NGO’S

BREEDING

Specialized breeding companies of species kept in aquaculture and husbandry as well as in ornamental industry.

What we can do for you

Quantification of stress, chronic stress in particular, can be an added value in selection programs regarding optimal stress resilience. At present, these programs are mainly focused on growth performance and efficiency.

 

FEED

Companies specialized in the production of feed and feed additives for the species kept in aquaculture and husbandry as well as in ornamental industry.

What we can do for you

Quantification of stress, chronic stress in particular, can be an added value in improving fish performance in terms of:

  • Growth rate.
  • Feed efficiency.
  • Survival rate.

Besides optimizing feed constituents, we can also test new feed sources such as plant based materials.

 

HEALTH

Companies specialized in animal health including health promoting additives such as immune-stimulants, prebiotics, probiotics, non-antibiotic growth promotors, vaccines, etc.

What we can do for you

Quantification of stress, chronic stress in particular, can be an added value in the increasing importance of sustainable development as it is one of the most important causes for suboptimal performance, disease, malformation and reduced fish quality. Subsequently, it can contribute to disease prevention, as well as decrease of mortalities and use of antibiotics.

 

PHARMACEUTICAL

Companies specialized in biomedical research using model organisms such as zebrafish (Danio rerio) to test new compounds, therapies, etc.

What we can do for you

Quantification of stress, chronic stress in particular, can be an added value in determining the efficacy of a compound or therapy, as chronic stress influences the homeostasis and subsequently the performance of the organism.

 

PRODUCTION

Specialized production companies of target species kept in aquaculture and husbandry as well as in ornamental industry.

What we can do for you

Stress, chronic stress in particular, has an impact on growth, reproduction, larval quality, health and survival. Subsequently, quantification of chronic stress can be an added value as new species are introduced, production systems are intensified and climate change is become increasingly visible, as well as in optimizing nutritional inadequate or suboptimal feeds, preventing diseases, optimizing water quality, etc.

VERTICALLY INTEGRATED COMPANIES

Are involved in a bigger part of the value chain and control the product from the first stages of animal breeding up to packaging of the final product in the processing plant.
