Cryo-EM Blobology – ultra-high-definition-3D-video-ology

Can’t wait to see shrimp viruses and processes looked at using this technology.

Slices and slide using X-ray crystallography will become redundant older technology.

Has farmed shrimp nutritional profile changed over time?

Over time farmed salmon have shown to have a lowered levels of Omega 3. Addition into diet therefore is important.

Would be interesting to profile wild vannamei to X generation farmed shrimp.

This to see the effect of farming over time – has anything changed? Can feed and genetics help convert shrimp into packaged complete functional food?

Prawnmaster on Guardian UK Prawn article – EJF needs a serious reimagination on shrimp.

Yes a remake of Home Alone, amongst other films, are in the works at Disney.

Re-imagination seems to be flavour of the year.

Sadly the story for shrimp is not being reimagined at all with the same old myths being dug up and used over and over again.

Yes EJF.

Don’t have time or energy to go through this article and point out the factual error assumptions – yet again.

This is regurgitated fake blame/manipulated data – nothing “New” or newsworthy.

Only question for UK shrimp farmer – is it ethical to bring in and grow exotic shrimp from the US even from where it is not even endemic and what with the UK a signatory to the Rio Treaty (CBD)?

Is this not a GMO vannamei Pacific shrimp if from a USA breeding program and also an exotic to the US.

Why get your seed from the US? Apart from the UNOIE/EU live shrimp for culture trade law requirement.

Benchmark plots web of Asian JVs ahead of disease-resistant shrimp release…

Interesting that future developments are notably focussing on shrimp aquaculture.

DNA marking of consumer product to origin and broodstock will give full traceability along supply chain.

All processes at each step need to be transparent as well – for marketing.

Shame shrimp is talked about and picture shows what looks like fish eggs….!
