  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Microbial Enhancement of Flax to Replace Fishmeal and Oil in Salmonid Diets

    SBC: MONTANA MICROBIAL PRODUCTS, LLC            Topic: 8110

    Flax containing omega 3 fatty acids and relatively high protein content offers advantages as a potential source of plant protein and oil to replace fishmeal and oil in aquaculture feeds; reducing both pressure on marine fisheries and the principal source of contaminants in farmed fish. MMP ahs used innovative fungal culture technology in separate processes to develop low cost, multi activity cell ...

  5. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The pressing need exists within industry to accurately measure high aspect ratio microscale structures. For example, diesel injector nozzles are manufactured with microscale holes ranging from 50-200 micrometers in diameter and 3-5 mm depths. One fundamental challenge is to nondestrucvely measure these features in order to validate models, enhance manufacturing processes, and reduce fuel emissions ...

  7. NANOMETER-SIZE STEP HEIGHT TEST STRUCTURES

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    MCNC PROPOSES A FEASIBILITY STUDY AND EVALUATION OF THREE PROMISING APPROACHES TO THE FABRICATION OF SURFACE TEST STRUCTURES ON SILICON. SURFACE FEATURES ON THE FIRST STRUCTURE WILL BE PRODUCED BY CONTROLLABLY ETCHING THERMALLYGROWN OXIDES. FEATURES ON THE SECOND WILL BE MADE BY ETCHING PIEZOELECTRIC THIN FILMS. USING THE PIEZOELECTRIC FILM AS PART OF A CAPACITOR, STEP-HEIGHT CAN BE VARIED AND PRO ...

  8. A SPATIO-TEMPORAL BACKPROPAGATION NEURAL NETWORK APPROACH TOFISHERY STOCK PREDICTION

    SBC: LNK CORP., INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DESIGN AND BUILD A SYSTEM FOR FISHERY AND MARINE MAMMAL STOCK PREDICTION USING NONLINEAR SPATIO-TEMPORAL NEURAL NETWORK THEORY. WHILE THE CENTRAL ENGINE OF THE SYSTEM MAKES USE OFNONLINEAR NEURAL NETWORKS FOR PREDICTION, SEVERAL PERIPHERAL MODULES INCORPORATED IN THE DESIGN ASSIST THE USER IN EMPLOYING THE PREDICTOR FOR VARIOUS APPLICATIONS. IN PARTICUL ...

  9. AUTOMATED USER FEEDBACK AND INFORMATION REQUEST DATABASE DEVELOPED FOR A PC

    SBC: Dvp, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    HISTORICALLY, DATABASE MANAGEMENT HAS BEEN A TASK FOR EXPERTS, AND DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS (DBMS) HAVE RESIDEDLARGELY ON MAINFRAME COMPUTERS. TODAY, HOWEVER, WITH THE TREMENDOUS VARIETY OF USER-FRIENDLY SOFTWARE, THE POWER OF MICROCOMPUTER HARDWARE, AND THE STORAGE CAPACITY OF PERIPHERALS, MANY DATABASES INITIALLY ESTABLISHED ON MAINFRAME MAY NOW PRACTICALLY BE INSTALLED ON PERSONAL COMPUTERS. ...

  10. DIGESTIVE ENZYME SUPPLEMENTS TO INERT FEEDS FOR SMALL-EGG FISH LARVAE

    SBC: International Aquaculture Res            Topic: N/A

    INADEQUATE STARTER FEEDS SEVERELY HOLD BACK NEW AQUACULTURE ENTERPRISES SUCH AS PRESENT ATTEMPTS TO RAISE FISHES WHOSE LARVAE DEVELOP FROM SMALL EGGS AND HAVE VERY "DIFFICULT" FOOD REQUIREMENTS. INERT LARVAL FEEDS HAVE NOT SUCCESSFULLYELIMINATED THE STRICT DEPENDENCY ON NATURAL FORAGE DURING THE CRITICAL POST-LARVAL STAGE AFTER YOLK ABSORPTION AND BEFORE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A DIGESTIVE SYSTEM WITH ...
