Award List:

Development of IPN Resistant Commercial Rainbow Trout Stocks

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1996 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Dr. Maura Jansen , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
It is estimated that 3 billion rainbow trout eggs were required to produce the world farmed harvest in 1994. The majority of these fish are reared in areas where infectious pancreatic necrosis (IPN) virus is endemic. Unfortunately, mortalities are highest before the fish are fully immunocompetent,… More

Development of IPN Resistant Commercial Rainbow Trout Stocks

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1998 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Dr. Maura Jansen , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $225,000.00
Abstract:
It is estimated that 3 billion rainbow trout eggs were required to produce the world farmed harvest in 1994. The majority of these fish are reared in areas where infectious pancreatic necrosis (IPN) virus is endemic. Unfortunately, mortalities are highest before the fish are fully immunocompetent,… More

Genetic Basis of Growth Improvement in Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus Mykiss) Using Plant-Based Diets

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: James Parsons, Vice President Tech. Svcs.
Award Amount: $64,929.00
Abstract:
NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Growth in farmed rainbow trout can depend on heritable traits that dictate how fish respond to particular diets. Farmers need more information on identifying growth traits using DNA marker analysis, enabling them to select fish with desirable growth characteristics. Success in… More

Genetics of Growth and Reproduction in Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) Fed a Plant-Based Diet

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: James Parsons, Vice President Tech. Svcs.
Award Amount: $255,695.00
Abstract:
Increasing pressure for the development and use of plant-derived feeds in the culture of salmonid fishes originates from environmental and economic forces. The ability of these fish to efficiently utilize these diets for growth and reproduction, and the genetic variation within populations for these… More

Metabolic and Physiological Response to Sablefish (Anaplopoma fimbria) to Variable Environmental Conditions

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: James E. Parsons, Vice President, Tech. Srvc.
Award Amount: $49,995.00
Abstract:
Sablefish (black cod) is a promising species for marine aquaculture in Washington State because of strong demand, high prices, ease of culture from juvenile stage on, availability of large areas for commercial grow out and interest from commercial, tribal and fisheries cooperatives. But the… More

Improved Spawning, Fertilization, Rearing, and Grow-out Methodologies for the Culture of the Sablefish

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: James E. Parsons, Senior Vice President
Award Amount: $194,855.00
Abstract:
Metabolism and physiology research on the sablefish (Anoplopoma fimbria) conducted in Phase I of this research established that this fish is highly suited to culture conditions typically found in the Pugent Sound or Straight of Juan de Fuca waterways of the state of Washington. In this research,… More

Induction and Utilization of Tetraploidy in Atlantic Salmon as a Reliable Method for Producing Sterile Autotriploid Stock

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: James E. Parsons, Senior Vice President
Award Amount: $75,495.00
Abstract:
The use of sterile, triploid Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) has been suggested by many to be a means of mitigating the perceived genetic impacts of escaped animals on their wild counterparts. The US Atlantic salmon industry has been slow to adopt this technology, apparently due to reduced… More

Autosomal Sex Reversal of Rainbow Trout

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: James Parsons
Award Amount: $76,300.00
Abstract:
The proposed SBIR project seeks to develop an alternative approach to the use of hormone treatment (17 -methyltestosterone) of broodstock for the production of all-female rainbow trout. In the course of normal spawning of large numbers of rainbow trout, Troutlodge personnel have identified rare… More

Induction of Triploidy and Gynogenesis in Cobia (Rachycentron canadum)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: James E. Parsons, Senior Vice-President
Award Amount: $90,975.00
Abstract:
Cobia (Rachycentron canadum) exhibit differential growth rates between the sexes, with females growing faster than males.  Sex determination mechanisms have not been elucidated for this species, nor are there any literature reports regarding the induction of sterility through triploidy or… More

Genetic sex reversal of rainbow trout

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Kyle E. Martin, Research Geneticist – 253-826-0145
Award Amount: $84,329.00
Abstract:
A majority of rainbow trout produced in the US are derived from all-female stocks due to improved harvest traits and efficiency over mixed sex stocks. The development of all-female stocks currently relies on the use of the testosterone derivative 17 & #945; & #8722;methyltestosterone,… More
