This study is the first to investigate the effects of post-ovulatory ageing (POA) on both diploid and triploid Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.). Following ovulation, female broodstock were partially stripped periodically (at 0, 5, 10, 15 and 20 days post-ovulation, DPO), creating five groups of ova with differing durations held in the body cavity. Survival and bone architecture were negatively impacted by increasing POA, irrespective of ploidy, and an increase in individual growth variation w...
The Norway lobster, Nephrops norvegicus, is an important representative of the benthos and also supports valuable fisheries across Europe. Nephrops are susceptible to infection by Hematodinium sp., an endoparasitic dinoflagellate that causes morbidity and mortality. From an epizootiological perspective, the Clyde Sea Area (CSA; west of Scotland) is the best-studied Hematodinium–Nephrops pathosystem, with historical data available between 1988 and 2008. We have revisited this pathosystem by cu...
Since first being identified in 1999, disease outbreaks from Edwardsiella ictaluri remain a significant health challenge for the farmed catfish sector in Vietnam. To better understand the population structure of E. ictaluri circulating in Vietnamese striped catfish (Pangasianodon hypophthalmus) farms, this study aimed to investigate the genetic diversity of 83 E. ictaluri isolates recovered from natural disease outbreaks occurring in the Mekong Delta region between 2001 and 2021. Pulsed-field...
The economic cost of salmon louse (Lepeophtheirus salmonis and Caligus rogercresseyi) infestations in the Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) industry has been estimated to be around $900 million annually. This high cost has driven a concerted effort to develop, examine, understand, and implement various methods for louse control. Husbandry interventions utilising warm water exposure have been highly successful in complementing traditional chemotherapeutants, especially as the efficiency of the lat...
The blue mussel (Mytilus edulis) and the Mediterranean mussel (Mytilus galloprovin- cialis) are the primary bivalve species in Europe, with France and Spain being the top producers. In recent years, Scotland has also seen a significant increase in mussel pro- duction due to a higher settlement of mussel larvae onto suitable surfaces, which is crucial for cultivation. However, despite the growth of natural spatfall, limited re- search on mussel farming methods in dynamic areas has led to ...
