Copper sulfate has emerged as an effective treatment for Ichthyophthirius multifiliis, also known as "Ich," a protozoan parasite that appears as white spots on infected fish, according to a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) scientist. Aquatic toxicologist David Straus with USDA's Agricultural Research Service (ARS) investigated copper sulfate as a method to control both Ich in catfish and a fungus"”Saprolegnia"”on catfish eggs. Straus works at the ARS Harry K. Dupree Stuttgart...

New scientific tool assesses impact of global aquaculture Industrial-scale aquaculture production magnifies environmental degradation, according to the first global assessment of the effects of marine finfish aquaculture (e.g. salmon, cod, turbot and grouper) released today. This is true even when farming operations implement the best current marine fish farming practices. Dr. John Volpe and his team at the University of Victoria developed the Global Aquaculture Performance Index (GAPI), an...

As consumers eat more fish as part of a healthy diet, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) scientists are helping producers meet this demand by developing new feeds that support sustainable aquaculture production. Commercial fish farms have traditionally fed feeds that include high levels of fishmeal and fish oil, according to fish physiologist Rick Barrows with USDA's Agricultural Research Service (ARS). But the fishmeal in these feeds comes from small, bony fish species like menhaden,...

The role of a key nutrient which prevents cataracts in salmon has been revealed by eye specialists at the University of East Anglia. Research published today in the American Journal of Physiology - Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology shows how the nutrient histidine, when added to the diet of farmed salmon, stops cataracts (clouding of the lens in the eye) from forming. Following fears over BSE in the early 1990s, blood meal was removed from the diet of farmed salmon. This...

The Walking catfish, Clarias batrachus, also known as the Magur or Pla Duk Dam, is a species of air breathing catfish with the ability to "walk" out of the water and across land. Its "walk" is more like a sort of wriggling motion with snakelike movements, as well as using its pectoral fins as "legs". This fish normally lives in slow-moving and often stagnant waters in ponds, swamps, streams and rivers (Mekong and Chao Phraya basins), flooded rice paddies or temporary pools which may dry up....
