Growth Hormones in Aquaculture

Aquaculture is the cultivation of aquatic organisms in a controlled environment, which is also known as fish farming. Usually, it is done in coastal ocean waters, freshwater ponds, rivers,etc. The main aim of aquaculture is the production of food for the immensely growing population of the world. Woefully, the ocean’s natural productivity is almost done, … Read more

Coral Reef Bleaching

Coral reefs are large structures, found in deep seawater which is made up of skeletons of the marine specie called coral (a class of marine invertebrates). Generally, hard corals (hermatypic) forms reefs by extracting calcium carbonate from the sea to create a rigid, long-lasting exoskeleton for the protection of their soft sac-like body. These invertebrates … Read more

The Need For Automation In Aquaculture

Automation is a kind of technology to maintain efficient production in many global industrial sectors with minimal intervention of humans. The execution of automation technology helps to improve the productivity, reliability, and efficiency of a process that was maintained and performed by humans. Like in many sectors, automation can bring huge profits and productivity to … Read more

Indian Aquaculture – Factors affecting fish growth

Indian aquaculture is the second largest aquaculture producer and significant industrial sector all over the world. Indian aquaculture is broadly divided into freshwater and brackish water aquaculture production. As per the reports of 2018, the estimated fish production in India was at 6.24 million metric tons (MMT). The fish marketing system in India is highly … Read more

Methods To Control Algal Growth In Aquaculture

Algae are a divergent group of aquatic living organisms that are capable of conducting the photosynthesis process. They can produce oxygen and can consume carbon dioxide thus serves as a base for the food chain of aquatic organisms. The algal body posses simple morphology with chlorophyll and the size ranges from microscopic single-celled to macroscopic … Read more

Genetically Modified Fish (GM Fish)

Genetically modified fish (GM) are those fishes whose genetic material is altered through genetic engineering techniques to introduce desired novel traits. The introduced new piece of DNA is known as transgene. Through the introduction of foreign DNA, the fish gains special traits, which makes them superior to the normal ones in having accelerated growth, increased … Read more

Disinfection Methods in Aquaculture

Disinfection is the process of eradication of disease-causing microorganisms, the chemicals which are employed to eliminate pathogens are called disinfectants. The target range of each disinfectant is different, so one kind of disinfectant can’t kill all the microorganisms. Various disinfection methods are used worldwide to ensure the safety of organisms by reducing the scale of … Read more

Threats to the ecosystem by introduction of GMOs into nature

Threats to the ecosystem by the introduction of Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) into nature Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are living organisms whose genome  is altered through genetic engineering to attain a new trait. The genetic material of the organism can be manipulated through many scientific methods like recombinant technologies and reproductive cloning for the production … Read more

IOT In Aquaculture

Aquaculture is one of the promptly growing and developing sectors of the world. Nevertheless, the intensive fish farming and large-scale productions brought degradation of the water quality and increase of infectious diseases in aquaculture. Hence water quality management is the fundamental factor to flourish an aquaculture sector. The growth of the cultured organism, it’s nutrient … Read more
