One of the positive things about Alaska salmon enhancement hatcheries is that they are often remote. That means a supply of cool, clean water coming from streams undisturbed by development. But that remoteness can also be a negative, when operators are trying to retain staff.
The winners of the 2019 Aquaculture Awards were announced at an event held in Edinburgh, Scotland. The event, hosted by Landward's Arlene Stuart, marked the first time the awards were open to entrants outside the UK.
After the failure of the United States Congress and President Donald Trump to come to an agreement on an appropriations bill to fund government operations (with funding for a US-Mexico border wall being the principal issue), the U.S. government was shutdown.

Debates and good-natured arguments are a normal part of family dinners at the Mallet home in New Brunswick, Canada. Even as a child, Martin Mallet recalls family dinners as affairs where conversations were greatly encouraged. His father, André, has a PhD in Marine Biology so it is not surprising that Martin would end up as a scientist as well.
The decline in post-larval (PL) shrimp survival rate and closure last year of the biggest shrimp hatchery in the U.S. have led some growers to put up their own hatcheries for self-sufficiency.
Joel Sims is a man on a mission. The hatchery and nursery owner in the Philippines wants to elevate the status of African catfish (Clarias gariepinus) as the “new green fish” and the country’s answer to food security.
As the global demand for quality seafood rises, fish farmers are recognizing the need to gain greater control over their operations. More farms are exploring ways to create smarter, more sustainable operations and land-based aquaculture is emerging as a viable way to reduce risk and maximize profitability.
Brothers Peter and Udo Gross have been farming sturgeon (Acipenseridae) at their Fischtucht Rhönforelle farm in central Germany for 29 years, working their way through an initial cost-only decade before settling into a pattern of progressive production which continues today.
Drs. Kurt Gamperl and Mark Fast, from Memorial University (MUN) and the University of Prince Edward Island – Atlantic Veterinary College (UPEI-AVC) respectively, are leading a project that is currently developing new biomarker tools for Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) aquaculture in response to global climate change. Gamperl describes the goal of the program as, “Work[ing] collaboratively with industry to prepare them for rising water temperatures and other changing environmental conditions.”
In November 2013, the Guiuan Marine Fisheries Development Center (GMFDC), a 1.25-hectare, multispecies hatchery in the island province of Samar in the Philippines, was riding high.
Hunter Pearls Fiji has opened a hatchery and research lab in Savusavu, Fiji. The hatchery is able to house 4.5 million black-lip oyster larvae (Pinctada margaritifera) and will help the company recover after the harrowing impacts of increasingly severe tropical storms in recent years. Founder Justin Hunter, however, is keeping mum on much of the details, and with good reason.
A 240,000-fish RAS hatchery is nearing completion at the University of Stirling with the promise of producing research-robust stock for use in future research projects across the United Kingdom.
In the town of Calauan in Laguna, located some 80 kilometers from Manila, a husband-and-wife team received a suggestion to convert their rice farm into a tilapia hatchery.
Since it was built in 2012, the Aquaculture Technology Centre (ATC) Patagonia held the genetic improvement program of Aquachile – which used to be the largest salmon producing company in Chile. Last year, before Agrosuper purchased Aquachile, Danish feed company Biomar acquired 30 percent of this facility and helped turn it into one of the largest experimental stations of its kind.
Cedar Crest Trout Hatcheries lies in Hanover, Ontario, Canada, at the base of the Bruce Peninsula, in the heart of Ontario’s rainbow trout (Oncorhychus mykiss) fingerling production area. This location is perfectly placed to ship fish to Cedar Crest’s primary clients on Lake Huron. In truth, Cedar Crest is four closely placed hatcheries, making Cedar Crest the largest producer of fingerlings in the province. Between the four locations, Cedar Crest produces more than seven million fingerlings each year.
