Alltech - KSU meeting at Beijing, China

Dr. Vikas Kumar, Assistant Professor/Aquaculture Nutrition was an "honorary guest" recently to attend the Global Alliance Conference in Beijing, China. Alltech has organized a meeting of its Global Alliance Partners in Beijing and the objective of this meeting was to gather all Alliance partners under one roof and to exchange scientific information/discussion, and allow partners the opportunity to engage with other partners from around the globe. Dr. Kumar presented an oral presentation entitled "Alltech - KSU Collaboration: Towards Sustainable Aquafeed Production Using Algal Meal" highlighting past research data conducted at KSU led by Dr. James Tidwell and ongoing research under the supervision of Dr. Kumar.



Currently, Alltech-KSU Alliance has ongoing research at Aquaculture
Nutrition lab led by Dr. Kumar, Mr. Ken Thompson, and Ms. Kristy Allen
entitled "Optimizing the use of algal meal (Schizochytrium sp.) as a fish oil
replacer in the practical diets of Pacific white shrimp (Litopenaeus
vannamei
)". In the meeting Dr. Kumar received a couple of collaborative
research opportunities with Alltech Alliance. Overall, the meeting in Beijing
was a big hit and it appears that it will be a nice springboard to a rich and
active partnership between Alltech and KSU for many years to come.

That is a Big Fish Tank!

 Members of the Ray Lab have been busy setting up a new 6,000 gallon fiberglass raceway tank in the Production Technologies Building.

The large tank was assembled and moved into place, now water lines and filters are being plumbed in preparation for growing brackish-water shrimp. These systems will include a pump-driven aeration system, a foam fractionator, and a settling chamber.

Soon the tank will be filled with water, salt will be added, and about 5,000 shrimp will be placed inside. These shrimp will be grown to a large size of about 20/lb. over the course of three months at which time they will be given to local chefs and supermarkets for production evaluation, cost of production will be determined, and another trial will begin.

Centre College Tours KSU Aquaculture Research Center

Kyle David Anderson, Assistant Professor of Chinese, Chair of Asian Studies at Centre College and other scientists and students toured and visited the Aquaculture Research Center facilities. They also had a roundtable Question and Answer discussion/session. Centre College has launched a new interdisciplinary course on Asia and food production. One of their principal units is on aquaculture and shrimp farming. There were 20 individuals on this tour that Dr. Ray and Ken Thompson conducted.
