  1. A Tide To Table Traceability and Marketing System for Shellfish Aquaculture.

    SBC: Shellfish Solutions            Topic: 9101

    In 2017 the CDC estimated 35,000 American got sick from Vibrio parahaemolyticus transmitted by shellfish--a 54% increase. However, according to the co-chair of the Interstate Shellfish Sanitation Commission, “Our current system of traceback is inadequate.... Records are lost. Handwriting is illegible. More than half of all traceback investigations fail because the information in the value chain ...

  2. Rapid, Simple Diagnostic for Pathogens in Marine Aquaculture

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 9102

    "Chronic malnourishment globally affects more than 800 million people with an expected population growth of another 2 billion over the next 30 years. Today, aquaculture accounts for nearly 50 percent of the world’s food fish and is one of the fastest growing food-producing sectors. The biggest threat to global aquaculture production is infectious disease. While marine diseases are a naturally oc ...

  3. Underwater Adhesive for Coral Restoration

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 9201

    Coral transplantation is a primary management option for rehabilitation of degraded reefs. Stabilization (via adhesion, etc.) of transplants on existing reef or artificial substrates notably improves their survival rate. Improved underwater adhesives are needed for expedient and convenient stabilization of coral transplants with improved survival rate. A new hybrid organic-inorganic adhesive is pr ...

  4. Coral Adhesive

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: 9201

    Texas Research Institute Austin (TRI Austin) will develop a fast acting, strong, tough, adhesive that will bond underwater without extensive surface preparations. TRI Austin will formulate the adhesive to optimize setup time, establish charge weight for the adhesive to reduce adhesive underwater preparation time, and develop the procedures for using the adhesive to bond coral to reef substrates. A ...

  6. Novel assay for the detection of water-born algae toxins

    SBC: Attogene Corporation            Topic: NOAAOAROARTPO201

    Ciguatera fish poisoning is an illness suffered by > 50,000 people yearly after consumption of fish containing ciguatoxins (CTXs) or exposure to a harmful algae bloom (HAB). Manufacturing of critical reagents to develop assays to detect ciguatoxin have been elusive due to the constraints in production of viable amounts of the toxin. Thankfully, a significant amount of work has been done to demonst ...

  7. Fluorescent Qdot-Antibody or Aptamer Test Strips for Ultrasensitive Algal Toxin Detection

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: 9203

    Nanohmics, Inc. proposes to develop the most sensitive antibody and/or DNA aptamer‐quantum dot (Qdot)‐based lateral flow (LF) test strips possible for detection of harmful algal bloom (HAB) toxins in fresh or saltwater and seafood rinsates. Although commercial colloidal gold‐LF test strips for some HABs and anti‐HAB toxin aptamer DNA sequences already exist, Nanohmics’ innovation of inco ...

  8. Rapid Point of Use Method to Identify Seafood Species

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 9202

    Species substitution with a product of lesser value has become an increasing problem within the seafood industry. Increased international trade, rising consumption rates, and high profit incentives have all contributed to the intentional mislabeling of seafood. While whole, unprocessed fish can generally be identified by their morphological features, processing of seafood makes identification chal ...

  9. Improved still frames and denoised motion imagery from distressed FMV

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: NGA191004

    Producers of imagery intelligence must contend with the distortions and defects in available images. One approach to recovering some the lost spatiotemporal video content during single frame analysis is to use processing techniques that improve spatial quality and resolution of individual frames by exploiting inter-frame correlations. However, the assumptions, enhancement capabilities, and computa ...

  10. Faster Optical Modem for Underwater Data Acquisition

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: NGA182001

    To address NGA’s requirements, Sonalysts’ team of world-class experts in underwater optical communication proposes development and implementation of the Precision Optical Navigation Transceiver for Undersea Systems (PONTUS). PONTUS will transfer navigation information from an Underwater Navigation Beacon (UNB) to an Unmanned Undersea Vehicle (UUV) in an electromagnetic-spectrum-denied (e.g., G ...
