Abstract

Infection with Streptococcus agalactiae causes mortality and major economic losses in Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) farming worldwide. In Brazil, serotype strains Ia, Ib and III have been isolated in streptococcosis outbreaks, but serotype Ib is the most prevalent. Vaccination is considered...

Abstract

Offshore mariculture could enable increased seafood production and economic development while alleviating pressure on coastal ecosystems and wild fisheries. In the Caribbean, however, an integrated assessment of the ecological and economic potential for mariculture in the region is lacking. We...

Abstract

Crustaceans are exposed to a range of environmental factors that can impact their condition, physiological function and growth. Condition indices are broadly defined as the extent to which stored nutrient reserves allow normal physiological function and growth, but can also represent more than...

Abstract

Selective breeding and genetic improvement have left detectable signatures on the genomes of domestic species. The elucidation of such signatures is fundamental for detecting genomic regions of biological relevance to domestication and improving management practices. In aquaculture, domestication...

Abstract

Zoonotic infections caused by bacterial pathogens are considered as major threat to humans and the aquaculture industry. This problem triggered the search for various natural products from plants, microorganisms, animal tissues, and secretions to determine the presence of metabolites that may be of ...

Abstract

Periphyton is the complex of sessile aquatic biota with associated detritus, attached to submerged substrates. A possibility of regular income generation through traditional farming is limited due to small land holding, soil salinity, frequent attacks of cyclones like 'Aila', floods, seawater...

Abstract

The use of phytochemicals to control precocious maturation and indiscriminate spawning among tilapia species is an important issue in aquaculture. This study investigated the influence of pawpaw (Carica papaya) seed meal on the reproductive performance, and the sex hormone profile of sexually...

Abstract

Schizothorax prenanti is a cold-water fish species with great economic importance in aquaculture in Western China, and the underlying mechanisms of muscle development and growth in S. prenanti remain to be elucidated. In this study, deep RNA sequencing was performed to provide an in-depth view of...

Abstract

The framework provided by the Dynamic Energy Budget (DEB) theory allows the quantification of metabolic processes and the associated biological rates that are of interest for aquaculture, such as growth and feeding. The DEB parameters were estimated for farmed European sea bass (Dicentrarchus...
