Environmental and physiological factors shape the gut microbiota of Atlantic salmon parr ( L.).

Aquaculture 2017 Jan;467:149-157

Institute of Biological and Environmental Sciences, University of Aberdeen, Tillydrone Avenue, Aberdeen AB24 2TZ, UK.

Gut microbes are key players in host immune system priming, protection and development, as well as providing nutrients to the host that would be otherwise unavailable. Due to this importance, studies investigating the link between host and microbe are being initiated in farmed fish. The establishment, maintenance and subsequent changes of the intestinal microbiota are central to define fish physiology and nutrition in the future. Read More

Amine reactive dyes: an alternative to estimate membrane integrity in fish sperm cells.

Aquaculture 2016 10 20;463:71-78. Epub 2016 May 20.

Aquatic Germplasm and Genetic Resources Center, School of Renewable Natural Resources, Louisiana State University Agricultural Center, 2288 Gourrier Avenue, Baton Rouge, LA 70820.

Fluorescent dyes that binds irreversibly to cellular amines, come in several available emission spectra, and do not poses health concerns were used to evaluate membrane integrity in fish sperm cells. The objectives of the present study were to determine: (1) a working dye concentration for fish sperm samples, and (2) if the traditional propidium iodide/SYBR-14 staining combination was comparable with the amine reactive dye (ARD) methods at identifying cell populations with intact and compromised membranes after sperm activation, refrigerated storage, and exposure to cryoprotectant and surfactant. Zebrafish () sperm were obtained by stripping, and pooled samples (in triplicate) were used in all tests. Read More

Time-to-response toxicity analysis as a method for drug susceptibility assessment in salmon lice.

Aquaculture 2016 11;464:570-575

Institute of Aquaculture, School of Natural Sciences, University of Stirling, Stirling, FK9 4LA, Scotland, UK.

The salmon louse (Krøyer, 1837) is an ectoparasite causing infections of wild and farmed Atlantic salmon ( L.) in the Northern hemisphere. While control at commercial mariculture sites increasingly employs non-medicinal approaches, such as cage designs reducing infection rates and biological control through cleaner fish, anti-parasitic drugs are still a requirement for effective fish health care.

Optimizing dietary levels of menhaden and soybean oils and soybean lecithin for pre-gonadal somatic growth in juveniles of the sea urchin .

Aquaculture 2015 Sep;446:198-205

Department of Biology, University of Alabama at Birmingham, 1300 University Boulevard, Birmingham, Alabama, 35294, USA.

Dietary lipids serve as important sources of energy and essential fatty acids for aquatic animals. Sources of animal and plant oils are increasingly limited as well as expensive, and dietary requirements associated with the inclusion of these oils must be carefully evaluated to facilitate sustainable and affordable formulations. In this study, we investigated quantities of menhaden oil (MO) with and without soybean lecithin or soybean oil (SO) to determine appropriate levels for optimal somatic growth for pre-gonadal juvenile .

Evaluation of a high-EPA oil from transgenic in feeds for Atlantic salmon ( L.): Effects on tissue fatty acid composition, histology and gene expression.

Aquaculture 2015 Jul;444:1-12

Institute of Aquaculture, School of Natural Sciences, University of Stirling, Stirling FK9 4LA, United Kingdom.

Currently, one alternative for dietary fish oil (FO) in aquafeeds is vegetable oils (VO) that are devoid of omega-3 (n-3) long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFAs). Entirely new sources of n-3 LC-PUFA such as eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA) acids through de novo production are a potential solution to fill the gap between supply and demand of these important nutrients. was metabolically engineered to produce a seed oil (ECO) with > 20% EPA and its potential to substitute for FO in Atlantic salmon feeds was tested.

Aquaculture 2012 Mar;338-341(100):105-110

WasserCluster Lunz, Biologische Station, Aquatic Lipid Research and Ecotoxicology, Dr. Carl Kupelwieser Promenade 5, A-3293 Lunz am See, Austria ; Universität Wien, Department of Limnology, Althanstraße 14, A-1090 Wien, Austria.

This study on aquaculture ponds investigated how diet sources affect methyl mercury (MeHg) bioaccumulation of the worldwide key diet fish, common carp (). We tested how MeHg concentrations of one and two year-old pond-raised carp changed with different food quality: a) zooplankton (natural pond diet), b) cereals enriched with vegetable oil (VO ponds), and c) compound feeds enriched with marine fish oils (FO ponds). It was hypothesized that carp preferentially feed on supplementary diets with the highest biochemical quality (FO diet over VO diets over zooplankton). Read More

Sources of variation in flow cytometric analysis of aquatic species sperm: The effect of cryoprotectants on flow cytometry scatter plots and subsequent population gating.

Aquaculture 2012 Dec 11;370-371:179-188. Epub 2012 Oct 11.

Aquaculture Research Station, Louisiana State University Agricultural Center, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA.

The use of fluorescent staining and flow cytometry to assess sperm quality in aquatic species has increased over the past decade, but comparisons among studies are difficult or impossible due to variation in application, analysis, and reporting of protocols and data.The goal of the present study was to determine the effect of exposure to two cryoprotectants commonly used for cryopreservation of sperm from aquatic species on the accuracy of flow cytometric assessment of sperm quality.Membrane integrity of zebrafish (Danio rerio) sperm exposed to 10% and 20%methanol and dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO)in 300 mOsm kg(-1) Hanks' balanced salt solution (HBSS) or calcium-free HBSSwas determined using SYBR 14/propidium iodide staining.

Feeding preferences of mesograzers on aquacultured Gracilaria and sympatric algae.

Aquaculture 2011 Dec;322(323):218-222

Department of Biology, The American University in Cairo, New Cairo 11835, Egypt.

While large grazers can often be excluded effectively from algal aquaculture operations, smaller herbivores such as small crustaceans and gastropods may be more difficult to control. The susceptibility of three Gracilaria species to herbivores was evaluated in multiple-choice experiments with the amphipod Ampithoe ramondi and the crab Acanthonyx lunulatus. Both mesograzers are common along the Mediterranean coast of Israel. Read More

Post-thaw amendment of cryopreserved sperm for use in artificial insemination of a viviparous fish, the green swordtail .

Aquaculture 2006 Sep 20;259(1-4):403-414. Epub 2006 May 20.

Aquaculture Research Station, Louisiana State University Agricultural Center, Louisiana Agricultural Experiment Station, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70803, USA.

Sperm cryopreservation protocols have been developed for live-bearers such as the green swordtail and the platyfish . Despite the high post-thaw motility (~75%) obtained in both species, the requirements of sperm storage within the female reproductive tract coupled with the process of internal fertilization place functional demands upon cryopreserved sperm samples far beyond those of oviparous species. The purpose of this study was to facilitate the artificial insemination process with cryopreserved sperm of through evaluation of parameters related to sperm quality after thawing. Read More
