The Aquaculturists: New! IAF article: Enhancing the nutritional value of live feeds with microalgae

The Aquaculturists: New! IAF article: Enhancing the nutritional value of live feeds with microalgae | Global Aquaculture News & Events | Scoop.it
They are what they eat - Enhancing the nutritional value of live feeds with microalgae by Eric C Henry PhD, research scientist, Reed Mariculture Inc., USA. Live feeds are proven to be essential first-feed for many larval fish, essentially all those that hatch from small eggs with limited yolk reserves and often immature feeding and digestive functions. Live feeds provide larval fish with essential nutrients that are naturally ‘microencapsulated’ in bite-sized packages. They include a high proportion of easily-assimilated free amino acids and free fatty acids, as well as digestive enzymes and beneficial bacterial microfloras in the gut contents of the prey. The swimming activity of live prey also stimulates feeding responses in larval fish, a vital concern because small larvae with very limited metabolic reserves can quickly starve if they do not promptly begin feeding actively.  The natural live foods of such larvae are of course microplankton, both zooplankton and (although often not appreciated) phytoplankton. Natural zooplankton assemblages are often highly diverse and may include protozoa, rotifers, arroworms, microcrustaceans such as copepods, and eggs and larvae of nearly every group of marine animals including sponges, coelenterates, polychaetes, various crustaceans, mollusks, echinoderms, and even fish. This diverse array of prey organisms supplies multiple sources of essential nutrients. But it can be very difficult to obtain sufficient natural plankton to supply the needs of a hatchery, and natural plankton can introduce predators, parasites and pathogens. Hatchery-cultured live feeds are therefore the only practical and safe feed for many larval fish.

The Aquaculturists: Video: International small-scale fisheries guidelines via FAO

The Aquaculturists: Video: International small-scale fisheries guidelines via FAO | Global Aquaculture News & Events | Scoop.it

In 2011 the FAO Committee on Fisheries recommended the development of international guidelines on small-scale fisheries based on the increasing recognition of small-scale fisheries as a principal contributor to poverty alleviation and food.  The objective of the guidelines is to provide information, advise and recommendations and to establish principles and criteria to assist states and stakeholders to achieve secure and sustainable small-scale fisheries and related livelihoods. The guidelines are developed through a consultative process involving governments, regional organisations, civil society organisations, small-scale fishers, fish workers and their communities.  In February 2012 FAO convened an expert workshop on International guidelines on securing sustainable small-scale fisheries and workshop participants were asked to talk about the importance of small-scale fisheries in their country/for their institution and about the relevance of the new Guidelines.

The Aquaculturists: 07/05/13: Pesticides damage Scottish lochs; controversy over NZ aquaculture cash; cargo ships carry invasive species

The Aquaculturists: 07/05/13: Pesticides damage Scottish lochs; controversy over NZ aquaculture cash; cargo ships carry invasive species | Global Aquaculture News & Events | Scoop.it

Pesticides from salmon farms have poisoned Scottish lochs, reports the Herald Scotland.
Twelve farms breached safety limits for pesticides, according to the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa) which gathered data from 24 farms over a three-year period.
The worst site was near a Marine Harvest farm in Loch Shell on the east of Lewis where levels of a pesticide called teflubenzuron were up to 455 times higher than Sepa's environmental quality standards in 2012. Sepa is now reviewing the operating licence for the Loch Shell fish farm with a view to imposing restrictions on the volume of pesticides, and the mass of salmon that can be kept in cages.

The Aquaculturists: 03/05/13: EU to revamp aquaculture laws; EMS update; aquaculture to control invasive species

The European Commission is to revamp aquaculture laws as part of changes to the Common Fisheries Policy.The Commission is taking an initiative to boost the economic performance of aquaculture in Europe. This is a timely proposal. At EU level, the gap between seafood consumption and production from wild fisheries keeps growing due to overfishing. This is what the slide above highlights. Moreover, the EU aquaculture industry is not growing as quickly as the gap. Quite to the contrary, production has been rather stagnating. In 2010 it represented representing 10 percent of EU consumption. If we can raise this percentage up to 1percent we can help creating 3,000 to 4,000 jobs.So, what are the challenges? What are the solutions?Each country will have its own national plan for aquaculture on the basis of which the founding will be proposed. What these plans are going to include? First, we see evidence from entrepreneurs having to wait up to 3 years to obtain a production licence. If aquaculture is to be competitive, we need to eliminate red tape - whilst maintaining our "state of the art" EU rules on environmental and consumer protection. For example, Denmark adopted a simplified "all in one" system to speed up approval procedures.Secondly, across Europe, different activities compete for access to space. In March of this year, the Commission tabled a proposal for a Directive on integrated spatial planning and coastal zones management. This initiative should allow all activities (like tourism and aquaculture), as well as their positive and negative impact, to be fully taken into account. Thirdly, aquaculture should become more competitive. We need diversification and a new species production. Also we need better coordination of the sector and a better knowledge on supply chain. Our new funding instrument can help on that, after a reform of our fisheries policy.Finally, being more competitive on the international scene also means exploiting our assets better. A key asset is quality, linked to the high standards which we decide to impose on ourselves here in Europe. Operators can explore new niche markets, like organic aquaculture. More broadly, the key here will be providing better information to the consumers on these EU qualities. Our proposals on labelling are currently being discussed between Council and Parliament in the framework of the reform . Beyond this, my intention is to engage in a promotion campaign in order to help producers highlight their local qualities. This is not an easy task, but filling the gap is an opportunity which we should not miss. Fish consumption is increasing dramatically, and rightly so. Fish is essential to our health. But we need a way out of the trap which is called overfishing. Aquaculture could become an important part of the solution, but it needs a boost. And we are giving it.This article on the Food Navigator examines the impact this could have on the food manufacturing industry. Improved aquaculture will have have a positive impact on the whole food supply chain if the quality of fish improves.

