Gill diseases are a growing health challenge in salmon farming worldwide, but many gaps remain in our knowledge. Gill diseases are generally complex and multifactorial disorders, often with presumable spatial and temporal distribution patterns, but are highly difficult to effectively prevent and...

A few major ions contribute most of the weight of dissolved solids in water. Direct determination of total dissolved solids (TDS) concentration is tedious, and the electrical conductivity of freshwater and the salinity of saline water are common surrogates for TDS in aquaculture. The primary...

Disease is an important limitation on aquatic production, particularly for intensified aquaculture. Disease spread depends on behaviour of the pathogens on local scales and over short periods, their interaction with currents operating over many kilometres and days and the build-up of infection in...

A new paradigm - 'sustainable nutrition' - has emerged where distinct streams of scientific discourse are beginning to overlap: in global change, environmental science, agriculture, food security, nutrition, sustainable development and public health. A broadening of perspective has accompanied this ...

The rapid drop in cost and increase in throughput of nucleic acid sequencing has provided many opportunities for aquaculture genetics and breeding. Genome-wide genetic marker data can now be readily generated in a cost-effective manner, even for species without extensive prior genomic tools. The...

The farming systems of the world have to meet multiple demands, e.g. supporting livelihood, conserving biodiversity, off-setting emissions and adapting to climate change. As a traditional way of farming in India, an integrated farming system (IFS) represents multiple crops (cereals, legumes, tree...
