2007/224 Increasing profitability of Penaeus monodon farms via the use of low water exchange, microbial floc production

This report investigated the development of production technology for Black Tiger Prawns to increase production efficiency and reduce sediment and nutrient discharge from prawn farms.  Read More

2007/716 Passion for Prawns: Benchmarking Performance

There is a need to grow the Australian prawn farming industry in an economic and environmentally sustainable manner.  Read More

2008/713 Ploidy manipulation of penaeid shrimp to create reproductively sterile, female stocks for commercial production

This study progressively trialled a range of novel techniques to improve triploid inductions in M. japonicus and P. monodon in an attempt to move this technology towards commercialisation.  Read More

2008/756 Increasing seedstock production of domesticated Giant Tiger Prawns

This project investigated whether or not pond-rearing poses a significant risk for broodstock production of the giant tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon). The project also focused on developing an objective measure of ‘male fertility’ that could be used commercially; and which could be employed within a monitoring regime.  Read More

2008/757 Commercial production of all-female reproductively sterile Giant Tiger Prawns: Assessing their commercial performance in ponds

This project aimed to develop a technique that would be suitable for commercial triploid induction (which gives each individual an extra set of their own chromosomes; a process that occurs sporadically in nature) of whole spawnings of the Giant Tiger Prawn. A methodology was developed to induce whole spawn triploidy with temperature and chemical shocks.  Read More

2009/724 Genetic technologies to support a transformation to profitability and competitiveness in F. merguiensis and P. Monodon

This project attempted a “forensic” examination of a prawn selection program with the intention that the information would help make the program more sustainable.  Read More

2009/759 Towards all female P. monodon populations using endocrine manipulations

This study aimed to develop all-female monosex populations of Tiger Prawns in order to offer a competitive advantage in local as well as international markets.  Read More

2009/776 Sustaining Australia’s aquaculture competitiveness by developing technological advances in genetics: Discovery of functional genes for commercial traits

The focus was on F. merguiensis, and the determination of factors that could be involved in colour formation in this species.  Read More

2009/777 Factors that influence customers purchase intentions of Australian farmed prawns from seafood retail outlets

This Honours thesis titled ‘Factors that influence customers purchase intentions of Australian farmed prawns from seafood retail outlets’ was completed by Hannah O’Brien in fulfillment of the requirements of an Honours Degree at the University of the Sunshine Coast.  Read More

2010/705 Evaluation of a PCB bifilar capacitance sensor to measure the concentration of sodium metabisulphite in sea water

This report investigates a possible sodium metabisulphite solution to the common Black Spot Syndrome found on prawns post-harvest, making them undesirable to consumers.  Read More

2010/707 Loss minimisation in farmed prawns through improvements in storage life and colour

This project addressed challenges for the Australian farmed prawn industry that are based on retention of maximum quality of cooked prawns through storage through an effective processing solution developed for the extension of storage life and simple on-farm processing protocols available for industry.  Read More

2010/722 Optimising prawn nutrition for growth performance under suboptimal conditions

The focus of this project was on investigating the effect of nutrition (nutrient balance, ingredient composition, metabolism) under a range and combination of temperature and salinities relevant to Australian prawn farms. This project assessed the overall performance of the prawns exposed to the major environmental challenges encountered in a production pond environment.  Read More

2010/726 Improving crustacean aquaculture production efficiencies through development of monosex populations using endocrine and molecular manipulations

In this PhD study, the role of the androgenic gland (AG) in sexual differentiation was investigated with the aim of achieving all female population in Penaeus monodon.  Read More

2010/786 Australian Prawn Farmers Association: Issues identification paper

This project involved the development of a report to support the strategic direction of the Australian Prawn Farmers Association (APFA) Executive group for the next 12-24 months as well as providing clearer accountability to its Executive members. A total of 29 recommendations are made in the report and some specific issues related to achieving the objectives of the Association were identified.  Read More

2011/728 Enhancing survival in aquaculture (specifically P. monodon) by creating a Heterosigma algal identification unit

Australian Prawn Farms has had numerous problems with Raphidophyte algae that is believed to be Heterosigma. This species is responsible for several mass mortality events over a number of seasons, attributing to approximately 5-10% lower survival across the farm. This project aimed to enable farms to detect Heterosigma very early and thus adopt a management technique to combat it before mortality occurs.  Read More

2011/731 Optimising external colour in farmed crustaceans, using Penaeus monodon as a model species.

This project developed and validated three novel methods to quantify the colour of uncooked or cooked prawns.  Read More

2011/734 Controlling biofouling of pond aerators on marine prawn farms

The project was designed to assist the Australian prawn farming industry improve aeration efficiency through providing farms with new information pertinent to cost-efficient management of their aerator fleet.  Read More

2011/761 Optimisation of viral clearance from broodstock prawns using targeted RNA interference

This project aimed to optimise RNAi methods for clearing or reducing GAV infection loads in P. monodon broodstock and to produce RNAi reagents targeted to PmergDNV.  Read More

2011/766.01 Biofloc: A consultation on the need for and scope of an extension program for the Australian prawn farming industry

The Seafood CRC agreed to facilitate a detailed consultation with Australian prawn farming industry stakeholders to identify concepts for future extension activities.  Read More

2012/733 Driving commercialisation - R & D Workshop, Australian Prawn and Barramundi Farmers Conference, Cairns 2012

The aim of the R & D Forum was to extract key information on the limiting issues that Australian prawn and barramundi farmers currently face.  Read More
