The Aquaculturists: Reclaimed shipping container produces sustainable fish

The Aquaculturists: Reclaimed shipping container produces sustainable fish | Global Aquaculture News & Events | Scoop.it
London-based organisation Grow Up has unveiled a new project in Southwark, London. Utlilising a piece of land as small as a single parking space, the project will produce sustainable vegetables and fish.
Housed in a reclaimed shipping container, the Grow Up Box is a two-tiered operation, growing Tilapia (an omnivorous white fish) on the lower level with a greenhouse on top for salad greens and herbs. The small urban farm works by using aquaponics - a closed-loop farming method that combines hydroponics and aquaculture. The nutrient-rich waste water from the fish tanks fertilises the plants which, in turn, purifies the water pumped back into the fish tank below. Once set up, the only inputs into the system are vegetarian fish food and energy for the water and oxygen pumps.  Feeding fish on a vegetarian protein diet is a desirable alternative to feeding farmed fish on unsustainable wild fish fry sources. Since water is fed directly to the plant roots and then recirculated to the fish tanks, the system uses considerably less water than traditional agricultural systems. The Grow Up Box model is estimated to produce as much as 60 kilograms (more than 130 pounds) of fish each year. 60 kilograms of whole Tilapia is sufficient for 2-3 people to enjoy one fish per week for a year. An exciting development in the arena of microfarming, the GrowUp Box inspires new ways for urban communities to localise the production of fresh, sustainable and healthy food, as well as combine farming, retail sales and/or restaurant production in hybrid and potentially transportable hub networks.

The Aquaculturists: BioMar and Lallemand Animal Nutrition extend their collaboration

The Aquaculturists: BioMar and Lallemand Animal Nutrition extend their collaboration | Global Aquaculture News & Events | Scoop.it

The fish feed supplier, BioMar, and the feed additives and specialty functional feed ingredients manufacturer, Lallemand SAS, have signed a formal research, development and commercial collaboration agreement aimed at expanding the knowledge and use of probiotics in fish feeding.

“This agreement is a natural continuation of the excellent relationship forged with Lallemand Animal Nutrition for more than 10 years, which has led to important innovative landmarks such as the approval for the first time of the use of a probiotic in fish feeding by the European Food Safety Authority - Lallemand’s BACTOCELL® for use in fish feed” said Mr Torben Svejgaard, CEO of the BioMar Group at the occasion of the sealing of their latest agreement.

BioMar has since 2010, when the first EFSA approval was given, been the only feed supplier to offer fish feed with BACTOCELL®. With the extension of the EU approval earlier this year to all fish species, BioMar has launched additional new products with BACTOCELL®. These include the highly successful LARVIVA ProStart targeted at early weaning for fish larvae, as well as other types of fish feed such as the INICIO Plus fry feed for Mediterranean fish species.

”Lallemand Animal Nutrition sees a natural ally in BioMar with both companies equally devoted to funding robust research and development aimed at effective commercialization of products” said Dr Yannig Le Treut, GM of Lallemand Animal Nutrition. “We are also both committed to seeking sufficiently high level of understanding and well documented support for the natural solutions we offer to our customers. BACTOCELL® is still the only zootechnical additive approved by the European Food Safety Authorities for use in fish feed, having unequivocally demonstrated beneficial animal performances.

Dr Le Treut added: “On the development stance, a partnership with BioMar gives us access to both trial facilities for fish feeding as well as access to the extensive network BioMar has among fish farmers; providing willing sites and capabilities to enable testing of new feed solutions in “real life” situations. This has proven to be very effective and beneficial e.g. in the approval of BACTOCELL® where laboratory results were subsequently confirmed in field trials under industrial production conditions.”

The current agreement consolidates an already substantial research and development collaboration between the two companies. “We have from both sides allocated significant amounts of resources in a bid to continue to fund research which provides tangible, natural and economic solutions with regards to optimizing fish health, nutrition and welfare. In particular and at the moment we are looking at the effects of probiotics on the microbiome and on gut function, which has been hypothesized to be linked to the prevention of viral and bacterial outbreaks”, voiced by Dr Patrick Campbell and Dr Mathieu Castex in charge of the joint R&D programmes.

