養耕共生-英國CNN

Tasting the future of farmed seafood
嚐ㄧ下未來用養的海鮮
London (CNN) -- If you ate fish for dinner last night, there's a 50% chance it was not caught in the wild.
http://cnn.com/video/?/video/international/2011/03/24/ef.genetic.modification.bk.b.cnn

Aquaculture -- the farming of fish and sea creatures under controlled conditions -- is the fastest growing area of animal food production and now accounts for around half the world's consumed seafood.
According to the United Nation's Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), the fish farming industry increased on average at an annual rate of 6.6% between 1970 and 2008.
Dr Matthias Halwart, senior aquatic officer at the FAO, told CNN that globally we're eating more fish than ever before.

Aquaponics USA

If there was ever a time in the modern era to start growing food--it is NOW. The world-wide financial melt-down, complete with a downgrade of our triple AAA rating, is destined to bring with it hyperinflation and food shortages. Aquaponics is our answer. Aquaponics is a hybrid technique combining the best of aqua-culture (growing fish) and hydroponics (growing veggies without soil), and it’s completely organic because the fish waste is your natural fertilizer and that means no pesticides. Aquaponics USA is dedicated to sharing information, developing products and bringing awareness of this life sustaining technology to every American home because it’s time Americans become Food Independent.
Aquaponics USA--Feeding America, One Family At A Time with our Food Forever™ Growing Systems! We have systems that range from 7.5 to 112 square feet of Grow Bed space and Fish Tanks from 100 to 320 gallons.

2011台灣觀賞魚博覽會

2011台灣觀賞魚博覽會
2011/9/30登場
漁業署表示,為持續推動國內、外觀賞魚市場,9月30日至10月3日在台北世界貿易中心展覽三館「舉辦2011台灣國際觀賞魚博覽會」,除了有各國特色水族的國家館、台灣水族企業形象館,並舉辦全球獎金最高的國際七彩神仙魚比賽、水族器材創意設計大賽、水草造型缸、孔雀魚及水晶蝦等比賽,還有氣勢磅礡的建國百年百尺紀念缸,當然還有採購好康的水族街。此外,基隆市市民廣場也同步舉辦國際錦鯉品評會,全部免費參觀。

藍絲絨蝦全球首見
藍絲絨蝦,透明蝦殼呈現美麗的土耳其藍,將在「2011台灣國際觀賞魚博覽會」中亮相。
身長不足二公分、重量不到幾公克的藍絲絨蝦,全身泛著土耳其藍,身價上萬元;融合神仙魚、孔雀魚與羅漢魚特徵的神仙美人魚,身價上看五萬元。台灣觀賞魚養殖技術一流,透過配種改良,創造身價不凡的水族寵物,都將在台灣觀賞魚博覽會亮相。
今年國際觀賞魚博覽會中,混種魚最吸晴!神仙美人魚貌似羅漢魚,但長長的魚鰭有著孔雀魚的亮麗和神仙魚的飄逸;金紅娘同時繼承錦鯉適合從背部觀賞,與金魚適合側面觀賞的優點;結合水母基因的滿天星螢光魚,被業界暱稱為人間的波妞。
全球首度曝光的藍絲絨蝦是琉璃蝦進化版,透明蝦殼泛土耳其藍,吸睛指數百分百,單尾身價上萬元。新品種巧克力蝦是業者透過搜集蜜蜂蝦、虎紋蝦,加上採自海拔二二八○公尺台灣原生蝦種的大量基因型態,歷經六年改良成功。
新品種魚蝦繁殖成功率低而相當稀有,往往成為玩家或風水缸的首選,色澤穩定性更影響身價高低。以巧克力蝦為例,身價自二千元至一萬二千元,但有些被飼主買回後不久就變成透明蝦!極品巧克力蝦身體不透光,還有巧克力色光澤。
台灣國際觀賞魚博覽會自2011/9/30~10/3,在台北世貿三館展出,現場展出四百萬元打造的「建國百尺缸」,主辦單位已向金氏世界紀錄提出認證申請,可望成為全球最長魚缸。

綠化的一角來養魚

Fish Farms, With a Side of Greens 綠色的一角來養魚Jeff Redmon 報導 Sweet Water Organics, a company in Milwaukee, raises perch and grows leafy green vegetables in a former factory. Aquaponics-a combination of aquaculture, or fish cultivation, and hydroponics, or water-based planting -utilizes a symbiotic relationship between fish and plants. Fish waste provides nutrients for the plants, which in turn filter the water in which the fish live. Cuttings from plant are composted to create food for worms, which provide food for the fish, completing the cycle. “Aquaponics is a method of delivering multiple crops with minimum input, through a closed-loop method of farming,” said Charlie Price, founder of Aquaponics UK, the nonprofit organization that runs the farm. A kilogram, or 2.2 pounds, of fish food, produces at least 50 kilograms of vegetables and 0.8 kilogram of fish, he said. “As the ecosystem becomes self-sustainable, the fish food comes from the worms, so the entire cycle is free.” Mr. Pri…

