Comprehensive outreach and training program to expand development of NCR aquculture

Description

This project proposal will complement the webinar series, and enhance learning outcomes for participants by providing multiple hands-on, advanced aquaculture techniques workshops throughout the NCR. Topical areas for these fee-based workshops will include but not be limited to culture techniques for important NCR aquaculture species, advanced aquaculture systems design and management, aquaculture business and marketing, water quality maintenance, advanced fish health diagnostics and aquaculture regulatory issues.

Chaired by D. Allen Pattillo Read more about Comprehensive outreach and training program to expand development of NCR aquculture

Effectiveness Research Leading to Approvals for Controlling Mortality in Coolwater and Warmwater Finfish Due to Aeromonad Infections with Terramycin 200 for Fish®

Description

Effectiveness research leading to approvals for controlling mortality in coolwater and warmwater finfish due to aeromonad infections with Terramycin 200 for fish® (oxytetracycline dihydrate) and Aquaflor® (florfenicol).

Objectives:

1. Identify the etiologic agent (Aeromonas spp.) from isolates collected from disease outbreaks in the NCR and characterize the disease syndrome before conducting any effectiveness studies.

Determinative Method for the (AQUI-S®) Marker Residue in Fillet Tissue

Description

The objectives of this funded aquaculture drug project are:

1. Interact with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) todetermine the data required to validate a determinative method for the AQUI-S® marker residue in fillet tissue from all species of coolwater and warmwater finfish.

2. Validate a proposed determinative method for the AQUI-S® marker residue in fillet tissue from all species of coolwater and warmwater finfish following Good Laboratory Practices. Read more about Determinative Method for the (AQUI-S®) Marker Residue in Fillet Tissue

Methyltestosterone Feed Stability and Water Biodegradation Studies

Drug Approval Research on 17a-Methyltestosterone

Description

The objectives for the fourth aquaculture drug project, Drug Approval Research on 17-a Methyltestosterone, include:

1.Develop a robust and validated high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and liquid chromatography-mass spectroscopy (LC-MS) method to measure 17α-methyltosterone (MT) in fish feed.

2.Conduct a series of stability studies on MT in fish feed.

3.Gain acceptance from the Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) for the series of stability studies. Read more about Methyltestosterone Feed Stability and Water Biodegradation Studies

Baitfish Funded Project #1

Description

The Baitfish Project was chaired by Dan Coble.  The objectives of the project include:

1. Conduct a comprehensive survey of the status of the bait fish industry in selected north central states to determine: a. species used; b. sizes of species marketed; c. sources of species; d. seasonal availability; e. shortfalls in supplies; f. relative value of various fish and nonfish species; and g. common problems of the industry that may need to be addressed by research.

Baitfish Funded Project #2

Description

This project is chaired by Joe Morris, Iowa State University.  The following objectives are to be addressed.

1. Determine what techniques and strategies for early season, indoor spawning of golden shiners and subsequent stocking into ponds will result in growth to 76 mm (3 in) by November 1 of that year.

2. Develop economically viable culture techniques and strategies for growing spotfin shiners to a market size (greater than 51 mm [2 in]). Read more about Baitfish Funded Project #2
