Revealing farmed sea bream’s diverse microbiome could aid health improvements
The microbiome of gilthead seabream farmed in the Mediterranean appears to be very distinct from that of their surrounding environment — offering new insight which may help in managing health issues associated with the species.
Fish farmers’ efforts to protect the environment often come at a cost to fish welfare, say scientists at the University of Melbourne, in a new opinion paper.
Columnaris disease, a potentially devastating condition affecting freshwater finfish, has been found infecting Nile tilapia eggs and larvae for the first time.
Pangasius farmers in Vietnam generally view vaccination in a positive light and are concerned about antibiotic use, although further work is required to ensure sustainable practices are widely implemented, new research led by University of Stirling suggests.
Spain’s marine aquaculture industry needs to make changes in order to meet biosecurity threats, according to a new EU-backed report.
Urgent action is needed to understand and counter the effects of anthropogenic climate change on farmed fish, according to a new review of knowledge to date.
A new study analyzing three strains of the bacterium Vibrio harveyi found among farmed sea bass in the Mediterranean has underlined the diversity of the pathogen, which poses a severe threat to the region’s aquaculture.
Light can affect the survival, growth and immune response of fish. New research shows that persistent exposure to low-intensity light decreases the survival rate of Nile tilapia but stimulates their disease resistance.
The discovery of a strain of Nile tilapia resistant to tilapia lake virus (TiLV) may prove useful in the fight to reduce the impact of the pathogen, which has emerged in the last decade and can cause extremely high mortalities among farmed fish.