The scientific community is divided over the threat of farmed salmon to the wild population. This article in the New York Times is a great introduction to the two main views.Biologist Alexandra Morton is one of the most vocal opponents to salmon farming. Morton argues that wild Pacific salmon are testing positive for a European strain of the virus that causes infectious salmon anemia (ISA).However, scientists and government testing groups in Canada and the United States have said repeatedly said that the risks to wild salmon are unclear.

The Aquaculturists: 01/05/13: Lobster aquaculture funding in Tasmania; US steelhead trout farms gets BAP status; Canadian election candidates share salmon farming opinions | Global Aquaculture News & Events | Scoop.it
Pacific Seafood Group's steelhead trout farm on the Columbia River is the first US steelhead trout or salmon farm to achieve Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification.
Operated by Pacific Seafood's Pacific Aquaculture division, the BAP-certified farm is located in Nespelem, Washington, on the Colville Nation, in northeastern Washington state. Pacific Seafood purchased the farm in 2008 but partners with the Colville Nation to operate it; most of the farm employees are members of the Colville Nation.
The farm produces more than 8 million pounds (3.63 million kilograms) of steelhead (Oncorhynchus mykiss) annually; the fish are raised in pens. The fish are marketed throughout North America, mostly fresh, to both retail and foodservice customers.

We've heard about using shrimp shells to ripen bananas now researchers at Nofima, Norway are investigating even more ways to use shrimp by-products. The organisation is taking part in an EU-funded project into 'active' packaging. Chitin and Chitosan from shells shells can be used in packaging to conserve food. What's more, the packaging is biodegradable, making it an eco-friendly alternative to plastic.

Nofima's part of the two year project, which is being conducted with other European research facilities, equates to NOK 1 million in funding.

Concern is growing over the potential impact of Asian grass carp in US waterways after a 40-pond fish was caught by an angler in Grand River near Dunnville.
Asian carp, which is native to China, was introduced to North America in the 1970s to control algae in Arkansas aquaculture ponds. Since then, the fish have spread throughout the Mississippi River watershed and advanced into the Great Lakes, dominating the natural habitat and forcing native species out.

The use of alternative feed ingredients in aquaculture is gaining increasing academic and commercial interest. This article by Dr SV Oamulapati and Prakesh Chandra Behera, PVS Group, India, examines the multifunctional dietary properties of spirulina. In commercial and high stocking density culture practices, feeding plays a significant role in fast growth and high yields. Aqua feed contains many ingredients in highly balanced nutritious components for enhancing the digestive mechanisms in fish and shrimp bodies. It leads to better body weights and health, optimum immunity and greater survival rates. Spirulina is a unique high quality natural diet with enriched optimum protein for fish and shrimp which is proven to be a suitable supplementary feed in aquaculture.

The Aquaculturists: Cause of EMS shrimp disease identified

The Aquaculturists: Cause of EMS shrimp disease identified | Global Aquaculture News & Events | Scoop.it
The pathogen which causes early mortality syndrome (EMS), an emerging shrimp disease in Southeast Asia more technically known as acute hepatopancreatic necrosis syndrome (AHPNS), has been identified. A research team led by Donald Lighter at the University of Arizona, found that EMS is caused by a bacterial agent, which is transmitted orally, colonises the shrimp gastrointestinal tract and produces a toxin that causes tissue destruction and dysfunction of the shrimp digestive organ known as the hepatopancreas. It does not affect humans.
Research continues on the development of diagnostic tests for rapid detection of the EMS/AHPNS pathogen that will enable improved management of hatcheries and ponds, and help lead to a long-term solution for the disease. It will also enable a better evaluation of risks associated with importation of frozen shrimp or other products from countries affected by EMS.
Since EMS was first reported in China in 2009, it has spread to Vietnam, Malaysia and Thailand, and now causes annual losses more than US$1 billion. EMS outbreaks typically occur within the first 30 days after stocking a newly prepared shrimp pond, and mortality can exceed 70 percent.
