NSERC Industrial Biocatalysis Network

2014/15-2018/19 • $5,150,000
Oil and gas are converted to plastics, chemicals, and other industrial and consumer products through energy-intensive manufacturing processes. These products would be more environmentally sustainable if they were made from renewable resources, such as agricultural and forestry waste, and if they...

Understanding host-pathogen interactions between Atlantic salmon and saprolegnia parasitica in order to develop new approaches for disease management

2014/15-2017/18 • $366,000
Growth in global fish production is due almost entirely to the increase in fin fish production by aquaculture, representing more than 41% (63.6 million tonnes) of total fish production for human consumption in 2011 (FAO, 2012). The largest cause of economic losses in aquaculture is from fish...

Responses of sea lice to novel parasiticides and their differing modes of action

2016/17-2017/18 • $270,390
Salmon lice, Lepeophtheirus salmonis (Copepoda: Caligidae), are important ectoparasites both ecologically and economically. Sea lice cause multi-million dollar losses to the marine salmon aquaculture industry each year, and can negatively impact wild stocks of salmonids as well. Over the past...

Novel antibiotics for treatment of bovine mastitis / Nouveaux antibiotiques pour le traitement de la mammite bovine

2014/15-2016/17 • $387,500
Recently, our research led to the discovery of a new antibiotic target for bacteria. This new target is an RNA molecule with a regulatory function (a guanine riboswitch) apparently essential to certain bacteria causing infections in animals. We also identified a small drug-like molecule able to...

Developing and optimizing cell lines to study and control emerging viral diseases in farmed Atlantic Salmon: the HSMI and PRV case

2014/15-2016/17 • $347,176
Fish represent one of the most healthy sources of food in the world; yet, capture fisheries are declining. In the future, aquaculture will likely supply most fish. As a result, fish farming has become a valuable economic activity, but maintaining aquaculture is challenging. One challenge is...

Effect of targeted selective treatement with closantel at lambing on Haemonchus burdens on Ontario sheep farms with anthelmintic resistance

2014/15-2015/16 • $65,944
Haemonchus contortus is increasingly being recognised as a significant constraint to sheep production on pasture in Ontario; it is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in lambs and adult sheep from the effects of profound anaemia and hypoproteinemia. Recent work in the province has...

Combating Winter Ulcer Disease in Canadian Industry

2015/16 • $25,000
Winter ulcer disease has mainly affected salmonids in Norway and Iceland, but also in Scotland, the Faroe Islands, Canada and Ireland. Outbreaks occur most commonly in Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar L., but also in rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss (Walbaum). The Gram-negative bacterium,...

Effect of targeted selective treatement with closantel at lambing in haemonchus burdens on Ontario sheep farms with anthelmintic resistance

2013/14 • $51,173
Haemonchus contortus is increasingly being recognised as a significant constraint to sheep production on pasture in Ontario; it is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in lambs and adult sheep from the effects of profound anaemia and hypoproteinemia. Recent work in the province has...
