Determine the effect of PARASITE-S® (formalin), administered to control mortality from saprolegniasis, on the nitrogen oxidation efficiency of the biofilters of recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) for freshwater finfish

Impact of UMESC Science

Data from this study is intended to support label expansion for PARASITE-S® allowing for the use of the drug to control mortality due to saprolegniasis infestations in all fish rearing systems, including recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS).

Relationship between fish presence and abundance in Arizona standing waters measured through standard techniques and environmental DNA

The unpredictability of DNA degradation in the environment has plagued the ability of scientists to interpret environmental DNA (eDNA) data since the technique has been used for early detection of aquatic invasive species (AIS) such as silver and bighead carps (Hypophthalmichthys molitrix and Hypophthalmichthys nobilis) throughout the Chicago Area Waterway System (CAWS), Des Plaines River,...
