitro

    Across different species, cellular efflux pumps such as P‐glycoprotein (P‐gp, MDR1) serve as a first line of defence by transporting toxic xenobiotics out of the cell. This mechanism is also active in aquatic organisms such as mussels, fish and their larvae. Modulation of this resistance mechanism by chemical agents occurring in the environment could result in either higher or lower internal ...

  • Toxicokinetics of perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)

    Rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) confined to respirometer‐metabolism chambers were dosed with perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) by intra‐arterial injection and sampled to obtain concentration time‐course data for plasma, and either urine or expired water. The data were then analyzed using a two‐compartment clearance‐volume model. Renal and branchial clearance rates (CLR and CLB; mL/d/kg) ...
