In recent years, the aquaculture industry has exhibited significant growth worldwide. Disease management is central to a sustainable industry, however there are few markers for general “health performance” and infection. To ensure continued growth, precision-based aquaculture is needed that exploits innovative approaches based on sound biological knowledge.
Our fish antibodies are readily available to aid in researching fish health and infection at critical time points of development. Immune assays to important commercial species are already being generated. Measuring and charting key targets values will prove beneficial in determining disease state or the effectiveness of treatments and the overall health of farmed fish.
