SIREHMAX for Maximum Protection Against Bacterial Diseases of Fish

16 December 2015 - SIREHMEX is a unique herbal extract effectively proven as prevention and treatment against common bacterial diseases in cultured fish. It can easily mix to feed and given to fish for maximum protection against bacterial diseases such as Vibriosis, Aeromoniasis and Streptococcosis. Hydrochavicol, the main compound presence in the extract, is responsible for the antimicrobial activit. A dose study using SIREHMAX showed that 100 ppm of the extract offered maximum protection against bacterial disease.

Survey on the Awareness, Acceptance and Preference of GIFT Tilapia in Malaysia


09 March 2017 -The aims of this survey are to evaluate the consumer awareness and acceptance towards GIFT tilapia in Malaysia and consumer preference of GIFT tilapia compared to red tilapia. The result of previous study on the acceptance of Gift tilapia among the Malaysian farmers indicated one of the main factor cause their interest not to culture GIFT tilapia is due to the unappealing physical appearance that make it less demand compared to red tilapia. This survey was conducted from 2-4 December 2016 during the “Malaysian Agriculture, Horticulture & Agro-tourism (MAHA) 2016” exhibition using a set of questionnaires and sensory evaluation test. The results showed that more than half of the respondent (62.5%) is not aware of the presence of GIFT tilapia. More than 80% of the consumer participated in the acceptance test like all of the GIFT attributes. There is a significant preference (P<0.05) among the consumers towards appearance, taste and texture of the red compared to GIFT tilapia. The promotion of GIFT Tilapia should be increased in order to accomplish the Department of Fisheries Malaysia (DOF) target to produce more GIFT tilapia.



Short Term Storage of Groupher's Sperm


January 2020 - Production of marine aquaculture has been increased year by year, but the problematic issue in broodstock quality (sperm, eggs, gamete) still remains.  In order to solve the problem, a sperm cryopreservation protocol was developed to supply sufficient gamete for the future. Sperm Cryopreservation and post thawing protocol are still in the improvision phase to reach sufficient grouper sperms stocks for short and long term preservation. The objective of this study is to find the best extender, storage method and dilution ratio for short storage sperm. An effective protocol was established by comparing the different solutions of the extender. The motility (MOT) between sperm diluted with extender and fresh sperm was compared and recorded daily.  The result indicated that the best dilution ratio sperm to the extender is 1:4. The motility of sperm in ASP lasts for 33 days for giant grouper (Epinephelus lanceolatus) and 23 days for tiger grouper (Epinephelus fuscoguttatus). As a conclusion, using ASP as an extender with a ratio of 1:4 is the best protocol for short term sperm storage.
