Aquaculture is the fastest-growing food production sector worldwide, and it is essential to ensure its sustainability. Water quality plays a crucial role in the survival and growth of aquatic species, and maintaining optimal water quality is a significant challenge in aquaculture. In this article, we will explore the difficulties associated with water treatment in aquaculture [...]
Name: Suphannika Saetang Region: Chiang Mai, Thailand Farm Name: Saetang Tilapia Farm Suphannika Saetang runs a family-owned tilapia farm in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Like many aquaculture farmers, she faced the challenge of maintaining good water quality in her fish ponds. Poor water quality can lead to low survival rates, stunted growth, and disease outbreaks, which [...]
Introduction: Aquaculture, the farming of fish, is a critical industry that meets the growing demand for fish worldwide. Ensuring the industry is sustainable, profitable, and efficient, it has turned to technology and research. Fish farming, also known as aquaculture, is a rapidly growing industry, contributing over 50% of the fish consumed by humans comes from [...]
Introduction Aquaculture is a rapidly growing industry that provides a significant source of protein for human consumption. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), aquaculture accounts for nearly 50% of the fish consumed globally, and its contribution to global fish production is projected to reach 53% by 2030. However, to maintain healthy and productive [...]
Rice is the most consumed staple food in Asia. As the world population increases, so does food demand. The least expensive way to keep up with population growth is to increase rice output wherever possible. The difference between current and potential yields is still very substantial in many rice-producing nations. Consequently, efforts should be directed towards determining the root causes of this difference, particularly in the production variables and various aspects of crop management.
The growth of the aquaculture industry has been increasing over the past few decades to overcome environmental damage and low productivity. The need for increased disease resistance and the development of aquatic organisms has brought about using probiotics in the aquaculture industry.
The importance of gut health in aquaculture is recognized widely. Fish’s digestive systems are the direct outcome of the stable, desirable gut bacteria. The optimum gut microflora impacts feed efficiency, performance, and overall productivity.
Phytoplankton is an essential constituent of the marine food chain and comprises 40% of the total fixed global primary productivity. Out of 5,000 species of marine phytoplankton in the world, 7% are responsible for algal blooms, including diatoms, dinoflagellates, raphidophytes, prymnesiophytes and silicoflagellates. Out of 7% algal bloom, 2% of phytoplankton species are toxic, and dinoflagellates contribute 75%. The occurrence of blooms is spontaneous; their growth and persistence are a combination of physical, chemical and biological factors interacting in unpredictable ways.
It’s no secret that the world’s fish stocks are in a poor state. Overfishing, trawling, ocean pollution and climate change have led to depletion in the number of fish in our oceans. Subsequently, the oxygen levels in our oceans have also decreased. Some scientists have even speculated that by 2048 there will be no fish left at all. So, could farmed fish be the solution?
