Shrimp Culture

  • Experiences at a farm-based, pond-type Litopenaeus vannamei nursery in India
    In Andhra Pradesh, Surendran V, Ravikumar Y, Chandrashekhar JYR and Anantheswara Bhat D report on the development of an on-farm nursery project.
  • A parabiotic positively impacts shrimp production in laboratory and field trials
    Cost benefits justify use as part of a standard operating procedure, says Stephen Newman.
  • Genomics and Genetics
    Genomics to address disease resistance in tilapia
    Major developments in tilapia genetics has led to a breakthrough in disease resistance to Streptococcus iniae.

Feed Technology

  • Successful business models to meet customer demands
    At TARS 2019, three C-suite aquafeed executives gave their views on developing an aquafeed business.
  • State of industry and challenges at TARS 2019
    Feed industry experts discussed how shrimp and fish farming are shaping the feed business in India and Thailand.
  • Marketing krill meal in India
    Venturing into the Indian aquafeed market requires regulatory approvals and convincing feed producers.

Functional Feeds

  • Bioactive peptides and animal hydrolysate proteins in aquaculture
    Thais Costa Andrade and Wilson Rogerio Boscolo show bioactive functionalities in adult tilapia in Vietnam.
  • Phytogenic feed additive increases low fish meal shrimp feed performance
    Anwar Hasan and Benedict Standen show how active components exert multiple effects while matrix encapsulation strategies stabilise volatile essential oils.
  • Alternative ingredients to satisfy farmers’ perceptions towards feed quality and performance
    Farmers’ choice is feed appearance and feeding activity and aquafeed producer will seek hydrolysates with high standardisation. By Paul Seguin and Clement Martineau.
  • It is not what, but how, commercial sources of vitamins are produced
    Moises John Reyes and Thau-Kiong Chung discuss formulation technologies to improve stability, flowability and homogeneity for required amounts of vitamins in aquafeeds.
