Abstract

Thermal delousing has become the most applied method for treatment against salmon lice. However, the temperature range used is strongly aversive for salmonids, and the method is associated with increased mortality. Treatment temperature × duration combinations should be tailored to maximise...

Abstract

Ichthyophthirius multifiliis is a ciliated ectoparasite that infects almost all freshwater fishes with low host specificity. However, an endemic fish in the upper Yangtze River, Percocypris pingi, was thought by aqua-culturists to be completely resistant to I. multifiliis. We therefore aimed to...

Abstract

The ionic profile of inland low salinity water sources can be dramatically different with variable concentrations of magnesium (Mg2+). Inland shrimp farmers in Alabama, USA, supplement Mg2+ at the start of each production cycle to reach concentrations >20 mg/L at 1 to 11 g/L salinities. However, ...
