New and more effective drugs to treat psoriasis and anaemia using zebrafish as a model

The Research Group on Immunity, Inflammation and Cancer of the University of Murcia and the Murcian Institute for Biosanitary Research (IMIB) presented the results of their work at the Third International Conference on Fish and Molluscs Immunology, with two formulas that will soon be patented by the industry and which, in addition to reducing side effects, as demonstrated by pre-clinical studies, will have lower costs for those affected

The consumption of aquaculture products will soar in the coming years to counteract the environmental damage caused by the livestock industry

The search for more effective vaccines to alleviate the use of antibiotics is urgent, as there are few formulas and many have become outdated by the rapid evolution of the genetics of fish and also pathogens. Specialists are looking for new tools associated with molecular biology and encourage captive breeding with sustainable systems that reduce the impact on the planet to a minimum

The aquaculture sector in the Canary Islands moves around 38 million euros

In the waters of the Canary Islands, sea bass and sea bream are mainly reared, and pilot crops of corvina, medregal, tilapia and sole have been made.  With these species, mainly affected by pathologies of bacterial origin, different lines of research are being carried out by the IU-ECOAQUA of the ULPGC focusing on the reinforcement of their immune system during the larval and fattening phase

New vaccines development key to the future of the global aquaculture industry

More than 200 researchers in Gran Canaria are looking for new research formulas to boost the immunisation of fish, molluscs and crustaceans. The aim is to favour prevention during the breeding of these aquatic species in fish farms through the administration of vaccines, as opposed to the use of antibiotics when pathologies have already occurred. There are currently only 24 licensed vaccines available in the market to protect a sector that moves more than 207,000 million euros per year in the world and that is in continuous growth as the main source for human consumption
