Abstract

Aquatic animal diseases are one of the major limiting factors in aquaculture development, with disease emergence forecast to increase with global change. However, in order to treat increasing diseases in a context of global emergence of antimicrobial resistance and strengthening regulations on...

Abstract

This study was performed to investigate the effect of the dietary supplementation of chitosan-vitamin C nanocomposite (CVCN) at four different concentrations (0, 200, 300, 400 mgkg-1 diet) in Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) fingerlings, for ten weeks feeding period, on the growth performance,...

Abstract

Schizochytrium sp. added to the diet is beneficial to improve growth and fatty acid profile of fish, but there is a lack of comprehensive understanding of the mechanism by which Schizochytrium sp. supplementation produces pathogen resistance. In the present study, the effects of dietary ...

Abstract

We tested hypothesis that inclusion of the disease resistance indicator traits in a dairy goats' breeding goal would result to increased profitability of smallholder farmers. Deterministic simulation was used to compare responses for breeding schemes without (Scheme I) and with (Schemes II, III and ...

Abstract

This investigation describes the impacts of dietary provisioning with astaxanthin on hemato-biochemistry, non-specific immunity, and disease resistance of the Asian seabass, Lates calcarifer, against the virulent Vibrio alginolyticus; with specific reference to dose-response associations and...

Abstract

Breeding for disease resistance is an important task for genetic improvement in aquaculture. Identification of DNA markers associated with disease resistance is a critical step towards molecular breeding for disease resistance. Iridovirus causes mass mortality in hatchery of an important food fish...

Abstract

Low-molecular-weight nucleotides are very important for fish and terrestrial animals, which have been verified to possess multidirectional biological functions including anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-oxidant, anti-apoptotic effects. This research was designed to fully explore the possible ...

Abstract

Natural immunostimulants and growth-promoting functions of medicinal plants in aquaculture have been on a steady rise. The present study was carried out to understand the effect of dietary peppermint (Mentha piperita) on growth, survival, disease resistance and haematology of Labeo rohita. Diets...
