  1. Superior Nutrient Availability, Reduced Metabolic Waste and Increased Energy Efficiency in Aquafeeds


    In November 2011 the worlds human population reached 7 billion. Concurrent role shifts in world economies (e.g., competition for seafood products with China) make it necessary for aquaculture to grow at a pace much faster than previously estimated. In addition, the American seafood trade deficit now exceeds $10 billion per year. Clearly, we are at a point when new technologies are desperately need ...

  2. Development of IMNV Resistant Heritable Transgenic Litopenaeus vannamei

    SBC: TRANSGENADA ENTERPRISES, INC            Topic: 87

    Aquaculture stands as a potential solution for the long-term production of animal protein worldwide and is reported to achieve some of the highest feed-to-protein conversion ratios when compared to poultry, cattle, and pig farming. The shrimp aquaculture specifically, suffers from periodic and devastating disease outbreaks that continually limit crop yields. This effect stifles the development and ...

  3. Improving Hybrid Catfish Production Efficiency Through Triploid Induction

    SBC: BAXTER LAND COMPANY ,INC            Topic: 87

    The profitability of commercial catfish production continues to decline due to increased feed and fuel costs, economic inflation, and increased imports of fish from countries with inexpensive labor and little regulation. In order to compete, catfish producers must become more efficient. Research has shown that hybridization of channel catfish eggs and blue catfish sperm produce progeny that exhibi ...

  4. Ready to Use Therapeutic Food Product to Alleviate Malnutrition in Children Using Insects

    SBC: ALL THINGS BUGS LLC            Topic: 85

    Approximately 178-195 million children world-wide are malnourished. However, only about 3 percent of the 20 million with severe malnutrition receive treatment. Ready to use therapeutic foods (RUTFs) are greatly improving their nutritional status, with success as high as 95%. Animal-derived protein/nutrients are critical for childhood nutrition. However, most RUTFs contain milk as their animal prot ...

  5. A New Approach for Resistant Starch in Wheat

    SBC: Arcadia Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: 85

    The United States is facing increasing levels of childhood obesity that have more than tripled in the past thirty years. With obesity comes a higher risk of related health issues such as diabetes. This project is focused on the development of novel wheat varieties for the production of high resistant starch foods. Resistant starch is considered a form of dietary fiber with beneficial health effect ...

  6. Development of Immunoreagents and Test Kits for the Detection of E. coli non-O157 STEC

    SBC: Abraxis, Inc.            Topic: 85

    E. coli are common bacteria and part of the normal flora of the GI tract. Some strains, including the Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) are able to produce a toxin (Shiga toxin), which can lead to serious human illnesses from mild diarrhea to life threatening conditions, such as hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). A report from the CDC shows that non-O157 STEC infections are more common than illne ...

  7. Fluorescent DNA Aptamer Test Strips for more sensitive and rapid assessment of food safety.

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: 85

    Most commercially available antibody-based test strips for the detection of foodborne pathogenic bacteria are rapid (work in minutes), but not very sensitive. Operational Technologies Corporation (OpTech) aims to improve the sensitivity of such test strips by using higher affinity and more specific DNA aptamers in place of the antibodies. In addition, OpTech will couple its aptamer-based test stri ...

  8. A Particulate Mass Flux Sensor for the Food Process Industry

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 85

    Currently, there is no suitable method of monitoring the mass flux of particulate material such as flour, sugar, chocolate chips, etc. for a continuous production process. Therefore, many of the food products are manufactured using batch processes, with very high inefficiencies and wide variation in the quality of the end product. If a continuous particulate mass flux sensor were available, then f ...

  9. Solar Powered Colony Health Monitoring System for Pollinators

    SBC: NANOSONIC INC.            Topic: 813

    This project will provide researchers a valuable tool to better learn about bees in almost any enviornment. The self contained power through PV panels will allow these hives to be used without the need to an outside powersource. Researchers can monitor stationary hives, as well as commercial pollination operations. Apiarists can also use these hives to gather data and monitor their own colonies. T ...

  10. Tangler Technology, Advanced Mating Disruption that Provides for Rapid and Cost Effective Application

    SBC: RIDGE QUEST INC.            Topic: 813

    Many factors acting together, including concerns about worker safety, food safety, pesticide resistance and new regulations governing pesticides, have heightened grower awareness to reduce insecticide inputs and increase reliance on biopesticides. Foremost among the forces leading to change is the need to reduce input costs in order to maintain economic viability. Mating disruption is among the mo ...
