6th International Symposium on Genomics in Aquaculture

Researchers and students of Nutrigenomics and Fish Pathology groups of IATS have attended the 6th International Symposium on Genomics in Aquaculture, held in Granada (May 4-6). They have participated in three oral communications. Beatriz Soriano presented SAMBA (Scanning Aquaculture Microbiome via Bayesian Approach), an application based on Bayesian networks intended to predict changes in the […]

XIII Workshop de la Sociedad Española de Microbiota, Probióticos y Prebióticos

Prof. Jaume Pérez-Sánchez was invited by the Spanish Society of Microbiome, Probiotics and Prebiotics to give a conference at their XIII Workshop, held in Valencia (June 7-9). His talk was focused on the latest group results in National and European Projects, regarding the interplay of mucosal microbiome composition of farmed fish with culture conditions, nutrition […]

Gut microbiota and host transcriptome interaction for adaptation of fish to fish meal-free diets

Researchers of IATS Nutrigenomics and Fish Pathology groups, in collaboration with enterprises Sparos (Portugal) and Adisseo (Portugal) have recently reported in Aquaculture the notable results achieved in terms of growth and sanitary status of gilthead sea bream fed fish meal devoid diets, based on principles of circularity and resource utilization in the framework of EU […]

AquaIMPACT EASTalk webinar: Fish and gut microbiota dialogue (video available)

La Sociedad Europea de Acuicultura (EAS) ha celebrado un nuevo seminario web dentro de la serie EASTalk. El seminario centrado en los resultados  del Proyecto Europeo AquaIMPACT ha servido para poner poner de manifiesto la estrecha comunicación de los peces en cultivo con su microbiota intestinal. AquaIMPACT integra información de los efectos de la  nutrición y selección genética  sobre la composición y […]

Government of Spain approves the “PERTE Agroalimentario” Project, which will generate hopefully up to 16,000 jobs, 5,400 in the Valencian Community. The presentation ceremony of the PERTE Agro Valencian Project was held at the Palau de la Generalitat las March 1st, and it was attended by the President of the Generalitat and the Counselor of […]

GAIN project milestones in Aquafeed magazine

The first 2022 issue of Aquafeed magazine is focused in the most remarkable advances in alternative ingredients for cultured fish, an includes a technical paper (pages 37-39) summarizing the  main outcomes of European GAIN Project on the use of eco-efficient aquafeeds using emergent ingrediente. It focuses on trials conducted in salmon, gilthead sea bream, rainbow […]

Gut microbiome as an important tool for the evaluation of cultured fish performance

The study of the composition of the gilthead sea bream gut microbiome is becoming a relevant item in the “omics” technological offer of IATS Nutrigenomics and Fish Pathology groups. Along 2021, this tool has been of importance to assess the effects of probiotics, feed additives and alternative protein sources in aquaculture feeds. This has resulted […]

Hypoxia and exercise performance in fish

Researchers from the Nutrigroup of IATS-CSIC have targeted the mild-hypoxia driving force for metabolic and muscle transcriptional reprogramming of gilthead sea bream juveniles, focusing on blood metabolic landmarks and muscle transcriptomics before and after exhaustive exercise. These results after mild-hypoxia conditioning highlighted an increased contribution of lipid metabolism to whole energy supply to preserve the […]

Insect larvae meal as a sustainable feed ingredient in aquaculture

A recent collaboration between IATS Nutrigenomics group and CIIMAR from Porto University (Portugal) has highlighted the feasibility of high replacement of fish meal in aquaculture diets with insect-derived meal. The effect of fish meal replacement by defatted mealworm (Tenebrio molitor) larvae meal in European sea bass aquafeeds was tested, evidencing that it was possible to […]
