3273 Intake of Farmed Atlantic Salmon Fed Soybean Oil Increases Insulin Resistance and Hepatic Lipid Accumulation in Mice

Background: To ensure sustainable aquaculture, fish derived raw materials are replaced by vegetable ingredients. Fatty acid composition and contaminant status of farmed Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) are affected by the use of plant ingredients...

3274 Modifying Atlantic salmon behaviour with light or feed stimuli may improve parasite control techniques

The aquaculture of Atlantic salmon Salmo salar faces severe health, environmental and economic concerns caused by the parasitic sea lice Lepeophtheirus salmonis and Caligus spp. An experimental delousing method exists whereby the surface jumping...

3275 Density Effects on Subyearling Fall Chinook Salmon During Hatchery Rearing in Raceways with Oxygen Supplementation and After Release

To determine the effects of hatchery rearing density on fall Chinook Salmon Oncorhynchus tshawytscha released as age-0 subyearlings, we experimentally reared fish at densities of 200,000, 300,000 and 400,000 fish per raceway in Michigan-style...

3276 Effects of temperature and food quality on age and size at maturity in ectotherms: an experimental test with Atlantic salmon

The reaction norm between growth rate, age and size at maturity in ectotherms is widely debated in ecological literature. It has been proposed that the effect depends on whether growth is affected by food quality or temperature (called the...

3278 Relating spatial and temporal scales of climate and ocean variability to survival of Pacific Northwest Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha)

Pacific Northwest Chinook, Oncorhynchus tshawytscha, have exhibited a high degree of variability in smolt-to-adult survival over the past three decades. This variability is summarized for 22 Pacific Northwest stocks and analyzed using generalized...

3279 Using ancient DNA identification and osteometric measures of archaeological Pacific salmon vertebrae for reconstructing salmon fisheries and site seasonality at Dionisio Point, British Columbia

Determining the diversity of salmon species represented in archaeological contexts is critical to understanding patterns of salmon harvesting and consumption, storage practices and seasonal patterns of resource exploitation by precontact peoples...

3286 Water quality and nutrient aspects in recirculating aquaponic production of the freshwater prawn, Macrobrachium rosenbergii, and the lettuce, Lactuca sativa.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of different nutrients and their ability to improve the production of Macrobrachium rosenbergii and Lactuca sativa in a prototype recirculating aquaponic (RA) system. Experimental units...

3287 Weight ratios of the kelps, Alaria esculenta and Saccharina latissima, required to sequester dissolved inorganic nutrients and supply oxygen for Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar, in Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture systems.

Soluble inorganic nutrient excretion from Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar, was estimated using a semi-stochastic nutritional mass balance approach. Oxygen demand was estimated using respiratory quotients. Nutrient contents of the IMTA kelps, Alaria...

3288 Filtration of sea louse, Lepeophtheirus salmonis, copepodids by the blue mussel, Mytilus edulis, and the Atlantic sea scallop, Placopecten magellanicus, under different flow, light and copepodid-density regimes.

Blue mussels consumed similar proportions of copepodids at low and high larval densities, suggesting that they were not saturated at the concentrations examined. Mussels were capable of consuming copepodids under both static and flowing water...

3296 The effect of vaccination, ploidy and smolt production regime on pathological melanin depositions in muscle tissue of Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar L

 The presence of melanin in muscle fillets of farmed salmon represents a considerable quality problem for the salmon industry with major economic concerns. In this study, we have examined the presence of abnormal pigmentation in vaccinated...
