Seafood CRC: Commercial production of all-female reproductively sterile triploid Giant Tiger prawns (Penaeus monodon): Assessing their commercial performance in ponds.

Several Australian companies currently have breeding programs producing domesticated and selective-bred Penaeus monodon lines. The most advanced of these lines have demonstrated high commercial pond performance over several generations. However, there is a risk for the breeding program companies,...

APFA IPA: RNAi treatment of broodstock to reduce disease impacts in farmed prawns

Reported here are the outcomes of a project with original objectives to assess (i) the ability of injected double-stranded (ds)RNA antivirals to reduce Gill-associated virus (GAV) infection loads in Black Tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon) broodstock and whether this can (ii) reduce GAV infection...

Seafood CRC: increasing seedstock production of domesticated giant tiger prawns (Penaeus monodon) through improved male fertility

Given the rationale that pond systems are likely the most cost-effective system for large-scale production of Giant Tiger Prawn (Penaeus monodon) broodstock, this project aimed to determine whether pond-rearing poses a significant risk for broodstock production. The gross reproductive development of...

High quality eggs and nauplii for the Australian prawn industry.

Prawn farming is the most valuable aquaculture sector in Queensland and is a priority development industry for the State Government. Marine prawns have provided the major growth in this industry with a value of $37 million in 2000/01, or over 66% of the value of Queensland aquaculture. Nevertheless...

Seafood CRC: optimisation of viral clearance from broodstock prawns using targeted RNA interference

Economic losses due to diseases mostly caused by viruses remain a major obstacle to realizing the production potential of prawn aquaculture industries in many parts of the world. Broodstock used in prawn hatcheries in Australia are generally managed quite intensively and numbers used are generally...
