Dartmouth scientists have created a more sustainable feed for aquaculture by using a marine microalga co-product as a feed ingredient. The study is the first of its kind to evaluate replacing fishmeal with a co-product in feed designed specifically for Nile tilapia. The results are published in the open access journal, PLOS ONE. Aquaculture is the world’s fastest growing food sector,
The aquaculture sector is growing, with fish farming being a key way to ensure Europe gets the quality food it needs without exploiting marine resources further. One key problem the industry faces is how to get the immature fish though their first few months – one EU project may be about to smooth the way. Aquaculture is a growing market
In her Aug. 2 OpEd on the future of aquaculture in Maine, Kimberly Hamilton gets it half-right. Maine does have an opportunity to be a global player in aquaculture. Indeed, Maine can harness its natural resources to help feed a hungry and growing world. But the risky and environmentally damaging model being advanced in Belfast and Bucksport is not the way to go. In Belfast, Nordic Aquafarms
Aquaculture will be the main focus of this year’s meeting of the American Fisheries Society (AFS), with presentations on breeding, rearing, and harvesting of aquatic organisms in freshwater, brackish, and marine environments. Some eight hours of the AFS event, which will take place in Atlantic City, New Jersey on 21-22 August, will be dedicated to exploring aquaculture policies, protections, and management.
Many are familiar with farmed salmon, catfish or tilapia. But there are many more potential species, says a research scientist at an aquaculture facility here. “When you compare fish farming to terrestrial farming we have thousands of different fish species that we could potentially farm… and when you compare that to terrestrial farming we have one species of chicken,” Philip
Gael Force Group, the aquaculture equipment manufacturer and supplier, has been shortlisted for three honours at the annual Highland Business Awards. Now in their sixth year, the awards present a platform upon which to celebrate the successes and excellence of businesses within the Highlands and Islands region. Gael Force’s ongoing contribution to the regional economy, and its continued impressive business performance
Atsuko Nozaki has been growing and selling oysters in Japan’s Okayama Prefecture for 46 years and is now the face of the family aquaculture business. The shallow coastal waters of Japan’s Seto Inland Sea have been home to oyster farming since the 16th century. Oysters thrive thanks to a sea full of nutrients and freshwater runoff from the surrounding mountains.
Maine is resilient. As former economic sectors decline, we find new ways to market our natural resources, provide jobs for Maine families, and support local and regional economies. Today, Maine is on the cusp of another economic resurgence — this time in aquaculture. Not one, but two significant projects are under development in Midcoast Maine, both slated to raise Atlantic
Vietnam has set an ambitious goal of becoming a leading country in aquaculture – specifically in the productive development of its coastal marine environment. Currently ranked as the fourth-largest producer of seafood from aquaculture, behind China, Indonesia, and India, Vietnam produced 3.84 million metric tons (MT) of farmed seafood in 2017. That was more than 53 percent of Vietnam’s total
HATCH, the world´s first global aquaculture accelerator, is moving to Cork, Ireland, for its second cohort after a successful first one in Bergen earlier in 2018. Start-ups along the whole aquaculture value chain from all over the world are invited to apply to the three-month intensive programme, which includes training, industry and investor networking, opportunities to run product development trials and access
