Pearl oyster health management : a manual by Melba G Bondad-Reantaso( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pearl oyster industry is a growing multibillion dollar sector of mollusk aquaculture. Pearl farming occurs throughout Australasia, the Middle East and South America. Few species of mollusks possess the ability to produce pearls of gem quality. The South Sea pearl oyster is one of them. Pearl production in the wild is an unpredictable and uncontrolled event which human intervention, through pearl culture, has progressively overcome by improving culture practices. Farming mother-of-pearls shares commonalties with edible mollusk aquaculture. However, the endproduct, pearl production, is unique to this sector. In aquatic production, heal issues are of utmost importance; pearl production is based entirely upon health. The pearl itself is a product of the oyster's immune defenses as a response to soft-tissue irritation. Exploited stocks receive frequent handling stresses which often predispose farmed animals to infection and diseases. Therefore, the importance of health management for pearl oysters is paramount. Today, most disease problems are caused by opportunistic pathogens taking advantage of oysters weakened by the stress of handling, including pearl surgery and sub-optimal growing conditions. Except for the mass mortalities experienced in Japan, the pearl oyster industry have not yet faced the types of epizootics which has impacted mollusk culture elsewhere in the world. Development of the industry will, inevitably, lead to increased risk of disease introduction, spread or emergence. Against such an unwanted future, health management is the critical defense line. The objectives of this technical paper are to: (i) review pearl oyster mortalities and disease problems in order to help design programs aimed at reducing the risks from diseases; and (ii) provide technical guidance to pearl oyster farmers and the industry on management of pearl oyster health so that sector development will be sustainable not only in providing huge employment to communities where pearl farms are located but also contributing to maintain environmental integrity. Pearl oyster farming can serve as environmental sentinels recognizing the fact that pearl oysters thrive only in pristine environment. This publication contains three parts. Part 1 consists of pearl oyster health -- the current interest in it and an overview of the cultured marine pearl industry. Pan 2 on pearl oyster health management consists of seven sections, namely: (a) introduction; (b) general information on husbandry and handling, hatchery production, introductions and transfers; (c) disease diagnostic protocols dealing with field collections of samples, gross external examination, gross internal examination and laboratory protocols; (d) health zonation; (e) disease outbreak protocols; (f) national strategies on aquatic animal health; and (g) references. Certain countries in the pearl oyster producing regions have acquired a great deal of experience in health management of cultured species. Experiences from Australia, the Cook Islands, Japan, the French Polynesia, the Philippines, China, the Persian Gulf and the Red Sea are included in Part 3 which also contains a general review of pearl oyster mortalities and disease problems.--Publisher's description
Surveillance and zoning for aquatic animal diseases by Sharon Elizabeth McGladdery( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document provides recommendations for surveillance and zoning that will be useful for designing national programmes aimed at reducing the risks of diseases resulting from transfers of live aquatic animals. It contains the collective expert opinion and recommendations made during an expert consultation, jointly organized by FAO, the Federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), to determine what surveillance options can best support scientifically valid zonation frameworks. These recommendations are aimed at providing scientific advice to countries building national or regional aquatic animal health management infrastructures
A scientific review of the potential environmental effects of aquaculture in aquatic ecosystems( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Désignée projet sur l'état des connaissances, cette revue de la littérature définit l'état actuel des connaissances scientifiques sur les effets de l'élevage de poissons et de mollusques en mer et de la pisciculture en eau douce et fait des recommandations de recherches futures. La revue, qui se concentre surtout sur les connaissances scientifiques applicables au Canada, les aborde sous trois thèmes principaux : les impacts des déchets (éléments nutritifs et matière organique), les produits chimiques utilisés par l'industrie (pesticides, médicaments et agents antisalissures) et les interactions entre les poissons d'élevage et les espèces sauvages (transfert de maladies et interactions génétiques et écologiques). Les articles sont destinés à un auditoire de scientifiques et de personnes bien informées, notamment des personnes et des organisations participant à la gestion de la recherche sur les interactions environnementales de l'aquaculture

A manual of parasites, pests and diseases of Canadian Atlantic bivalves by Sharon Elizabeth McGladdery( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This manual describes the organisms and diseases regularly encountered in both sick and healthy blue mussels, eastern and edible oysters, soft-shell claims, quahaugs, giant sea scallops, and bay scallops. It also contains information on a number of bivalve diseases from earlier investigations on Malpeque disease, eastern oyster gill turbellarians and hexamitiasis, shell disease of edible oyster, and QPX disease of quahaugs. The manual gives descriptions of how these organisms are identified, a brief background on what is known about them, and their commercial significance

A Scientific review of the potential environmental effects of aquaculture in aquatic ecosystems, vol. II : disease interactions between wild and cultured shellfish by Susan M Bower( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper reviews the available knowledge on the wild/cultured host dynamics of shellfish infectious agents. Topics covered include: addressing the appearance of a new disease; opportunistic infections, which are mainly encountered in contained aquaculture facilities; exotic or non-indigenous pathogens; international transfer of shellfish diseases; and shellfish diseases encountered in Canada on the Atlantic & Pacific coasts. The final section examines gaps in this knowledge and makes recommendations for further research
