Because of the stagnation of commercial landings, the development of aquaculture activities is expected to rise during the next decades to match the growing demand for fisheries goods. Overall, it is often expected that the aquaculture sector could reduce to a certain extent the pressure applied over wild stocks. However,...
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether
the beneficial effects which the consumption of fish oil
imparts on hemostatic function can be modified by the level
of dietary selenium. Male Sprague Dawley rats were fed for
eight weeks semipurified diets containing 7% corn oil (by
weight) or 5.5%...
Intrinsic characteristics of Pacific sardines were determined. The lipid content
in sardines was initially low (6.79%) in the beginning ofthe season, increased to
22.95% in mid-August, and decreased slightly by the end of September. An inverse
correlation (R² = -0.90) was found between lipid and moisture content. Analysis
The main objective of this paper is to analyze the economics effects that
the Prestige oil spill over (2003) had on the Basque coastal fishing industry
by means of a two-stage stochastic production frontier approach. The first
stage is based on the econometric specification of a parametric production
