SCRC: SCRC Honours Scholarship H3.2 -Impact of acid sulphate soils on the survival of adult Pacific Oysters challenged by bacterial extracellular products (Dr James Harris: Student Joel Kellam-Stock)

This study investigated the impact of short-term exposure to acid sulphate soil leachate on the biochemical condition of the Pacific Oyster Crassostrea gigas. Oysters were exposed to artificially acidified seawater, aluminium and iron treatments for a period of six hours and assessed for changes in...

SCRC: SCRC Honours Scholarship H4.6 Effect of temperature and plant protein inclusion on the growth factor gene expression in Yellowtail Kingfish (Jian Qin; Student Geoffrey Collins)

In this study the suitability of canola oil (CO) and poultry fat (PO) as alternatives to fish oil (FO) was assessed. Furthermore, a real-time RT-qPCR assay to detect hepatic insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) and insulin-like growth factor binding protein-1 (IGFBP-1) was developed. Four isoproteic...

SCRC: SCRC Honours Scholarship H4.10 - Impact of fish oil replacement on the expression of antioxidant genes and genes involved in the synthesis of highly unsaturated omega-3 fatty acids in YTK liver and muscle tissue. (Dr Kathy Schuller; Student Nathan Rout-Pitt)

Fish flesh contains high levels of omega-3 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 LCPUFA) such as eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are beneficial for human health to help brain and neural development, decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease and help various other...

SCRC: SCRC Honours Scholarship H4.5 Improved Yellowtail Kingfish Growth Response, Flesh Quality and PUFA content through Biorefinery Microalgae LC-PUFA Aqua-Feed Additives (Prof Wei Zhang; Student Kopano Maso Machailo)

Yellowtail Kingfish is an emerging aquaculture species, and there is an increase in the demand for the fish, both for recreational fishing and for export purposes. This has led to the growth of the aquaculture industry that specialises in culture of yellowtail kingfish in South Australia. Currently...

SCRC: SCRC Honours Scholarship H3.1– Impact of commercial hatchery practices on the contribution of broodstock to offspring and genetic diversity in the Yellowtail Kingfish breeding program (Dr Alex Safari: Student Daniel Tan)

Using small numbers of broodstock for breeding often leads to random drift in gene frequencies between generations. Effective population size (Ne) is used as an indicator to assess the rate of inbreeding and loss of genetic variation in small populations. In this study we used six microsatellites,...