The agreement grants BioMar an exclusivity partnership with Lallemand on the use of BACTOCELL® in fish feed in all the key markets where BioMar operates. “We see a huge potential for the use of probiotics in fish feed, and we are therefore of course extremely pleased with this collaboration, which will extend our lead with these kinds of products” says Mr Torben Svejgaard.
Whilst the current agreement focuses on the use of probiotics, both Lallemand and BioMar admit that future agreements could extend to other areas of research, development, additives and animal categories of mutual interest. Lallemand Animal Nutrition already supplies several other important additives and ingredients to the fish feed industry and new actives are currently being evaluated in aquatic species.

The Aquaculturists: New! IAF article: Dominique P Bureau column

The Aquaculturists: New! IAF article: Dominique P Bureau column | Global Aquaculture News & Events | Scoop.it

Dominique P Bureau, a member of the International Aquafeed editorial panel, shares his thoughts on nutrient requirements.

In a context of significant competition and low profit margins, aquaculture feed manufacturers are required to formulate to increasing lower or narrower nutritional specifications (‘specs’) in order to minimize feed cost. Decreasing specs for certain nutrients can significantly reduce the cost of feeds. However, at the same time, feed manufacturers must be sure that their feeds can sustain high growth, feed efficiency, health, and product quality. Consequently, formulating cost-effective aquaculture feeds can be a very delicate balancing act that requires accurate and precise information on the nutritive value of feed ingredients and nutrient requirements.
Significant efforts have been invested over the past six decades on defining the nutrient requirements of numerous fish and crustacean species and the body of knowledge is growing significantly every year. Reviews of the literature and nutritional recommendations are provided on a relatively regular basis by different groups of researchers or committee of experts.

Growing to about 5 inches on average, the Peruvian anchovy might seem an unlikely candidate for the title of the world’s mightiest fish.

However, according to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization, the Peruvian anchovy is “the most heavily exploited fish in world history,” with annual catches in Chile and Peru sometimes totaling more than 9 million tons, two or three times the United States' catch of all fish species.

UNITED STATES: Oysters Help Clean New York’s Dirty Harbor

UNITED STATES: Oysters Help Clean New York’s Dirty Harbor | Global Aquaculture News & Events | Scoop.it

How do you keep New York’s harbor clean? At a high school on Governor’s Island just south of Manhattan, the answer has been tested: oysters.

 

Marine biologists have used oysters for centuries for the efficient way they filter dirt out of water, as much as 50 gallons a day per oyster. In fact, there used to be trillions of oysters in the New York Harbor about 400 years ago before the water became too polluted for them to survive.

 

Thanks to the Clean Water Act, oysters can now populate the river and start slurping dirt once again. The only problem is how to get them back there.

 

This week Change Reaction visited the New York Harbor School, a small public high school on Governor’s Island, just south of Manhattan. The school’s goal is to return 1 billion oysters into the river over the next twenty years. It’s a small fraction of the number there once was, but it’s a start.

 

And the school is using the project as a teachable moment, instructing students how to nurture the oyster larvae, build artificial reefs for the oysters to live on, and how to dive in order to put them at the bottom of the river.

 

Can it be done? Since 2011, the school has introduced about 2.5 million oysters. That number is expected to rise dramatically as students get faster at the process, says Murray Fisher, the founder of the Harbor School and the brains behind the Billion Oyster Project. They also hope outside funding from the city may allow them to build new equipment. “What I’m most excited about is having this type of environmental restoration become a good model for engaging students,” Fisher said, while volunteers counted oyster larvae nearby. The only thing definitely out of the question: At the end of their lives, the oysters are filled with so much bacteria and pathogens from a lifetime of filtering, they’re unsafe to eat.

Fish oil might help fight type 2 diabetes but the link is unclear according to a study conducted at Harvard. Researchers analysed data from 14 studies involving 1,323 subjects to determine the effects of fish oil supplements on diabetes risk factors. They found that fish oil was associated with an increase in the level of the hormone adiponectin - which effects glucose regulation and inflammation.
