B2E Technological Sonar Initiative #28

February marks another journey through the latest innovations and achievements in aquaculture, blue biotechnology and living marine resources. In this edition of B2E CoLAB’s Technology Sonar, you can discover many new developments. From the application of deep learning to the precise detection of white spot virus in shrimp, to advanced technologies for isolating collagen from fish skin and nasal cartilage, this edition highlights the positive impact of technology on the aquaculture sector.

AQUACCULTURE

Deep learning to improve the accuracy of white spot virus detection in prawns Deep learning, a tool based on the training of algorithms called artificial neural networks, applied in shrimp aquaculture, can improve the detection and accuracy of diagnoses of the most dreaded diseases, such as the white spot virus.

Environmental and biodiversity performance of a novel single cell protein for rainbow trout feed

Seafood has an important role to play to achieve a sustainable food system that provides healthy food to a growing world population. Future seafood production will be increasingly reliant on aquaculture where feed innovation is essential to reduce environmental impacts and minimize feed and food competition. This study aimed to investigate whether a novel single cell protein feed ingredient based on Paecilomyces variotii grown on a side stream from the forest industry could improve environmental sustainability of farmed rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) by replacing the soy protein concentrate used today.

Collagen-including composition derived from fish cartilage

Provided is a technology that effectively uses a collagen-including composition that is derived from fish cartilage.A composition for cartilage protection or a composition for knee joint protection includes, as an active ingredient, this collagen-including composition that is derived from fish cartilage, wherein the collagen-including composition includes type II collagen and type XI collagen. The collagen-including composition preferably has a function of promoting the hyaluronic acid production ability of cartilage cells. Additionally, the collagen-including composition is preferably derived from salmon nasal cartilage.
