Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Brood Shrimp Nutrition: Cold-processed, Stabilized, Complete Feeds for Maturation

    SBC: Zeigeler Bros., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Broodshrimp are given natural (wild-capture) foods for maintenance and maturation. This practice causes problems with production schedules and diseases, limits management options, and raises production costs. Conventional feed processing can degrade high quality ingredients-essential nutrients and other natural biochemicals- such that they become ineffective for broodshrimp reproduction. The pu ...

  3. Innovative Energy Absorbing Composite Utility Poles


    Utility poles present a serious roadside hazard due to the large number of poles located in close proximity to the roadways and the unforgiving nature of existing pole designs. Breakaway wooden utility poles have been developed over the past twenty years in an effort to improve utility pole safety, but these designs have not gained widespread acceptance. In order to realize safer utility poles w ...

  5. Development of Monoclonal Antibodies and Elisa to TSV and IHHNV of Shrimp

    SBC: DiagXotics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Worldwide, shrimpculture is one of the largest sectors of aquaculture. The U.S. shrimpculture industry has a value of over $20 million, and the wild harvest of shrimp is valued at over $1 billion. Yet there are few resources available to help manage the health care needs of this economically important commodity. A preventative medicine approach to health care for shrimp is the most cost effecti ...

  7. Automation of Grading and Sticking Vegetative Cuttings

    SBC: Oglevee, Ltd.            Topic: N/A

    Currently the floriculture industry is moving off-shore to reduce labor costs. Automation of labor-intensive operations in floriculture promises to keep U.S. greenhouses competitive. Unfortunately, the U.S. lags behind Europe in the automation of greenhouses and such technology is not readily available in this country. We have identified the propagation of geraniums as an application that is ri ...

  8. Fish Grading/Sorting for Aquaculture Using Ultrasound Techniques

    SBC: Sonic Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project is aimed at the development of a new automatic device (the UltraGraderTM) for size sorting hatchery raised fish. This project provides a system which will efficiently sort and count fish with minimum manual labor without harm to the fish. One novel aspect is the ability to sort and count fish by length or weight by using both photoelectric and ultrasonic sensors. The unique ...
