  1. Non-Marine-Based Fishmeal and Fish Oil Replacement Strategies for the Production of Aquaculture Feeds

    SBC: ABN            Topic: N/A

    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 at maximum sustainable levels of harvest, but also there is increasing concern that these feedstocks ...

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

    SBC: ABN            Topic: 8110

    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 aquaculture industry could well be using all of the world¿s fish oil and half of its fishmeal. The ...

  3. AER PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A NEW CONCEPT IN PROVIDING WEATHER \FORECASTING FOR INDUSTRY, MADE POSSIBLE BY THE DECREASING COSTS OF POWERFUL COMPUTERS.

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AER PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A NEW CONCEPT IN PROVIDING WEATHER \FORECASTING FOR INDUSTRY, MADE POSSIBLE BY THE DECREASING COSTS OF POWERFUL COMPUTERS. IMPROVED SHORT-RANGE FORECASTS WOULD BE OBTAINED BY RUNNING A MODEL ON THE USER'S COMPUTER. THE MODEL WOULD ACCESS THE FORECASTS OF THE NATIONAL METEROLOGICAL CENTER AND MODIFY THEM THROUGH A DETAILED SIMULATION OF THE PHYSICS OF ATMOSPHERIC PROCESSES,T ...

  4. Formaldehyde and Hydrogen Peroxide Instrument for Flight Based Measurements

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 8314

    Hydrogen peroxide formation represents a loss of gas phase HOx and results in the transfer of atmospheric oxidative capacity to the liquid phase. Measurements of formaldehyde and H2O2 are vital to fully elucidate the atmospheric mechanisms associated with ozone formation and the formation of inorganic and secondary organic aerosol throughout the atmosphere. Tunable infrared differential absorpti ...

  5. Low Noise, High Efficiency InGaAs/InAIAs Avalanche Photodiodes for Photon Counting at 1.55 Micrometer Wavelength

    SBC: COVEGA, INC.            Topic: 8312

    A large area (diameter > 200 micrometer) mesa type InGaAs/InAlAs avalanche photodiode with a novel surface passivation technique is proposed for photon counting at eye-safe wavelength of > 1.4 micrometer. The device is expected to exhibit high detection efficiency, low dark count rate with minimal afterpusling, due to the small k factor of InAlAs gain material and the unique mesa sidewall treatmen ...

  6. Cavitating Jets for Aquaculture Wast Treatment and Recycling

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: 816

    Concentrated aquatic animal production facilities (CAAP) have recently fallen under new EPA effluent limitations. Compliance with these guidelines creates the opportunity to improve effluent and recycled water quality. Cavitation caused by our FYNAJETS and the collapse of micro-bubbles in water is a low energy, high efficiency method of applying thermal and mechanical stress and chemical oxidati ...

  7. NUCLEASE A IN BACILLUS SUBTILIS INTERACTIVE EXPERT EDITING SUBSYSTEM LOW-COST HRPT DIRECT READOUT STATION

    SBC: Genex Corpon            Topic: N/A

    BOVINE PANCREATIC RIBONUCLEASE A (RNASE A) IS A MODEL SYSTEMFOR ESTABLISHING RULES THAT GOVERN PROTEIN STABILITY AND FOLDING. BY LEARNING AND APPLYING THESE RULES, MORE ROBUST ENZYMES OF VARIOUS TYPES COULD BE DESIGNED FOR COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS. SYNTHESIS, CLONING AND EXPRESSION IN BACILLUSSUBTILIS OF A GENE ENCODING RNASE A WILL ALLOW FOR THE ECONOMICAL PRODUCTION OF VARIANT PROTEINS WHICH ARE ...

  8. Head-up Vessel Navigation Using Raster/Vector Data

    SBC: GMA INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: 851

    This project entails a comprehensive approach to developing an innovative solution to heads-up display navigation for marine vessels that addresses the required hardware, the sources of raster and vector navigation and marine charting data, and the means to convey these data to watch standers on the bridge in a manner that enhances their performance. During Phase I we identify specific heads-up d ...

  9. Predictive Modeling of Solar Insolation in the Marine Environment for Solar Power System Applications

    SBC: Irradiance, Inc.            Topic: 831

    We aim to develop analytic tools and instruments to improve performance predictions for photovoltaic power systems on buoys. Using these capabilities, we can design more powerful and reliable power systems and provide NDBC more power to operate offshore data buoys and serve the Nation with enhanced observations of the marine environment. Present day buoy power systems are feasible because they u ...

  10. Nutrient Sensor for Observing Systems

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 814

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will design an optical sensor to provide a cost-effective and ruggedized solution to the detection of nutrient loading for long deployment periods in the ocean environment. The proposed sensor is based on an existing instrument that has been already been developed and has demonstrated the usefulness of using optical methods to determine the nitrate, nitrite, bisulfide ...
