H2020 New Call for Access

H2020 New Call for Access | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
The AQUAEXCEL2020 project invites proposals from European research groups for scientific research that utilises the facilities of any of the participating aquaculture research infrastructures. The AQUAEXCEL2020 project unites major aquaculture experimental facilities with capacity to undertake experimental trials on a selection of commercially important fish aquaculture species and system types. These installations are made available to the research community for Transnational Access (TNA) with the support of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme. Transnational Access involves a research group in one country collaborating with one or more AQUAEXCEL2020 Infrastructures that are located in a different country to the applicant, and which offer facilities and expertise not available in their own country. The facilities available cover the entire range of production systems (cage, pond, recirculation, flowthrough, hatchery and disease challenge); environments (freshwater, marine, cold, temperate and warm water); scales (small, medium and industrial scale); fish species (salmonids, cold and warm water marine fish, freshwater fish and artemia); and fields of expertise (nutrition, physiology, health & welfare, genetics, engineering, monitoring & management technologies). Interested researchers can propose projects that involve visits of one or in some cases two people to the chosen research infrastructure for periods of up to three months. Access to the research infrastructures and associated travel and subsistence expenses will be paid for under the project. The establishment of new transnational collaborations is strongly encouraged, as well as the participation by SMEs.

ASEAN-FEN

ASEAN-FEN | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

The ASEAN-FEN is a team of university-based consortia representing the fisheries and aquaculture oriented institutions within the Southeast Asia region. The ASEAN-FEN is established by agreement of its principal members namely Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (Malaysia), Universiti Sains Malaysia (Malaysia), Can Tho University (Vietnam), Nong Lam University (Vietnam), Kasetsart University (Thailand), Prince of Songkla University (Thailand), Rajamangala University of Technology Srivijaya (Thailand) and Universitas Air Langga (Indonesia) for the purpose of supporting and enhancing the fisheries and aquaculture through education, research, and public outreach in the region. The ASEAN-FEN supports and facilitates the activities of educators, scientists, and agencies responding to local, regional, national, and international issues on fisheries and aquaculture. Annual activities include International Fisheries Symposium 2015.

Overdue to give this Asian network for aquaculture and fisheries education and research a mention.

Institute of Aquaculture: News: 2014: Pgconf_4 | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

Invitation from the University of Stirling, Institute of Aquaculture:

 

"This is the fourth postgraduate conference in what has proved a popular and interesting opportunity for our Ph.D. researchers to showcase their work, its quality and impact, and to provide a meeting place where students, staff, stakeholders, and sponsors across the aquaculture and wider sectors can liaise. What is more, it is completely free to attend! We hope you will join us for this day-long conference where you will have the opportunity to listen to a series of oral presentations on a wide range of subjects, and browse poster presentations by PhDs and young researchers from around the globe.

Conference delegates (both visitors to the university and university staff and students) are required to pre-register for the conference. Online registration will only take you a couple of minutes to complete. An early response would be appreciated to help us to plan facilities and catering for the day".

Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre - Scottish Salmon Producers' Organisation

Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre - Scottish Salmon Producers' Organisation | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

The industry’s commitment to supporting scientific research to underpin growth and development is set to move ahead with the formal launch of the Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC) in June 2014.

 

Five years of funding for the SAIC have now been secured from the Scottish Funding Council, in partnership with Highlands & Islands Enterprise and Scottish Enterprise and the aquaculture industry. The SAIC will bring thirteen Scottish Higher Education Institutions together with a large number of aquaculture businesses to support problem solving research specifically designed to deliver economic development.

 

The Centre will also focus on knowledge exchange and training.  All of the SAIC’s activities will promote collaboration between Scottish aquaculture businesses and the Scottish academic and research community.

Triploid and diploid Atlantic salmon show similar susceptibility to infection with salmon lice Lepeophtheirus salmonis - Frenzl - Pest Management Science - Wiley Online Library

Triploid and diploid Atlantic salmon show similar susceptibility to infection with salmon lice Lepeophtheirus salmonis - Frenzl - Pest Management Science - Wiley Online Library | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

Sea lice infection is the most expensive disease factor for Atlantic salmon sea-cage farming. For triploid salmon to be accepted as a commercial possibility, investigation of susceptibility of triploid salmon to sea lice infection is a fundamental milestone. The susceptibility of diploid and triploid salmon to infection with Lepeophtheirus salmonis was examined in a tank trial in Scotland, a tank trial in Norway and a cage trial in Scotland.Results

Following a single infection challenge, results indicated a significant correlation between fish size and the number of attached sea lice. Triploid fish were larger than diploids at the smolt stage. In the tank trials, no difference was found between infection levels on diploids and triploids after a single infection challenge. The tank trial in Scotland continued with a second infection challenge of the same fish, which also showed no infection differences between ploidies. A borderline correlation between first infection and re-infection intensity was found for PIT-tagged diploid salmon examined after each challenge. No significant difference in louse infection between diploid and triploid salmon (~2 kg) was found in the cage trial undertaken under commercial conditions.

Conclusion

This study concludes that triploid Atlantic salmon are not more susceptible to sea louse infection than diploid fish.

AQUAEXCEL TNA Project: New Herbal Anaesthetics for Fish

AQUAEXCEL TNA Project: New Herbal Anaesthetics for Fish | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

Türker Bodur from Akdeniz Üniversitesi in Turkey recently visited the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria under the EU AQUAEXCEL Programme to use the Spanish infrastructure for research on herbal anaesthetics.

 

Three different herbal extracts used in order to anaesthetize European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) and meagre (Argyrosomusregius) juveniles in this project. The project had two experiments. First we checked the suitable dosage of new anaesthetics for fish species. In second experiment, we checked the stress effect of new anaesthetics on species. Hence, we sampled blood from the fish at 4 timing points (0h, 2h, 6h and 24h) after the fish anaesthetized. Also stress genes expression will be analysed from anterior kidney, liver and gill tissues.

Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre | Transforming Scottish Aquaculture

Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre | Transforming Scottish Aquaculture | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
The Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC) will provide transformational change in the relationship between the aquaculture industry, the research community and Government to overcome these issues and release Scotland’s potential. Investment in the SAIC will help transform aquaculture’s already substantial contribution to the Scottish economy, with many of the benefits concentrated in fragile rural communities. The Scottish Government has adopted industry targets for increased production. In the salmon industry alone, meeting these targets would contribute an additional £500 million to the Scottish economy per year. If we consider the wider sector, including trout, shellfish, supply chain and all supporting businesses, then the overall financial contribution to the Scottish economy could exceed £1 billion. SAIC will bring together the key players in this strategically important industry, focusing on removing current and future obstacles, creating wealth and long term employment.
