  1. Identifying genetic markers of resistance to POMS (Pacific oyster mortality syndrome)

    SBC: Pacific Hybreed, Inc.            Topic: 9103

    Pacific oyster mortality syndrome (POMS), which is caused by the virus OsHV-1, has devastated oyster farming globally and threatens the $225 million shellfish aquaculture industry on the U.S. West Coast. Lacking typical treatment or control measures, POMS progresses rapidly, causing up to 100% losses; once detected in a growing area, the virus remains and spreads. On the other hand, breeding for P ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. OPEN WORLDS NOAA Portal

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: 9302

    Many people recognize how critical it is to understand our weather, climate, and environment. Educators already use NOAA data and models in working with students and their communities as part of their teaching and outreach. With the exponential growth in data, however, many of them struggle with accessing and managing that data. Evolving data formats and computing requirements make it very challen ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Development of “Permit Wizard” Software for AssistedPermit Application Completion

    SBC: TOTAL QUALITY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 833

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to research the technical feasibility of designing a software tool “Permit Wizard” that will automate the process for aquamarine permit application submittal, review, approval/disapproval and issue (including collection of fees). Aquaculture producers are currently faced with slow, complex, and often confusing permitting processes that must ...

  7. A Blubber- or Dorsal Fin-Piercing Tag Attachment System for Remotely-Deployed Cetacean Tags

    SBC: American Benchmark Machine Works            Topic: 824

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Animal-borne electronic instruments (tags) are critical tools for monitoring the behavior and ecology of cetaceans, providing data needed for managing their populations and mitigating the threats they face. Although remote-deployment of tags onto cetaceans that cannot be captured has provided valuable data, attachment durations have been frustratingly short and variable. Our Ph ...