浮萍

浮萍 Duckweed 學名: Spirodela polyrhiza Schletder
浮萍科
多年生漂浮植物,植物體莖呈葉狀扁平,徑3-6mm長5-9mm基部鈍,先端圓,上面綠色有光澤,下面紫紅色,普通3-4片相連。中央生纖維根十餘條,先端具根帽,由根基處?方萌芽長2~數個連結漸次增生迅速繁殖。
浮萍廣布於暖帶至亞熱帶,中國大陸、日本、馬來西亞、澳洲等地。在台灣全境水田、水池、水溝、自生普遍之水生植物。
以前,農家常會撈取浮萍給鴨鵝等家禽吃,當做免費越營養的飼料,而且浮萍也可以當做野外求生植物和蛇藥,另外因為生長快速又好種,也被視為很好的生物實驗材料。近年來,世界銀行及各國農業研究機構為了改善第三世界落後地區人民貧困的生活,一直在積極推廣一套成本低廉卻收獲豐富的「浮萍農業」:引用家庭廢水來養浮萍,一方面可以淨化汙水;一方面則可以增加浮萍的產量。新鮮或烘乾保存的浮萍再用來飼養豬、鯉魚、鴨、鵝等,多餘的浮萍和這些吃浮萍長大的動物還可以賣錢來增加收入,這真是既環保又省錢,一舉多得的一套農業生產方式,在各國試驗都很成功,也值得我們來學習,或再研發其他用途。

垂直農業

垂直農業
前言
在人口不斷增加,農地面積有限及運輸成本高昂的情況下,鄰近消費市場,用高樓以多層次生產的農業技術:「垂直農業」,成為維護全球經濟發展的重要手段(The Economist Technology Quarterly, 2010) 。這個多層次農業生產的概念應用在水生物的養殖上就叫做「垂直養殖」,在蕭世民博士的實驗室已發展多年並獲得許多專利(請看文獻探討)。本實務專題研究將此「垂直養殖」的發展應用在石斑魚(青斑Epinephelus coioides及龍膽石斑E. lanceolatus)的養殖,設計並組裝出一個有效率的石斑魚垂直養殖設施。
目前的水產養殖事業在土地或廠房的基礎地面,挖掘水池或設置水槽,以其形成約0.5-6公尺深的單層水體進行水生動植物(魚、蝦、貝、藻等類別)的生產。在這個單層水體裏,當養殖的水生動植物具底棲性或附著性時,他們通常選擇棲息或附著在水體底層,使底層成為單一的有效養殖平面,而沒有充分利用到水體底層及土地或廠房基礎面以上的空間。
「垂直養殖」的發展則在一個水體或空間內建置多層次的有效養殖平面,使底棲性或附著性水生動植物的養殖事業增產。這個構想的前例如九孔的多層次養殖養殖,在水體內以九孔養殖盒形成多層次有效養殖空間而達到在單位水體底層及土地或廠房基礎面上增加生產的目的。
為普遍達到此目的,蕭世民博士的實驗室發展下列兩項技術:
1. 水生動植物的淺水養殖,以方便多層水體上下堆疊,增加養殖場區的空間利用。
2. 在同一水體內構建一到多層的生態結構,形成一到多層有效養殖平面。
以岩礁為棲地或在水底棲息的水生物,包括魚類、蝦類、海葵及珊瑚等為例,在具有特定生態結構的養殖水槽中,可生活在十分淺的水中。現有數據顯示白蝦(Litopenaeus vannamei)、吳郭魚(Oreochromis mossambica)、青斑(Epinephelus coioides)及龍膽(E. lanceolatus)等生物均可生活在水深僅4-15公分的環境,分別成長至每尾25g,600g,1,800g,3,000g或更大。以這個垂直型水產養殖的概念為基礎,本專題研究設計及組裝一個垂直型龍膽石斑養殖設施,並實地試驗其養殖石斑魚的功能。

養耕共生年度回顧

Aquaponics, A Year in Review
Aquaponics Project by Chef Ricky
September 8, 2011

Almost a year ago I wrote my first blog about Aquaponics here. In the article I cited a link to a video of an art project called “Farm Fountain” that inspired me to start my first experiment in sustainable, organic, indoor gardening using the natural cycles of bacteria (the nitrogen cycle) to grow food. The term for doing this using fish waste as the fertilizer source is called aquaponics, or AP.

