OsHV-1 and notifiable protozoa in healthy Crassostrea corteziensis cultured in two distant areas of the Gulf of California

Infectious diseases have been a major limiting factor for large scale production of oyster farming. Several factors have contributed to the emergence and spread of infectious diseases in all cultivation sites around the world. Therefore, the prevention and control of diseases has become a priority for the sustainability of global aquaculture. Crassostrea corteziensis is a … Continue reading OsHV-1 and notifiable protozoa in healthy Crassostrea corteziensis cultured in two distant areas of the Gulf of California

Metabolomic applications in marine mollusc development and aquaculture

Metabolomics is a rapidly emerging discipline within functional genomics to better understand biochemical phenotypes across a range of biological systems. The approach has many demonstrated applications in aquatic biology, but has not yet been applied to study early lifestages of marine molluscs. This Thesis evaluates metabolomics as an approach to characterise early lifestage phenotypes of … Continue reading Metabolomic applications in marine mollusc development and aquaculture

Mass mortalities of unknown aetiology in Pacific oysters Crassostrea gigas in Port Stephens, New South Wales, Australia

From January to June 2013 and November to January 2014, mass mortalities were reported in Pacific oysters Crassostrea gigas cultivated in Port Stephens estuary, New South Wales, Australia. In some cases, 100% mortality was reported in both triploid and diploid C. gigas, although native species of oyster cultivated in the same areas remained unaffected. Histological … Continue reading Mass mortalities of unknown aetiology in Pacific oysters Crassostrea gigas in Port Stephens, New South Wales, Australia

Future CRC-P : advanced understanding of POMS to guide farm management decisions in Tasmania (project)

Pacific Oyster Mortality Syndrome (POMS) caused by the OsHV-1 virus was first detected in Tasmania in January 2016 with mass mortalities of cultured Pacific oysters on farms in several major oyster growing areas, including Pittwater, Pipeclay Lagoon, Blackman Bay and Little Swanport. Prior to this outbreak, Tasmanian oyster farms produced around four million dozen oysters … Continue reading Future CRC-P : advanced understanding of POMS to guide farm management decisions in Tasmania (project)

Fish diseases prevention and control strategies

This book provides essential information on disease prevention and treatment by the most experienced fish culturists in the industry. The book presents both traditional and novel methodologies of identifying and addressing fish disease risk, along with preventative and responsive insights to the challenges impacting fish production today. Both specific (vaccination) and non-specific (immunostimulation) approaches are … Continue reading Fish diseases prevention and control strategies

People matter in animal disease surveillance: Challenges and opportunities for the aquaculture sector

Recurring epidemics and the emergence of new aquatic diseases are increasingly threatening the growth of aquaculture. The fast pace of aquaculture development and on-going global environmental, social and economic change are challenging epidemiologists in their capacity to surveil and control the spread of diseases and avert losses to farmers and impacts on their livelihoods and … Continue reading People matter in animal disease surveillance: Challenges and opportunities for the aquaculture sector

Risk factors for mortality during the first occurrence of Pacific Oyster Mortality Syndrome due to Ostreid herpesvirus – 1 in Tasmania, 2016

The microvariant genotype of Ostreid herpes virus 1 (OsHV-1 μVar) has caused repeated seasonal outbreaks of mass mortality in Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas) populations in Europe, New Zealand and in New South Wales, Australia. The first occurrence of OsHV-1 related mortality in Tasmania, Australia was in January 2016; mortality was documented and multivariable logistic regression analysis was undertaken … Continue reading Risk factors for mortality during the first occurrence of Pacific Oyster Mortality Syndrome due to Ostreid herpesvirus – 1 in Tasmania, 2016
