I am on my way to participate in the aquatic China and VIV meeting in Beijing as I write this editorial. In the next issue of IAF we will report this event in detail and the range of topics in aquaculture nutrition from experts around the world and China in particular. This will be my second visit to this great nation and I am looking forward to the coming week with my colleagues from the magazine publishers Roger Gilbert and Tuti Tan.
We have as usual, a most exciting issue for the autumn with a variety of interesting news items and reports from the industry at large and our continuing inclusion of related technology features that link with feed delivery and management issues as well as novel engineering systems bringing new opportunities for aquaculture. This is pertinent for the RAS technology for aquaculture that we discuss.
Given major problems of disease in the global shrimp industry, we report on new strategies to curb such problems by novel feed additives in a controlled scientific challenge study.
Mycotoxins are the stealthy enemy of the animal feed industry with aquafeed being no exception and so opportunities to utilise natural fee based additives as solutions is welcome and we feature the use of seaweed extracts as such agents.
Live feed revolutions in the early hatchery phases are making tremendous progress and a feature illustrates these approaches. Yeast is nature’s word food and a very topical feature reporting on applications of yeast and yeast derived fractions as potent immune modulators in aquafeeds offers a sound perspective for current and future use.
With China in mind it is appropriate that carp is our main fish focus in this issue and the Chinese freshwater fish culture scene. No doubt I will enjoy sampling the delights of China on my latest mission and so I must be catching my flight.
See you in the next edition and good reading till next time!
