HEADLINE NEWS


Four global competitors enter “Fish-Free” fish oil race
Four contestants have officially joined the race to replace the “fish” in fish oil. The global competitor who sells the most “fish-free” fish oil for aquaculture that meets the challenge criteria by August 31, 2019 will win the US$100,000 grand prize. Veramaris is currently in the lead with the most oil sold.

PERU - Second season anchovy landings exceed 63% average
Anchovy landings of the 2018 second fishing season in the North Central zone of Peru have exceeded by 63% the average of the last three years, with a total of 2,050,000 tons. The National Fisheries Society (SNP) established last November global quota of anchovy for this zone and this season in 2.1 million tons, after having estimated in 7,160,000 of tons the level of the biomass, 22% above the average of the last years.

New sources of omega-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids. A review
DHA and EPA supply has been an issue in aquaculture. In this review scientists evaluate two main options for de novo production of EPA and DHA. Microalgal products such as  AlgaPrime™ (corbion), DHA DHAgold™ (DSM Nutritional Products), DHA Natur™ (ADM Animal Nutrition), ForPlus™ (Alltech Coppens), Nymega™ (Heliae Development) and Veramaris® Oil (Veramaris) and genetically-modified oil producing organisms, particularly oilseed crops as Camelina sativa (Rothamsted Research/UoS), Latitude™ (BASF/Cargill), Aquaterra™/Nutriterra™ (CSIRO/Nuseed/GRDC) and Yarrowia lipolytica (DuPont) have the potential to supplement the existing supplies of fish oil and fish meal.

Requirements of antioxidants in gilthead seabream larvae
The negative effects of oxidative damage on larval development, growth and survival are among the factors markedly affecting marine fish larvae production success. Marine fish larvae are exposed to a high oxidative risk derived from the high polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) contents of diets and larval tissues, the high metabolic rates, the large surface to volume ratios of larval diets, the long permanence of diets in the rearing water, light and aeration conditions, etc. Therefore, marine fish larvae seem to have high dietary requirements for nutrients with antioxidant functions.
An international group of scientist from Norway, Spain and Egypt determined the potential interactions between the dietary levels of antioxidants, vitamin E plus vitamin C and Taurine, on survival, growth, bone development and oxidative metabolism in gilthead seabream larvae.
Results suggest that the requirements of vitamin C and E in marine fish larvae seem several times higher than in fish in the grow-out phase. Marine fish larvae seem to have requirements of taurine above what is present in rotifers and formulated larval diets. The present study identified interactions between taurine and vitamins C+E in gilthead seabream larvae. These interactions affected growth, survival, redox regulation, bone metabolism and the development of bone anomalies.

Influence of differential protein levels of feed on pacific white leg shrimp in a biofloc–based system
A 130-day culture experiment was performed to compare the effects of rearing Litopenaeus vannamei in a biofloc system and conventional autotrophic system, supplemented with diets having graded protein levels on growth performance, non-specific immune response and immunomodulatory activity. The experiment groups consisted of four protein-level treatments with four replicates each, and was performed in 16 experimental units (7.5-Tcapacity) stocked with juvenile L. vannamei (initial average weight 1.48 ± 0.4 g) at a density of 150 juvenile shrimps /m3. Biofloc-based groups fed with supplementary feed containing varying levels of crude protein (CP) BFT40 (40% CP), BFT32 (32% CP) and BFT24 (24% CP), and a control group (CP 40%), were maintained in an autotrophic system. At the end of the experimental period, there was an improvement of 32.6–52.6% in terms of productivity, 22–27.6% average body weight; 8.7–19.6% survival rate and 10–31% feed conversion ratio (FCR) in shrimp maintained in biofloc systems as compared to control. Similarly, the protein efficiency ratio (PER) in biofloc treatment groups was32 to 83% higher than control. The shrimp also showed higher resistance to disease in the biofloc treatment when challenged with pathogenic Vibrio parahaemolyticus, as survival of juveniles was significantly higher (p < 0.05) in the biofloc treatments than in the control group. The total hemocyte count and proPhenoloxidase activity were significantly increased in the biofloc treatments when compared to control. The mRNA profiling of important immune genes in the shrimps showed higher levels of expression in the 32 and 40% CP feed treatments. Superoxide dismutase (SOD) mRNA transcript levels were highly up-regulated in the BFT40 treatment (7-fold), moderately upregulated in the BFT32 treatment (2-fold), and downregulated in the BFT24 treatment (0.9-fold). Transcription of antimicrobial peptides like crustin showed significant up-regulation in BFT40 (10.31-fold) followed by BFT32 (6.11-fold) and BFT24 (1.07-fold). Likewise, other immune genes, such as MnSOD, hemocyanin, proPhenoloxidase (proPO), peroxinectin (PX) and serine protease (SP) showed similar trends, indicating immunomodulation in the biofloc groups. We concluded that the biofloc system has the potential to improve growth performance, immune response and disease resistance in Pacific white shrimp in spite of the low-protein supplemented diet.
