Bacteria A. sobria could cause red discolouration in channel catfish fillet: U.S. study

More than one per cent of the catfish fillets from each harvest is rejected by processing plants due to diffuse red discolouration in the fillet. Per 2019 data, the estimated annual loss was US$683,000 for catfish processors. In the study by Shay S. Keretz et al., “Effects of Aeromonas sobria on physiology and fillet quality of market-sized channel catfish,” fillets from channel catfish inoculated with bacteria A. sobria demonstrated redness values similar to that of the catfish fillets rejected by processors.

Atlantic Sapphire, Skretting, and Veramaris join forces for algal oil feed project

Land-based salmon producer Atlantic Sapphire, global animal feed company Skretting, and algal oil producer Veramaris are working on a project to cut fish oil content in salmon feed. The Florida-based aquaculture company announced that it has agreed to include Veramaris ASC-MSC-certified sustainable algal oil in its salmon feed beginning in the fourth quarter of 2021. The move will cut fish oil content in Atlantic Sapphire’s salmon feed by approximately 25 per cent and accelerate the elimination of marine-derived feed ingredients by 2025.

Nofima announces research developments of sterilised salmon

Nofima researchers and partners have announced the development of a promising method to sterilise salmon, which they’ve been working on for several years and further, can document that sterile salmon are just as healthy as fertile salmon. There’s been a demand for sterile farmed salmon, as this can limit the impact of escaped farmed salmon in rivers; additionally, sterile salmon production will contribute to improved meat quality, less disease, and lower mortality.
