Increased Sustainability in the Aquaculture Sector in sub-Saharan Africa, through Improved Aquatic Animal Health Management
African aquaculture is growing rapidly. Tilapia and catfish are the two most important farmed fish species on the continent, and in Kenya, specifically, rainbow trout farming has become an important part of the country’s ...
Rapid genomic detection of aquaculture pathogens
Aquaculture is the world’s fastest growing food sector increasingly and is recognized for its potential to alleviate poverty and hunger in small-scale systems. However, progress is limited by diseases and lack of knowledge ...
Rapid visualization in the specific detection of Flavobacterium columnare, a causative agent of freshwater columnaris using a novel recombinase polymerase amplification (RPA) combined with lateral flow dipstick (LFD) assay
Type: Journal Article
Flavobacterium columnare is the causative agent of columnaris, a serious disease affecting numerous freshwater fish species worldwide. Although several molecular protocols have been established to detect this pathogen, ...
Tilapia major clinical signs
The purpose of this poster is to enhance the capacity of hatcheries, nurseries, grow-out farmers and extension service providers to recognize and report tilapia diseases. Prevention, early recognition, diagnosis and rapid ...
Improving Biosecurity: A Science-Based Approach to Manage Fish Disease Risks and Increase the Socioeconomic Contribution of the Nigerian Catfish and Tilapia Industries
Nigeria is one of Africa’s largest aquaculture producers, yet its lack of a clear aquatic animal health strategy has resulted in substantial disease-related production losses. There is little or no biosecurity management ...
Reducing disease risks in fish through better detection, management and prevention
Aquaculture productivity is limited by the introduction and spread of infectious fish diseases, which compromise fish farming livelihoods and food and nutrition security in Asia and Africa. Epidemiological tools provide ...
Vulnerabilities in aquatic animal production
Type: Journal Article
The role of aquatic animals in global food and nutrition security is increasingly recognised. The global demand for fish is increasing, leading to a need to significantly increase its supply. Securing future fish supplies ...
