Scientists at the University of Gothenburg (Sweden) have revealed that also brown trout have individual characters and show different personalities. Researcher Bart Adriaenssens from the Department of Zoology at the University of Gothenburg has for many years studied the behavior of juvenile trout from watercourses on the west coast of Sweden. "My results show that it are not just humans and other mammals that exhibit personality....

Fast-growing farm-raised salmon and trout that are sterile can now be produced using a method developed by Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists. Blocking reproduction can enhance growth, and is important for fish being reared in situations where reproduction is undesirable. The method allows researchers to more efficiently and reliably produce fish that have three sets of chromosomes, instead of the usual two sets. Fish with the extra set of chromosomes can't reproduce, so the...

Trout and salmon are among the world's most familiar freshwater fishes, but numbers have fallen over recent decades "“ in some areas, dramatically. Pollution, habitat loss and over-fishing have all been blamed in the past, but new evidence from Cardiff University shows that climate change could be a major factor, putting both species at risk. The scientists studied populations of young salmon and trout in the River Wye in Wales, traditionally one of the UK's best angling rivers....

Inhibition of myostatin results in fish with 'six-pack abs' A 10-year effort by a University of Rhode Island scientist to develop transgenic rainbow trout with enhanced muscle growth has yielded fish with what have been described as six-pack abs and muscular shoulders that could provide a boost to the commercial aquaculture industry. Terry Bradley, a URI professor of fisheries and aquaculture, said his research into the inhibition of myostatin, a protein that slows muscle growth, has obtained...

Over a 23-year study, Javier Lob³n-Cerviá has found the mechanism that controls the number of salmonids found each year in Cantabrian rivers. His method has been to monitor population numbers in relation to river flow in March, when the juvenile fish emerge. He concludes that environmental conditions change each year and modify river flow, positively or negatively affecting survival rates. This information throws light on a long debate within ecological theory about the mechanisms...

Researchers funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) have gained a key insight into a disease that is devastating the UK's fish farming industry. The researchers have discovered that fish can harbour and spread proliferative kidney disease (PKD), a cause of major stock losses on fish farms, as well as being affected by the infection.The discovery now paves the way for research to develop effective ways to combat the disease. The research was conducted by...
