Abstract

Deformities in cultured fish species may be genetic, and identifying causative genes is essential to expand production and maintain farmed animal welfare. We previously reported a genetic deformity in juvenile red sea bream, designated a transparent phenotype. To identify its causative gene, we...

Abstract

Zebrafish is a worldwide used animal model to better understand cultured fish species; thus, in the last two decades, zebrafish facilities have been created in many aquaculture research centres. However, and despite the attempts of rigorous aseptic conditions for animal husbandry in wet laboratory...

Abstract

Sea cage fish farming is typically open to the environment, with disease transmission possible between farmed and wild hosts. In salmonid aquaculture, salmon louse Lepeophtheirus salmonis infestations cause production losses, reduce welfare for farmed fish and increase infestation rates for wild ...

Abstract

Product information is capable of steering the consumers' expectation formation process. Therefore, this paper aims to investigate whether information on production method influence consumers' preference and liking of smoked salmon. A consumer test was conducted among 92 consumers to determine...

Abstract

Teleost fish such as Danio rerio (zebrafish) have been successfully used in biomedical research since decades. Genetically altered fish lines obtained by state-of-the-art genetic technologies are serving as well-known model organisms. In Europe, following Directive 2010/63/EU, generation, breeding, ...

Abstract

Current European Union regulation explicitly states that farmed fish should be spared any avoidable pain, distress or suffering at the time of slaughter. It has been shown that fish suffer when they are killed in an ice slurry, the most common method of killing farmed fish in the Mediterranean....

Abstract

An 8 weeks regression study was performed to test the effects of increasing light intensities from darkness to 30 W m-2 on growth performance, molting, antioxidant capacity, and gene expression of molting and apoptosis-related genes in Scylla paramamosain. No significant differences were found in...

Abstract

Chronic stress is known to impair fish health, performance, and welfare. Although physiological responses to acute stress have been well studied and reliable as well as easily quantified indicators, like circulating cortisol, are available in fish, the same is not true for chronic stress....
