A ULPGC thesis on the nutrition of sea bream shows that genetics and parental nutrition modulate the metabolism and growth of their offspring, a finding that could be applied to humans in the future

The research, which was presented on 2nd of February and watched by around thirty people through OpenULPGC, has been presented by the Chinese student Hanlin Xu, supervised by the directors of the University Institute of Sustainable Aquaculture and Marine Ecosystems (IU-ECOAQUA) of the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC), Prof. Marisol Izquierdo, and Prof. Juan Manuel Afonso, head of the Aquaculture Research Group of the mentioned university institute.

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more effective vaccines to alleviate the use of antibiotics is urgent, as there are few formulas and many have become outdated by the rapid evolution of the genetics of fish and also pathogens.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

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
