Healthy individuals of matured clownfish, Amphiprion nigripes and sea anemone,Heteractis magnifica were collected from the Agatti island lagoon. Larvae metamorphosed and took up parent colouration and comparatively high growth rate was observed when fed on algae enriched rotifer than those with poly unsaturated fatty acid (PUFA)
Health management and biosecurity maintenance in white shrimp (Penaeus vannamei) hatcheries in Latin America
This document provides technical guidance on how to improve the health and quality of postlarvae produced in hatcheries through improved facility maintenance and husbandry, broodstock maturation, larval rearing, feeding, water quality management, biosecurity and health management, using interventions at different points of the hatchery production process.
The manual provides a comprehensive step-by-step guide to running a tilapia hatchery operation.
This document reviews the current state of the Indian shrimp hatchery industry and provides detailed guidance and protocols for improving the productivity, health management, biosecurity and sustainability of the sector
The manual on milkfish (Chanos chanos) broodstock management covers the following topics: reproductive biology; sources of broodstock; holding facilities for broodstock; feeding; determination of gonadal development; spawning and egg collection; transport of spawned eggs; determination of percent viable eggs; and determination of hatching rate...Read More.
The production process described herein is economically viable in Hawai‘i and may also be readily adopted by small family farms in coastal areas throughout the tropics
The manual contributes to the knowledge, identification and interpretation of the most used clinical laboratory tests for all salmon stages and supports the clinical diagnosis of veterinary medical professionals.
Coordinated by FEAP, the FINEFISH (Reduction of malformations in farmed fish species) project manual targets the operators and managers of the hatcheries that raise the major species that are produced in European aquaculture, although there are many protocols and recommendations that are applicable to the many ‘minor’ species that are also the subject of professional attention.
The manual has been divided in two volumes, with this first one divided in three parts. The first part deals with the historical background and a discussion of the main factors that affect fish seed production. The second has been devoted to the life history and biology of the species. This includes also a short section on microalgae, rotifers and brine shrimp. The third section deals with hatchery production procedures, from broodstock management to production of live feed, egg management, larval rearing weaning, fry transport, and diseases.
Seabass and gilthead seabream characterize the development of marine aquaculture in the Mediterranean basin. Based originally on Japanese hatchery techniques, Mediterranean hatchery technology is still evolving. This is Part 2 of a two-part manual.
The manual aims to assist in facilitating and delivering improved technologies to catfish breeders to produce fast-growing and healthy fingerlings for profitable ventures.
The basis of every fish farming operation is successful reproduction and the security of a regular supply of high quality fingerlings. Therefore, Coppens International offers this manual to assist in the set up of reliable hatchery procedures for sturgeon. This booklet contains a general description of the sturgeon biology and describes relevant items for successful repro- duction and hatchery management as known for sturgeon at present. It has to be noticed that the described procedures are only meant as guidelines. All mentioned parameters need to be checked and adjusted by the hatchery manager to the specific sturgeon species, life stage and the particular hatchery conditions.
There are four species of mud crab, Scylla serrata, S. tranquebarica, S. paramamosain and S. olivacea that are the focus of both commercial fisheries and aquaculture production throughout their distribution. They are among the most valuable crab species in the world, with the bulk of their commercial production sent live to market. This is the first FAO aquaculture manual on this genus, covering everything from its basic biology and aquaculture production, through to stock packaging and being ready to go to marke
EN 17399 provides clear and standardized terms and definitions for algae and algae products removing any ambiguity or misunderstanding in the sector.
It is a sister publication to the FISHWELL handbook on welfare indicators for farmed Atlantic salmon that was released in 2018.
