Award List:

Non-Marine-Based Fishmeal and Fish Oil Replacement Strategies for the Production of Aquaculture Feed

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: Robert A. Bullis, Director of Animal Health
Award Amount: $49,999.00
Abstract:
If aquaculture is to become an increasing contributor to the food supply, it is critical that aquaculture feeds become less reliant on marine-derived fishmeal and fish oil as the preferred source of essential proteins and lipids. Not only is the wild fishery from which these products are extracted… More

Protective Probiotic Microbes Against IHNV Infection in Rainbow Trout

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Moti Harel
Award Amount: $78,993.00
Abstract:
Infectious Hematopoietic Necrosis Virus (IHNV) causes a significant proportion of disease in trout as well as in salmon. However, there is currently no commercial vaccine available to easily immunize fish against IHNV. A preventive treatment to reduce these considerable losses would be a significant… More

Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: Robert Bullis, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $199,893.00
Abstract:
If aquaculture is to become an increasing contributor to the food supply, it is critical that aquaculture feeds become less reliant on marine-derived fishmeal and fish oil as the preferred source of essential proteins and lipids.

SBIR Phase I: Continuous Spray-Capture Production System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: John Piechocki, Mr
Award Amount: $99,523.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop of a technology that allows the stabilization of live probiotic bacteria for incorporation into food systems outside the dairy case. A novel microencapsulation solution is proposed that involves pumping viscous liquids… More

Natural and Sustainable Alternatives for Fish Meal/Oil Usage in Atlantic Salmon Feeds

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: Moti Harel, Director of Aquqanutrition
Award Amount: $49,996.00
Abstract:
The aquaculture industry currently consumes 70 percent of the global production of fish oil and 35 percent of total fishmeal. The salmon and trout fish farming sectors alone consume over one half of the world¿s fish oil. And if fish farming continues to grow at the current rate, then by 2010 the… More

Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: John Piechocki, Mr
Award Amount: $467,005.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will develop a technology that allows the stabilization of live probiotic bacteria for incorporation into food products outside the dairy case.

Development of Ara Feed Formulation for Improving Growth and Survival of Atlantic Salmon Smolt

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Moti Harel, Director of AquaNutrition
Award Amount: $80,000.00
Abstract:
In a standard aquaculture practice, smolts are transferred to ocean net pens without sufficient time period for osmotic adaptation, which results in significant losses to the farmer. In addition to high and unpredictable mortality rates, smolts are not able to grow optimally during their first 40-60… More
