Methane oxidation fuelled by algal oxygen production

Methane emissions are strongly reduced in lakes with anoxic bottom waters. But here – contrary to what has previously been assumed – methane removal is not due to archaea or anaerobic bacteria. A new study on Lake Cadagno in Canton Ticino shows that the microorganisms responsible Continue reading Methane oxidation fuelled by algal oxygen production

Algal bloom linked to motor neurone disease

Toxins associated with blue-green algae blooms in waterways are being investigated as the potenti­al cause of the rapid growth of Australians dying from motor neurone disease.

Researchers working on a suspected MND cluster around the Riverina town Continue reading Algal bloom linked to motor neurone disease

Search continues for alternatives to fishmeal, fish oil in aquaculture feed

NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana — With feed the key cost factor in raising seafood on a farm, the aquaculture industry is continuing its quest toreplace expensive fish meal and fish oil in animal diets.

Scientists are examining the potential for a diverse array of non-traditional ingredients like seaweed, mushrooms and beef tallow in labs across the globe, but the scalability Continue reading Search continues for alternatives to fishmeal, fish oil in aquaculture feed
