Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Stress and metabolic monitoring system to improve fish productionCSIC through the Instituto de Acuicultura “Torre de la Sa l” and the Instituto de Microelectrónica de Barcelona - Centro Nacional de Microelectrónica, and the Universidad de las Palmas de Gran Canaria have developed a novel smart system which warns about changes on the fish behavior responding to external factors which are controllable in a fish farm. The system is a small, less invasive and harmless device that allows fish farmers to identify stressed fish and to perform selective breeding in a more efficient manner. This helps to set more strict and reliable welfare fish standards. Industrial partners dedicated to the manufacture or development of fish farming (vaccines, feed) and/or fish farms monitoring products are being sought to collaborate through a patent licence agreement.

University of Vigo posted this:Procedure for sea urchin embryo cryopreservation and attached bioassayThis sea urchin (Paracentrotus lividus) embryo cryopreservation procedure with attached bioassay has been specifically designed for sea urchin blastula (8 hour development embryo) conservation in liquid nitrogen to be used as out of reproductive season biological supply. This protocol has applications in research, aquaculture and ecotoxicology. The process described is fully developed, from how to obtain blastula embryos from sea urchins, composition and concentration used of the cryoprotecting agent, cryopreservation procedure including the cryoprotecting agent addition and dilution methodology, the seeding temperature during freezing and including a post-thawing viability study The possibility of a sea urchin embryo biobank ensures not only the access to test organism embryos all year round but also access to these embryos in places where it was not possible before either for their distance to the ocean or for the lack of the necessary facilities to maintain reproductive adults in optimum conditions to breed. The development of the bioassay using cryopreserved sea urchin embryos will help overcome the seasonal constraints in application of bioassays to assess marine water quality.
