  1. Captive Reproduction, Hatchery Research and Production of Endothermic Pacific Bluefin Tuna Juveniles:Toward Responsible Pacific Bluefin Tuna Mariculture in the United States

    SBC: Ichthus Unlimited, LLC            Topic: 87

    Tuna ranching is dependent on wild-captured fish and the current operational model is largely unsustainable as it increases fishing pressure on the Pacific bluefin tuna (PBFT) wild stock. Recent ISC (International Scientific Committee for Tuna and Tuna-like Species in the North Pacific Ocean) assessments indicate that this stock is "alarmingly overfished", while experiencing high exploitation rate ...

  2. Development of a biological insect control agent using a sterilizing virus

    SBC: Lepidext L.L.C            Topic: 82

    In 2016, the U.S. planted 94,004,000 acres of corn with a value of $51.5 billion. Unfortunatelyhalf of the sweet cornplanted in the U.S. is unsalable due to corn ear damage caused by insect pests. Because of insects, $30 per acre of corn was spent on pest management or lost to damaged crops in 2003. If that figure is currently accurate, then over $3 billion was lost to insect control or damage in ...

  3. Broadly protective porcine Streptococcus suis vaccines

    SBC: PATHOVACS INCORPORATED            Topic: 83

    Non-technical SummaryCurrently, there are no efficacious vaccines to protect piglets against disease caused by the emerging zoonotic (transmissible from animals to humans) pathogen, Streptococcus suis. Porcine S. suis disease is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in weaned piglets and is a significant economic burden on pork producers globally. Losses to the pig industry globally are in the ...

  4. Enhanced Radiation Attenuation Medical Gloves

    SBC: EnergyEne Inc.            Topic: 88

    High margin, low volume, specialty rubber product markets are critical to early stage commercialization of guayule natural rubber, a domestic rubber source. Current guayule production is too small to achieve economies of scale and cannot compete in the low cost, high volume, commodity markets. This project exploits the unique mechanical properties of guayule latex to develop the first radiation at ...

  5. STEM lesson creation coaching framework to improve the pedagogy of K-5 teachers implementing the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)

    SBC: StarrMatica Learning Systems, Inc.            Topic: 86

    High-quality schools positively influence the economic development prospects in rural areas by attracting business and industry to the area and producing the educated labor force that is needed to sustain economic growth. The greatest source of a highly educated population in rural areas is native individuals who attended college locally or who return home after completing their education elsewher ...

  6. Virus-like-particle (VLP) vaccine for chicken infectious anemia.

    SBC: LARAD Inc.            Topic: 83

    The human population relies on food animals as a major source of high quality protein. Maintaining the health of these animals is of critical importance to good human nutrition worldwide. Chicken anemia virus (CAV) is an important immunosuppressive pathogen of poultry. We are proposing to improve vaccines and diagnostics for this pathogen to improve animal health. Chicken infectious anemia (CIA) i ...

  7. USDA SBIR PHASE II- SCICAST: Stimulating Community Involvement by Cultivating Screencast Technologies

    SBC: Inquiry Technologies, LLC            Topic: 86

    Rural educational systems continue to show alarming trends with regard to lower student achievement, higher drop-out rates, a declining tax base, less parental support, and fewer school resources. Consequently, rural students typically have less access to lab facilities, fewer Advanced Placement (AP) and distance-learning course offerings, and fewer opportunities to get additional academic help at ...

  8. Customizable Science Informational Texts to Support K-5 Teachers Implementing the Common Core and NGSS

    SBC: StarrMatica Learning Systems, Inc.            Topic: 86

    Today's elementary teachers must address the needs of an increasingly diverse population of students--ranging from those who enter their classrooms reading at many years below grade level to those who are many years above grade level. This discrepancy is often the most profound in rural school districts. This impacts teachers' abilities to help students acquire strong skills in reading--fo ...

  9. A New Nano-Based Detector for the Indian Meal Moth, Both Adult Insects and Larva

    SBC: SENSOR DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION            Topic: 85

    The problem of losses due to insect and microbiological pests does not end in the field or with the harvest. The problem persists into the storage phase where the value of raw commodities is reduced by direct damage. Thus sensing and eliminating insect pests must be accomplished to ensure not only the retention of maximum value of the crop but also to permit the safe movement of agricultural commo ...
