HEADLINE NEWS

Studies show dietary protein-to-lipid ratio is key for performance in salmon
Results from recent trials have demonstrated that protein-to-lipid ratio is key for performance in farmed salmon. The trials were led by Nofima Scientist Jens-Erik Dessen, who studied how protein and fat content in feed affects the growth, feed utilization, health, quality and fat deposition of farmed salmon. This work was done to identify good balances in the dietary protein-to-lipid ratio related to different seasons and periods with high risk of viral diseases such as pancreas disease.

High levels of mycotoxins detected across the U.S. in Alltech’s 2018 Harvest Analysis
Harvest samples from across the U.S. that have been submitted to the Alltech 37+® mycotoxin analytical services laboratory in 2018 show high levels of mycotoxins, particularly deoxynivalenol (DON), zearalenone, fusaric acid, fumonisin and HT-2. “Mycotoxins thrive in changeable conditions, with lack of rain, excessive rainfall or, sometimes, one after the other causing a perfect storm of contamination. The extreme weather events that we’ve seen this year around the world have led to increased occurrence of mycotoxins in many countries.”

NEWS BRIEFS

INDIA - Manipur to establish state-run fish feed manufacturing mill
The government of Manipur has announced plans to setup a state-run feed mill to produce fish feeds. Manipur requires 52,000 metric tonnes of fish feed to be self sufficient against the 32,000 metric tonnes of fish produced by the state in a year. According to the state fisheries secretary, a mill with a capacity of producing 170 kilograms of fish feed per hour will be installed by March 2019.

RESOURCES, PAPERS & PUBLICATIONS

Adding value to ragworms (Hediste diversicolor) through the bioremediation of a super-intensive marine fish farm
The treatment of organic-rich effluents often represents an economic burden to marine and brackish water fish farms. The ragworm Hediste diversicolor, an euryhaline polychaete, displays a remarkable trophic plasticity and can readily be used in sand filters to bioremediate the load in particulate organic matter (POM) present in such effluents. These organisms selectively retain in their tissues valuable nutrients that would otherwise be lost to the environment, namely an important polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) for marine fish and shrimp nutrition – docosahexaenoic acid (DHA, 22:6n-3). Ragworms cultured using these effluents display an enhanced nutritional value, when compared to conspecifics collected from the wild, and thus may easily commend premium market prices if traded for maturation diets for fish and/or shrimp broodstock.

SUPPLIERS’ NEWS

Study shows ŸnMeal™ improves feed efficiency, weight gain, and gut health of European seabass
The Aquarium of the Pacific has released a report on a forum it convened titled: Aligning Stakeholder Communications for U.S. Marine Aquaculture at the Aquarium of the Pacific. The forum’s goal was to expand responsible marine aquaculture in the U.S. by facilitating the communication of accurate information to consumers, regulators, policymakers, and the public. The forum concluded that the long-term sustainable solution to creating a safe, secure, and sustainable global food system to feed a growing population is developing an integrated program of responsible land-based agriculture and ocean-based aquaculture.
