Recent advances in DNA vaccine technology has brought about a promising
strategy for the control of viruses that contain surface membrane glycoproteins. This type
of vaccine involves the intramuscular injection of a bacterial plasmid containing a gene
encoding a viral protein. The strategy uses eukaryotic processing of the protein as...
The effects of a sublethal concentration of dieldrin (0. 2 ppb)
in the water on the growth and body composition of underyearling rainbow
and cutthroat trout held in aquaria and fed different rations of tubificid
worms or Oregon moist pellets were studied at Oak Creek Fisheries
Research Laboratory, Oregon State...
The nephrotoxicities of the aminoglycoside antibiotics tobramycin (TBM) and netilmicin (NTM) were studied in rainbow trout (Salmo gairdneri) to determine the usefulness of salmonids as a sensitive animal mode for investigating the nephrotoxic potential of these agents. Logit analysis revealed that 8-12 day i.p. LD 50's in rainbow trout for...
Aflatoxin B₁ (AFB₁) is a mold-produced toxin which has been shown
to be a potent hepatocarcinogen in many animal species. Of the
species studied thus far, rainbow trout have proven to be the most
sensitive. Experiments were conducted to investigate various aspects
of AFB₁ metabolism in this species, including in...
Triplicate groups of rainbow trout (Salmo gairdneri) fed six
diets; five based on fish protein concentrate (FPC) ranging in caloric
density from 4.36 to 6.19 kcal/g, and one based on vitamin free
casein with a caloric density of 5.26 kcal/g were evaluated with
respect to diet ingredient utilization. The parameters...
This study was conducted to investigate the accumulation of dietary polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB's) by a Mt. Shasta strain of rainbow trout (Salmo gairdneri). A commercial mixture of PCB's (Aroclor 1254) was added to the diet at a level of 15 ppm on a dry weight basis. Accumulation of PCB's was...
The fundamental objective of this analysis was to isolate and
identify the factors governing the demand for domestically produced
rainbow trout in a representative west coast market, and assess the
impact on that demand, if any, of the introduction of pansize salmon.
The approach taken in this market demand study...
The rainbow trout population in Elder Creek, Oregon was
studied between June 1965 and November 1966. The physical characteristics
of the stream during the summer season were described.
Rainbow trout were captured in each of three sections on the stream
by electrofishing and were tagged and measured. Population size,
