Research could help improve the welfare of farmed lumpfish, a species used to control sea lice in salmon

Date

Abstract

Animal-assisted therapy involves many species of domesticated animals (e.g. dog, cat, horse) as well as more exotic species (e.g. dolphin) or small mammals (e.g. guinea pig) and is used for improvement in physical and mental functioning of both, children and adults. The aim of this review is to...

AbstractFull Text

The Bangladesh Rural Advancement Committee (BRAC) was set up in 1972 to assist refugees returning to Bangladesh after the War of Liberation. It quickly extended its activities to focus on improving the welfare of marginalised groups throughout the country, paying particular attention to health,...

Abstract

The development of acts and regulations on animal welfare in wildlife is still behind compared to domestic animals and laboratory animals. Japanese Society of Zoo and Wildlife Medicine (JSZWM) repeatedly discussed the current situation and issues of animal welfare and ethics on wildlife medicine, ...

Abstract

The water temperature of aquacultures is a primary factor of fish welfare, reproductive patterns, and immunity. To elucidate the molecular and biological processes of the temperature modulation of reproduction and immunity, female Nile tilapia (190 ± 10g) were allocated into five groups following...

Abstract

Aquaculture sustainability and profit is highly dependent on good welfare for farmed fish including the economically important species Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar). Welfare is closely linked to stress, as prolonged stressful farming conditions can translate into reduced performance and health....

Abstract

With expanding human populations, the food sector has faced constant pressure to sustainably expand and meet global production demands. In aquaculture this frequently manifests in an animal welfare crisis, with fish increasingly farmed under high production, high stress conditions. These intense...

Abstract

Ectoparasitic salmon louse (Lepeophtheirus salmonis) infestations are costly for Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) farmers in Norway. As a result, there is a strong desire for solutions to prevent and control infestations, and new technologies are typically developed and commercialised rapidly, without ...

Abstract

Triploid Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) aquaculture has been extensively considered for many years, but its development has so far remained very limited. This is mostly due to poorer farming performances of triploid fish (3 N) in comparison with their diploid (2 N) counterparts, with temperature...

Abstract

Infectious diseases represent an important barrier to sustainable aquaculture development. Rearing density can substantially impact fish productivity, health and welfare in aquaculture, including growth rates, behaviour and, crucially, immune activity. Given the current emphasis on aquaculture...
