Abstract

Inland water fisheries are a significant source of dietary protein to human populations, and consequently they are essential economic activities worldwide. However, both natural waters and aquaculture systems, which form the freshwater fisheries are faced with a problem of fish parasitic diseases...

AbstractFull Text

The present study investigated the growth performance, weight gain, feed conversion ratio, growth and survival rate of European catfish (Silurus glanis L.) fingerlings reared for one month in tanks with different colours. Four colours were used: light blue, white, green and black. The experimental...

Abstract

Salinity is an important abiotic factor for aquatic organisms. In fish, changes in salinity affect physiological responses and alter the immune system. Takifugu rubripes is an important economic marine fish, and mechanisms of T. rubripes adaptation to salinity changes need to be further documented. ...

Abstract

As a member of the genus Cyprinivirus in the family Alloherpesviridae, Cyprinid herpesvirus 2 (CyHV-2) has caused great economic loss in the aquaculture industry, mainly in C. auratus gibelio and goldfish. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying the pathogenicity of CyHV-2 remain elusive. In...

Abstract

In most breeding schemes, fish are cultured in enclosed spaces, which greatly increases the risk of outbreaks where the onset of infectious diseases can cause massive mortality and enormous economic losses. Vaccination is the most effective and long-term measure for improving the basic make-up of a ...

Abstract

Short neuropeptide F (sNPF), a highly conserved neuropeptide, displays pleiotropic functions on multiple aspects of physiological processes, such as feeding, metabolic stress, locomotion, circadian clock and reproduction. However, to date there has no any report on the possible immunoregulation of...

Abstract

The South African abalone Haliotis midae is a commercially important species farmed at high densities in land-based aquaculture systems. Disease outbreaks have had a severe financial impact on the abalone industry yet the molecular mechanisms underlying the immune response of H. midae remain...

Abstract

Losses due to mortality are a serious economic drain on Scottish salmon aquaculture and are a limitation to its sustainable growth. Understanding the changes in losses, and associated drivers, are required to identify risks to sustainable aquaculture. Data on losses were obtained from two open...
