Mitigating the effects of escaped farmed salmon: combining SNPs, lipid acid profiling and statistical methods to trace escapees to origin

Recently DNA microsatellites have been successfully used to identify individual farmed escaped salmon back to cage of origin. In some cases, however, the information drawn from DNA based markers must be followed with supplementary information from other markers, such as lipid acid profiles. M...

Eliminating duck predation in mussel farms by exclusion nets; development and experimental product testing

Predation from sea-ducks is an increasing problem for the blue mussel industry. Mussel farms constitute an artificial habitat with easily accessible food for several duck species, and large aggregations of birds may, in only a few days, completely empty a mussel farm. A large selection of auditi...
