'Successfully demonstrated open pond culture of Asian Seabass' 22.5.2018 General News
The Marine Products Export Development Authority (MPEDA) today said it has successfully demonstrated open pond culture of Asian Seabass,which can significantly increase yield of this delectable much-in-demand seafood, with huge export potential. The demonstration was made by the Rajiv Gandhi Centre of Aquaculture (RGCA), the Research & Development (R&D) arm of MPEDA at its demonstration farm at Karaikal in Puducherry. Seabass, which is reared through 'cage culture', fetches a price of more than Rs 400 a kg in the domestic market. Under the open pond culture method, its yield can go up to nine tons per hectare and help small and marginal farmers adopt this method in a cost-effective manner. MPEDA ChairmanA Jayathilak, who witnessed the first catch of huge sizes of Seabass fish (average weight of 1.5 to 2.00 kg) and 1.10 tons being caught in a single haul from the Karaikanal demonstration farm, said it would be the best alternate species for shrimp, which ...

In Madagascar, fishermen plant mangroves for the future 13.5.2018 General News
Hunched over the soil, Malagasy villagers work feverishly -- deft fingers planting stalks of mangrove to replace the swathes destroyed for firewood and building material. In just two decades, Madagascar lost about a fifth of its mangrove forest area, exposing its coastline to the ocean's ravages and shrinking the nursery grounds of crabs and shrimp -- two key exports. With sea levels forecast to rise further due to global warming, coastal villagers are rushing to try and undo the damage, with the help of conservation group WWF. "The ocean keeps rising and rising, and it takes everything with it," lamented 36-year-old crab fisherman Clement Joseph Rabenandrasana, who travelled several kilometres from his home in Beanjavilo to Amboanio on the island's west coast to volunteer in a two-day reforestation drive. Amboanio is a hamlet of about 50 people in the Melaky region, heavily dependent on aquaculture. "The mangrove protects us," said Rabenandrasana, while conceding that: "I used to ...

Jaitpur nuclear power plant poses no nuclear threat: Dr Anil Kakodkar 11.5.2018 DNA: Mumbai
Eminent nuclear scientist Dr Anil Kakodkar has said that the proposed nuclear power plant at Jaitapur would pose no threat to environment or marine life. He stated this while pointing out that nuclear power is the only alternative for the long-term needs of the country. Kakodkar shared his views during a programme organised by Zee 24 Taas and Zee Marathi Disha — 'Manthan' — to mark 20 years of Pokhran nuclear tests in 1998. Following the Pokhran test, May 11 is celebrated as the National Technology Day. Vijay Kuvlekar, Editor-in-Chief, Zee 24 Taas, welcomed Kakodkar and explained that Manthan series has been started to facilitate the exchange of ideas and success stories of men and women associated with the event. Stating that Pokharan tests of 1998 brought India forward as a nuclear power, Kakodkar said that bottlenecks in the nuclear programme and the overall development also came to an end with these tests. He said that as far doubts regarding environmental issues raised about Jaitapur are concerned, ...

Flexible smart patch can help track marine life 7.5.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
Scientists have developed a thin smart patch that can withstand twisting, shearing and stretching, even when exposed to high pressures in deep waters and could make studying the behaviour of marine animals easier and more informative. The patch called Marine Skin is based on stretchable silicone elastomers that can withstand twisting, shearing and stretching, even when exposed to high pressures in deep waters. "The integrated flexible electronics can track an animal's movement and diving behaviour and the health of the surrounding marine environment in real time," said Joanna Nassarm, who was a PhD student in the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia at the time of the research. Being able to monitor and record a range of environmental parameters is vital in the study of marine ecosystems. Yet existing systems for tracking animals in the sea are bulky and uncomfortable for animals to wear. "Using simple design tricks and soft materials, we were able to beat the ...
