Live crab surprise found in chilly bin at Auckland Airport - New Zealand Herald

An airport quarantine officer was shocked to find eight very large and very much alive crabs in a chilly bin from Samoa.

The Ministry for Primary Industries staffer removed the individually wrapped crabs from a passenger's luggage, to find they were still moving.

The crabs had been bought at a market in Samoa, and the passenger had declared them as food upon arrival at Auckland Airport earlier this month.

"They were individually wrapped in thin plastic. The officer emptied the chilly bin and noticed one of the bundles move. Upon opening the wrapping, he found the crabs were bound in twine and were very much alive," MPI border clearance manager Craig Hughes said.

Hughes said it is forbidden to bring live marine products into New Zealand for consumption.

"The crabs could have been released into New Zealand waterways. They could have harmed local marine life and introduced unwanted diseases - so we're talking about a very real biosecurity threat."

He said MPI often saw dead crabs coming through the border, but live ones were fairly unusual.

First get to know it under:

Ichthyophthiriasis southern winter and spring fish common disease, especially puffer fish, catfish, grass carp grid, loach and other more serious harm. If not treated in time, improper handling mortality of up to 90%, due to low water temperature, water pollution is not easy to deal with, changing the water difficulties and other reasons, often makes farmers suffered heavy losses.

Ichthyophthirius genus golden eyes, mouth membrane suborder recess families, more children Ichthyophthirius. Its size and the size of the larvae and adults are very different.

Adults generally spherical or near spherical, body length of 0.35mm ~ 1.0mm, body width is 0.3mm ~ 0.4mm. Parasites flexible to deform the body densely covered with short and uniform cilia. In front half of th

Missions alert for the detection of plants with HLB | I superfield

The National Health Service and Food Quality (Senasa) continues its preventive actions against Huanglongbing (HLB) in the area of ​​contingency in the province of Misiones.

Under the National Program for Prevention of HLB (PNPHLB), agents Senasa detected a commercial establishment in that province, with citrus plants grown in a nursery without protection against the insect vector, representing a high risk of being affected by the HLB to be located in an area near the border with Paraguay, an area considered high exposure by the presence of the pest in that country.

Also, subsequent monitoring activities determined that the establishment was affected by HLB, as were detected numerous positive plants, so the Senasa established a specific work plan for the eradication of the pest, in accordance with the new regulatory framework established by Law No. 27333.

POLAND - Poland is one of Europe’s biggest grain producers. Its farming sector has changed dramatically since it joined the European Union (E.U.) more than 10 years ago.

According to the Main Statistical Office, Poland, the production of wheat, rye, mixed grains, triticale, barley, corn and oats is forecasted to increase by approximately 6 % to 29.5 million metric tons in 2016/17. This is because of the better than average yield expectations compared to the lower yields of 2015 which were due to the unfavorable summer weather conditions. The total acreage for grain plantings is estimated to be 3% higher than in 2015.

Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites produced by filamentous fungi that cause a toxic response (mycotoxicosis) when ingested by farm and companion animals. Fusarium, Aspergillus and Penicillium are the most abundant moulds that produce these toxins and contaminate human foods and animal feeds through fungal growth prior to and during harvest, or during (improper) storage (Bhatnagar et al., 2004).

Guangdong Province in November Aquaculture Disease Prediction - Sina

 

Guangdong in November into the winter, air temperature, water temperature gradually decreased, larger temperature difference between day and night, to predict the incidence of farmed aquatic animal diseases will decline. Winter, day and night temperature changes intensified, breeding aquatic animals prone to greater stress response, is apt to cause disease, should be appropriate to enhance the breeding water, reduce temperature changes of water bodies. Product specifications have reached the variety, to do the harvesting market ready to pay attention to the harvesting dragnet when the impact on aquatic animals, avoid mechanical damage caused by the occurrence of disease, and in a timely manner disinfection. Need wintering species, breeding management should grasp the safety of winter varieties, take the roof insulation warming or add equipment, be prepared in advance, and promptly put into breeding​

China advice to farmers: Early detection and prevention of parasites

 

China Fisheries channel reported, parasite breeding aquaculture very common problem, its impact is very large.

Parasites breeding process: a small amount of long-term stress - increased mucus, respiratory obstruction - feed conversion rates rise, deterioration of water quality - increased stress, decreased immunity - the breeding of parasites - feed utilization accelerated decline, water quality worsened, namely infection bacteria, parasites increased, decreased growth rate, reduced food intake or anorexia.

The breeding of parasites is generally divided into three stages:

The first stage is the stage of stress. This stage is not easy to detect, but there will be a slight water quality characteristics, such as: the grass near the pond aerator or dirty easily, increasing the viscosity of water, bubbly and so on. This multi-stage method using bacteria culture or change clear gills bottom can effectively prevent the breeding of parasites. Early stressors are multi-faceted, characterized in that the long-term existence of hidden and difficult to detect. But it will lead to breeding animals discomfort, increased mucus, respiratory obstruction, feed utilization rate, further deterioration of water quality.

Common stressors are: 1. waste caused by changes in water quality feed. 2. previous question process is not complete, a temporary solution, sequela. 3. After bad weather, not treated or treated inappropriately.

The second stage of the breeding stage parasites. If regular inspection, it can be found. If at this time to deal decisively to deal with the difficulty of small, low risk, small sequelae. If you hesi
