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 Growth Hormones in Aquaculture

Genetic Engineering In Salmons

Salmons is the most accurate species for genetic engineering because it has a greater consumer demand in the aquaculture industry. Moreover, the percentage of the wild population of normal salmons is pathetically depleting due to environmental pollution, habitat degradation, overfishing, etc. The aquaculture of salmons is in a well-developed manner in almost all temperate countries … Read more Genetic Engineering In Salmons

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 Genetically Modified Fish (GM Fish)

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 Disinfection Methods in Aquaculture

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 Threats to the ecosystem by introduction of GMOs into nature

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 IOT In Aquaculture

Reasons For High Mortality Rate In Fishes

The population of the world is swiftly strengthening every single day, and the demand for food also increased. Fish farming is a profitable business as it can contribute a lot to the growing population, however,  fish farmers are distressed about the high mortality rate in aquaculture and are in search of a solid solution. There … Read more Reasons For High Mortality Rate In Fishes

Carbon footprint and Agriculture

A majority of the world population is skeptical about the fact that the agriculture sector contributes to one-third of the greenhouse gas emission. As per the CGIAR (Consultative Group on International Agriculture Research) reports (2012), the food systems currently practiced worldwide are responsible for 33% of the human-caused carbon footprint. Almost all the processes involved … Read more Carbon footprint and Agriculture
