2008/749 Using the mucosal antibody response to recombinant Neoparamoeba perurans attachment proteins to design an experimental vaccine for amoebic gill disease

This study has provided further knowledge and understanding of the antibody immune response associated with AGD as part of a vaccine development strategy.  Read More

2008/750 AGD vaccine phase III: Sea-based trials, vaccine refinement and commercialisation

The primary objective for this project was to verify the efficacy of a DNA vaccine against AGD and commercialise the vaccine.  Read More

2008/762 Understanding the molecular basis for improved egg quality in maiden and repeat spawning Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) maintained at elevated temperature

This thesis titled ‘Understanding the molecular basis for improved egg quality in maiden and repeat spawning Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) maintained at elevated temperature’ was completed by Kelli Anderson in fulfillment of the requirements of the degree of honours of bachelor of science at the University of the Sunshine Coast  Read More

2009/766 Development of near infra-red method to detect and control microbial spoilage

This Honours thesis titled ‘The development of near infrared spectroscopic method to detect microbial spoilage communities in the Atlantic Salmon (Salmo salar)’ was completed by Nthabiseng Beta Tito in fulfillment of the requirements of the Honours Degree of Bachelor of Science at the University of Tasmania.  Read More

2010/731 Discovery and manipulation of Neoparamoeba perurans aquaporins as a means to treat Amoebic Gill Disease (AGD)

Amoebic gill disease (AGD) is the number one health concern related to the production of Atlantic Salmon hence the need to explore options that may provide relief to AGD.  Read More

2010/741 Synopsis of AGD research to date and review/recommendation of future AGD related R&D directions including the development of a vaccine for AGD

This project was proposed to undertake a comprehensive review of amoebic gill disease (AGD) research conducted to date, to produce a single document encapsulating what has been attempted and what has worked. As a result of this review, a 2011R&D strategy has been developed by the Tasmanian Salmon Growers Association (TSGA).  Read More

2010/771 Alleviation of Summer Gut Syndrome in Tasmanian Atlantic Salmon

This project investigated the impact of two commercially available diets and environmental water temperature on the hindgut bacterial populations of farmed Atlantic Salmon.  Read More

2011/701 Atlantic Salmon gastrointestinal health and productivity

This project was fundamentally designed to assess and find solutions for "Summer Gut Syndrome" (SGS) in Tasmanian Atlantic Salmon. The focus of the study was to better understand Atlantic Salmon gastrointestinal (GI) microbiology and to connect this data to growth performance, diet formulations and in-farm processes for rapidly assessing salmon with low appetite.  Read More

2011/702 Pathogenesis, prevalence and persistence of pathogenic bacteria associated with farmed Tasmanian Atlantic Salmon

This thesis examined the presence and persistence of potentially pathogenic bacterial populations in farmed Tasmanian Atlantic Salmon (Salmo salar L.) and assessed their dynamics as a factor of seasonal water temperature and diet.  Read More

2011/735 An evaluation of the options for expansion of Salmonid aquaculture in Tasmanian waters

This project aimed to assess the existing and emerging options for the expansion of the Tasmanian Atlantic Salmon industry. It also aimed to develop a risk-based model to assess the viability of production expansion options and undertake an options analysis; making recommendations for further evaluation. These recommendations were then tested by employing engineering / environmental modeling, and the preferred option(s) were evaluated in pilot sites applications.  Read More

2011/771 Genetic selection for amoebic gill disease resilience in the Tasmanian Atlantic Salmon breeding program

This project aimed to determine the level of genetic variation within the Saltas selective breeding program population associated with a number of resilience traits and examine cost-effective and non-destructive traits that may be applied to broodstock within the program.  Read More

2012/716 RNA interference (RNAi) as a means to control Neoparamoeba perurans, the causative agent of amoebic gill disease (AGD) (Paula Lima)

The main purpose of the study was to use functional and comparative genomics approaches to investigate whether the RNAi mechanism has been retained or lost in species from the Neoparamoeba genus.  Read More
