Article
Unwanted biofouling and predatory pests are a universal problem threatening aquaculture productivity and profitability. Various control approaches have been trialled, but industry uptake has been elusive due to the typically fine balance between pest and bivalve physiological tolerances (i.e., ‘therapeutic window’) and operational challenges relate...

This report considers the biosecurity risks associated with Undaria aquaculture in New Zealand as shown in Figure A of the report. We describe the basis for pragmatic biosecurity management recommendations. We also provide a contextual overview of seaweed aquaculture and evaluate Undaria as a potential candidate for farming, including life-history...

Multiple human-mediated pathways in the marine environment provide ample opportunities for new and potentially harmful species to spread into high-value natural areas. Often, these areas are remote and reactive measures to an invasion prove to be difficult, therefore a more precautionary and proactive approach is necessary. The Fiordland Marine Are...
Article

Reduced seawater pH and elevated pCO2 are important considerations in tank-based abalone aquaculture, while sea-based farms may be at risk to ocean acidification reductions in pH. Juvenile Haliotis iris (5–13 and 30–40 mm shell length) were reared in two, 100-day experiments at ambient pHnbs (~ 8.1, 450 μatm CO2), pH 7.8 (~1000 μatm CO2) and pH 7.6...
