In vitro methods of plant micro-propagation are being considered as a possible solution for the decline in seagrass communities registered worldwide. To achieve successful plant micro-propagation, culture conditions are commonly adjusted empirically within almost species-specific conditions, to comply to the following three conditions: (i) culture...
To determine the effect of long term feeding of diets with high levels of vegetable oils gilthead seabream juveniles were fed for 7 months with several diets containing vegetable oils at two inclusion levels. Anchovy oil was the only lipid source of FO (fish oil) diet, whereas in diets 60RO, 60LO and 60SO, 60% of fish oil was substituted by rapesee...
In the present study 75 g European sea bass were fed for 8 months with different diets (22% dietary lipid content) containing vegetable oils at two inclusion levels. The control diet (Diet FO) contained anchovy oil as the only lipid source; in diets 60RO, 60LO, and 60SO of fish oil was substituted by rapeseed, linseed or soybean oils, respectively;...
Skeletal deformities constitute a major problem for aquaculture industry by decreasing the final value of the fish. An analysis of skeletal malformations in 11,640 fish was performed considering families and triplicates per family. Thirtynine different skeletal abnormalities were detected, such as lordosis, vertebral fusion, absence of one or both...
SUMMARY - Although breeding programmes in aquaculture are scarce, and most of them seek increase in productivity by selecting traits such as growth rate, there is a new approach which seeks to select additional traits with economic or production implications; such as flesh quality or stress tolerance. Thus, there are new selection programmes being...
