A collaboration between Viet-Uc Seafood Corporation and CSIRO of Australia develops improvements in super-intensive indoor shrimp farming technology.
In Australia, CSIRO is investigating techniques to produce reproductively sterile, all-female shrimp populations through polyploidy, irradiation, or genetic engineering.
Super-intensive production system with a whole-of-system approach shows substantial production, economic improvements at Viet Uc shrimp farm in Vietnam.
El sistema de producción super-intensivo con un enfoque de sistema completo muestra una producción sustancial y mejoras económicas en la granja de camarones de Viet Uc en Vietnam.
Expansion of the Bribie Island Research Centre allows agencies to tackle multidisciplinary research tasks to help the Australian aquaculture industry.
The domestication and genetic improvement of farmed prawns has been slow compared to that of some other aquatic species and most terrestrial livestock.
This article from Australia’s CSIRO details the "race" to breed oysters genetically predisposed to resist Pacific Oyster Mortality Syndrome (POMS), a disease that is harmless to humans but so lethal to oysters that it can kill more than 90 percent of a crop of millions of animals within days.
A partnership between CSIRO and the Australian seafood industry has significantly improved the selective breeding of Australian Pacific oysters.
The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation has researched pelleted dry feeds are palatable to juvenile tropical spiny lobsters.
Using clear-water tank systems, CSIRO and a collaborating farm have advanced the domestication of black tiger stocks in Australia.
Australia has a diverse and abundant fauna of local shrimp but only P. monodon, P. japonicus and P. merguiensis are farmed there.
A collaboration of research institutes and industry has mapped the genome of an iconic Australian seafood species, the black tiger prawn.
A pilot study on the sensory properties of Pacific oysters and abalone conducted at the CSIRO Sensory Laboratory in Australia found differences among the samples produced in different growing conditions and regions.
Climate change, shifting incomes and evolving diets complicate the search for solutions to obesity and undernutrition in vulnerable populations.
El cambio climático, los ingresos cambiantes y las dietas en evolución complican la búsqueda de soluciones para la obesidad y la desnutrición en las poblaciones vulnerables.
A shrimp feed management survey indicated that Australian farmers placed a high importance on better estimations of feed demand in improving FCR.
Increasing integration of various disruptive technologies into aquaculture practices will improve productivity and sustainability.
Color can impact the price of shrimp, with dark red preferred in some markets. Research using colorimeters to quantify color in raw and cooked shrimp found that although shrimp raised on white or black substrates exhibited different coloration, total carotenoid levels were the same in all the animals.
