  2. Spawning and Hatchery Technology to Improve Hybrid Catfish Fry Production

    SBC: Alabama Catfish Inc. d/b/a Harvest Select Farm            Topic: N/A

    Catfish production, 300 million kg annually, is 70% of all US aquaculture production. In many impoverished areas of the South, this industry is critical for the economic viability of communities. Imports of fish products resulted in a $10.7 billion trade deficit in 2000. Imported catfish now threaten profits of catfish farms. Impediments to sustainability and competitiveness such as, slow growth, ...

  3. User-Friendly Fluorescent Field Test for Pesticides

    SBC: CHEMMOTIF, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase I SBIR program, a novel, user-friendly field sensor strip for the detection of pesticides will be developed. Based upon a multi-layer design to create a highly visible fluorescence upon exposure, it is non-instrumental, single-use test strip that can be deployed and interpreted in an easy and straightforward manner. Upon exposure to organophosphorus pesticides in water, a fluorescenc ...

  5. Use of High Protein Feeds to Improve Feed Efficiency and Water Quality in Channel Catfish Culture

    SBC: Indi-Bel, Inc. dba Delta Western Research Center            Topic: N/A

    The issue of organic and inorganic wastes from aquaculture production have received considerable attention in recent years due to the negative effects these wastes may have on the culture systems and on receiving waters. The primary origin of these waste comes from the feed. Wastes from unassimilated feed and the fish's metabolic process negatively affect water quality and fish growth. One way to ...

  6. Hydrodynamic Pressure Processing Using the Safe, High-Output Tenderizer

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The innovation addressed in this proposal is a low-cost, high-throughput, meat processing technology that substantially improves meat tenderness while killing bacteria. Based upon a developmental concept known as hydrodynamic pressure processing (HDP), the proposed innovation will use intense, underwater shock waves to significantly improve the tenderness of boneless cuts beef, pork and poultry. A ...

  9. Transposable Element-Based, Site-Specific Recombination System for Plants

    SBC: Phytodyne, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Site-specific recombination (SSR) is a powerful tool for studying gene function, and it offers great promise for harnessing the biosynthetic capacity of plants to produce compounds of commercial value. Two limitations to the use of SSR in plants are 1) the low frequency by which it occurs and 2) the difficulty in delivering enough DNA to produce a desired recombination event. Phytodyne Inc. propos ...

  10. Fine Chemicals from Agricultural Residues

    SBC: Plant Polyphenols, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Flavonoids and proanthocyanidins are potent anti-oxidants and have recently found considerable interest in their potential for reducing risks or treatments of heart disease, cancer, and microbial infections. To make further progress in understanding the biological significance of these compounds, it is necessary to provide biologists with gram to kilogram amounts of pure compounds at a reasonable ...
