Russia to establish first oyster spat hatcheries on the Black Sea

A group of Crimean businesspeople have planned to start growing oyster spat near Sevastopol, under a technology recently developed by the Russian Academy of Science. The new technology was recently rolled out by the Kovalevsky’s Institute of Biology of the Southern Seas. Currently, around 15 million oysters are consumed in Russia per year, and a growing number of them come from local farms. However, the entire spat supplies are coming from abroad, primarily the EU.

Xelect and Australis announce game-changing gain from trial

For aquaculture producers, feed is commonly the largest single expense, typically representing more than two-thirds of total production costs. Looking to find innovative ways to improve feed conversion efficiency, Vietnam-based barramundi producers Australis Aquaculture partnered with Xelect in 2018, and have been running an advanced genetics-backed breeding program. The two companies have now announced there's a high correlation between fasting tolerance and conversion efficiency, which suggests significant gains.

Explore advances in modern aquaculture breeding programs

Our changing climate and growing population challenge the world’s food supply, especially in aquaculture, which is more prone to problems associated with climatic variability. Innovative scientists are turning to advanced genomic tools to enhance the production efficiency, sustainability, product quality and profitability of aquaculture. They’re partnering with LGC, Biosearch Technologies to help optimise their workflows for maximum genetic gain using a modern agrigenomic approach. » Learn more

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. » Read more

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. » Read more » Read more
