The value of adding taurine in low-fish meal diet for tilapia

Monday, February 27, 2023

Tilapias (dominated by Oreochromis niloticus) are the second largest group of farmed fish after carps and has become an integral part of human diets worldwide (FAO 2022). The sustainable production of tilapia is reliant on the provision of cost-effective formulated feeds.

Taurine plays an important role in aquatic feed

Monday, November 28, 2022

Considering the high price of fish meal and the shortage of natural resources, it has become a general trend to use other protein ingredients to reduce the use of fish meal in aquafeed.

Exclusive antioxidant technology helps optimizing feed costs & performance

Monday, May 9, 2022

Animals face every day various kind of stress: change of diet or raw material quality, hot temperature, diseases, handling and manipulations … Stress triggers the production of free reactive radicals in cells which oxidize lipids or proteins.

Application of GroPro in low fish meal diet

Monday, March 8, 2021

Fish meal has been traditionally the first choice of protein source in aquafeeds for many reasons, including its high protein content, excellent amino acid profile, high nutrient digestibility, general lack of antinutrients and wide availability.

Microbiome of Pacific Whiteleg shrimp reveals differential bacterial community composition between Wild, Aquacultured and AHPND/EMS outbreak conditions

Wednesday, September 2, 2020

Crustaceans form the second largest subphylum on Earth, which includes Litopeneaus vannamei (Pacific whiteleg shrimp), one of the most cultured shrimp worldwide. Despite efforts to study the shrimp microbiota, little is known about it from shrimp obtained from the open sea and the role that aquaculture plays in microbi ...

The role of the gut microbiome in sustainable teleost aquaculture

Tuesday, July 21, 2020

As the most diverse vertebrate group and a major component of a growing global aquaculture industry, teleosts continue to attract significant scientific attention. The growth in global aquaculture, driven by declines in wild stocks, has provided additional empirical demand, and thus opportunities, to explore teleost di ...

Is Super-Intensification the Solution to Shrimp Production and Export Sustainability?

Tuesday, December 17, 2019

The government of Vietnam has selected shrimp production and exports as the pillars of rural economic development. The targets set depend on high yields through production intensification. International and national public research communities have raised production intensification concerns related to environmental and ...

PirVP genes causing AHPND identified in a new Vibrio species (Vibrio punensis) within the commensal Orientalis clade

Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Acute hepatopancreatic necrosis disease (AHPND) has extended rapidly, causing alarming shrimp mortalities. Initially, the only known causative agent was Vibrio parahaemolyticus carrying a plasmid coding for the mortal toxins Pir VP . Recently, it has been found that the plasmid and hence the disease, could be transferr ...

Conjugative transfer of the pVA1-Type plasmid carrying the pirABvp genes results in the formation of new AHPND-causing Vibrio

Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Acute hepatopancreatic necrosis disease (AHPND) has caused sharp declines in aquaculture industries of whiteleg shrimp Penaeus vannamei in Asia and the Americas since 2010. Vibrio parahaemolyticus, V. campbellii, V. owensii, and V. punensis have been proved to cause AHPND.
