Abstract

Fish are commonly sedated to render them immobile and thus easier to handle for research, veterinary, and aquaculture practices. Since sedation itself imposes a significant challenge on the targeted fish, the selection of sedation methods that minimize physiological and behavioral disturbance and...

Abstract

Stress responsiveness differs between individuals and is often categorized into different stress coping styles. Using these stress coping styles for selection in fish farming could be beneficial, since stress is one main factor affecting welfare. In Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus) carotenoid...

Abstract

Local anesthetics are an integral part of routine pain management in mammals, yet their use is relatively limited in fish, amphibians and reptiles. These animals frequently undergo potentially painful surgical procedures and therefore could possibly benefit from those drugs. Some recommendations...

Abstract

Fish transport costs are a substantial portion of the operational expenses for aquaculture facilities in the USA. Safely transporting higher loading densities of fish would benefit haulers by increasing efficiency and reducing costs, but research evaluating transport for individual species is...

Abstract

We evaluated sedation and recovery of juvenile sunshine bass (male Striped Bass Morone saxatilis × female White Bass M. chrysops) exposed to AQUI-S 20E (10% eugenol; 60 mg/L) in freshwater or increasingly brackish salinities (nominal salinities of 0, 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 g/L). Induction and...

Abstract

With many live imaging techniques, it is crucial that a deep level of anesthesia is reached and maintained throughout image acquisition without reducing zebrafish viability. This is particularly true for three-dimensional tomographic imaging modalities. Currently, the most commonly used anesthetic...

Abstract

Background: routine practices such as biometrics, transportation and medical procedures are a source of stress to fish. The use of anesthetics is recommended to reduce undesirable effects of stress, such as decreased feed intake and even mortality - in critical cases. Objective: the aim of this...

Abstract

Clove bud powder was used on three life stages of Sarotherodon melanotheron, Oreochromis niloticus and Tilapia guineensis to test its efficacy as an anaesthetic. Different concentrations were used in triplicate on 10 samples of adults, juveniles and fingerlings in 30 L plastic aquaria and induction ...

Abstract

Long-term in vivo imaging in adult zebrafish (i.e., 1-24 h) has been limited by the fact that regimens for long-term anesthesia in embryos and larvae are ineffective in adults. Here, we examined the potential for dynamic administration of benzocaine to enable long-term anesthesia in adult...

Abstract

The Largemouth Bronze Gudgeon Coreius guichenoti is a vulnerable and valuable fish in the upper Yangtze River of China. It is essential to keep it calm by using anesthetic in routine operations such as weight measurement, tag injection, and artificial spawning. This study was conducted to...
