A Study to Forecast the Commercial Costs of Farming Turbot and Dover Sole

Not known

The 1975 equivalent report (Technical Report 130) was based on research results obtained from the White Fish Authority’s (WFA) and the Ministry of Agriculture Fisheries and Food fish cultivation programmes. At that time, because, of course, industry’s involvement was not at the commercial stage, several of the important costing parameters had to be taken from fresh water trout farming. Predictions, however, were that such schemes were viable. Since 1975 the WFA’s Research and Development Programme has largely been directed to confirming the predictions and to establishing commercially appropriate costs. During the period, commercial participation has become more active, particularly with turbot.

Study of the UK Fish Canning Industry

D. Edwards

The study examines the UK consumption in canned fish and shows have little is the contribution to this demand from UK sources. Subsidised production overseas is cited as one main reason but there are opportunities for the UK and the report highlights some of these.

Losses of Seed Mussels from Spatted Ropes following their Transfer between Sites 1985/1986

J.D. Paul

A series of experiments was set up during 1985 to investigate losses of mussel seed from spatted ropes following transfer between sites. Batches of differently rigged collector ropes were transferred between Loch Etive and Loch Sunart on 24.7.85, 21.8.85 and 18.9.85.

Scallop Predation by Crabs, in Relation to the Development of On-Bottom Cultivation

J.D. Paul

The feeding success of four species of crabs (Crustacea : Brachyura) which are potential predators of the scallop Pecten maximum (L) was studied under laboratory conditions. Liocarcinus depurator was the only species not to prey on scallops of 4 and 5 cm shell height, whereas Liocarcinus puber. Carcinus maenas and Cancer pagurus showed the greatest potential to prey on scallops and further experiments were carried out with this species using a wide size range of bivalve. Presented with scallops within the range 3-9 cm shell height resulted in the following trends : as prey size increased, the proportion of crabs feeding decreased, male and female crabs showed similar predatory behaviour, and marine fouling on scallop shells had no significant effect on crab feeding. These findings are discussed in relation to the potential for bottom culture of P. maximus.
