Providing evidence to improve practice
Collected Evidence: Collected Evidence: Breed for resistance traits A replicated, controlled study in Norway found increased survival levels in salmon exposed to infectious pancreatic necrosis when the family was bred for high resistance to the disease compared to a family bred for low resistance to the disease. Collected, 03 Jun 2013 15:17:27 +0100Collected Evidence: Collected Evidence: Bathe in freshwater Two studies in Australia provide mixed evidence of the effect of freshwater bathing to reducing amoebic gill disease. One study found a reduction in numbers of amoebae on salmon gills persisting for up to 10 days after bathing. One replicated, controlled study found similar levels of amoebae in the gills of treated and untreated salmon.   Collected, 03 Jun 2013 15:31:45 +0100Collected Evidence: Collected Evidence: Aerobic training A randomised, replicated, controlled study in Norway found higher survival rates in salmon exposed to infectious pancreatic necrosis if they had undergone aerobic training. Interval training was more effective than continuous training. Collected, 03 Jun 2013 15:39:10 +0100Collected Evidence: Collected Evidence: Alter lighting A replicated, controlled study in Norway reported lower numbers of lice on salmon kept in low intensity artificial light or natural lighting. The more intense the artificial light was, the higher the number of lice found on fish. Collected, 03 Jun 2013 15:41:00 +0100Collected Evidence: Collected Evidence: Alter cage size A replicated study in Australia recorded lower levels of amoebic gill disease in salmon kept within larger compared to smaller cages.

Another publication from the same controlled study reports that the artificial reefs at both sites were colonised with various species with the potential to remove organic compounds from fish farm effluents.  Collected, 25 Oct 2013 14:01:17 +0100Collected Evidence: Collected Evidence: Eco friendly biofouling prevention A replicated, controlled study in Australia found silicon coated nets accumulated less biofouling organisms which could be more easily removed than untreated nets. Two replicated, controlled trials found that a temperature of 50oC prevented the settlement of actinulae and hydroids on nets  Collected, 25 Oct 2013 15:24:13 +0100Collected Evidence: Collected Evidence: Domestication: sterility/triploidy A controlled, replicated study in Ireland found reduced return of stock but similar weight, length and condition of triploid salmon compared with diploid salmon.  Collected, 25 Oct 2013 15:26:15 +0100Collected Evidence: Individual Study: An evaluation of the use of triploid Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) in minimising the impact of escaped farmed salmon on wild populationsIndividual, 25 Oct 2013 15:39:35 +0100Collected Evidence: Collected Evidence: Dry sludge in beds Two replicated trials in Canada found sludge drying beds removed phosphorus from freshwater fish farm sludge. Collected, 28 Oct 2013 12:43:08 +0000Collected Evidence: Collected Evidence: Establish fallowing to reduce parasites/diseaseA study in Scotland recorded lower lice numbers on Atlantic salmon in cages using a fallowing system. Another study in Australia found no difference in mortality from Amoebic Gill Disease in cages where a fallowing system had been used.Collected, 18 Jun 2014 14:41:41 +0100