Since then, my blog ( the aptly named “Chef Ricky’s FoodStream” ) has developed into exclusively aquaponics updates and news. My work (and disasters) using indoor aquaponics will be in a book this Oct. I am very pleased by the outcome of the initial experiment. Not only have I learned more about the nitrogen cycle than any biology class has EVER taught me, but I have ended this season with an amazing new group of AP enthusiasts, a delicious bounty of crops, and some plans to make AP in Seattle a more recognizab…

Taiwan Lab Creates Fluorescent Angelfish
Glowing examples of innovative biotechnology. Fluorescent angelfish in a Taiwan laboratory. The Jy Lin Company, Taiwan’s largest exporter of ornamental fish, has for the first time, successfully inserted a fluorescent protein gene into the reproductive organs of medium-sized fish, allowing them to produce radiant offspring. Company spokesman Lin Yu-Ho, explains how the process works for this particular fish family. [Lin Yu-Ho, Jy Lin Company]: “With the medium-sized cichlid fish, its biological cycle cannot be controlled by artificial lighting, plus the low number of fertilized eggs makes collection a challenge. It will take a very long time with the micro-injection method. For species like these, we deployed the method of reproductive organ electroporation. We inject fluorescent genes into the reproductive organs and leave the male and female fish to reproduce on their own, and then they can give birth to fluorescent babies…

DIY環保水池 家門口養金魚

金魚不像錦鯉般耐濁度高、耐溫差大,所以,一般都養在室內溫控的魚缸裡,今年獲得環保局「家戶綠美化」連棟組冠軍的宜蘭縣礁溪國中理化老師陳柏羽,運用所學,DIY在自家門口完成水景花園景觀造景,不僅可以在戶外養金魚,也可以成為親子的戲水池,頗具巧思。

陳柏羽剛搬到宜蘭市名人居時,由於社區居民都會主動做好綠美化工作,眼見他遲遲不動手,還有鄰居主動表示是否需要幫忙,讓他覺得很不好意思,隨即運用所學打造魚池。

宜蘭多地震,為了防止地震可能會讓水池產生裂縫滲水,他採用不鏽鋼材質做水池,還安裝了過濾槽,淨化水質;過濾槽採分段潔水,分別放了濾棉、珊瑚石、粗生化棉及生化陶瓷,其中的珊瑚石就有調整PH值的作用,有助於金魚生存,也有利於金魚避暑。

為了讓金魚可以生存,他還養了半年的水才放魚,池水自此沒有換過水,透過自動化的淨水過濾槽過濾,循環使用,水不浪費,具有環保概念;池邊岩石縫種植了許多植物,還安裝了細水管澆水,讓岩壁產生青苔,透過植物過濾,讓池水保持乾淨。

陳柏羽說,他的規劃概念來自於掌中缸,若找人代工,大約需要30萬元經費,由於都是他自己動手做,耗材大約只花費15萬元;最大的特色是,它是個「懶人花園」,透過全自動自然循環運作,不僅不用澆水、換水,植物也長不快,不用常修剪。

陳柏羽的大女兒經常會脫了鞋子,就跟爸爸坐在魚池邊泡腳戲水,不過,水池裡裝有夜間投射燈,不免讓人起疑,難道不怕漏電電人嗎?陳柏羽說,為了讓孩子安心玩水,他裝了漏電斷路器,設想周全。

台灣錦鯉傳奇

珍貴錦鯉不再是日本的天下了!台灣雲林崙背鄉下,欣昌錦鯉靠著家族兩代聯手經營錦鯉,成功行銷歐洲荷蘭、德國、美洲等地,在不少國際錦鯉大賽中打敗日本,連微風廣場家族的百萬錦鯉都來自欣昌錦鯉。
崙背鄉水尾村是很鄉下的地方,平日常有外地客到訪買魚,不少開著黑頭車來此尋找錦鯉或詢問錦鯉養殖,由於錦鯉品相不亞於日本,鍾英哲夫婦經營的錦鯉養殖,不斷受到市場矚目。
欣昌錦鯉的成功主要是行銷,什麼方式的行銷,造就台灣錦鯉游向國際呢?欣昌總經理鍾瑩瑩說,電腦科技的網際網路是關鍵,欣昌錦鯉的品質在業界一直受到好評,但為拓展更大的市場,只有運用網際網路直銷全球。

錦鯉史話說從前

欣昌的創辦人鍾英哲夫婦篤信基督教,原是純樸樂善的養殖戶,鍾英哲說,七十年代退伍後,看到稻子豐收價格低,欠收時價格高,覺得價格突兀,不合理,將水田闢成養殖場,初期養殖最夯的吳郭魚,曾到台北見到錦鯉展,便投入錦鯉養殖的行列,當時村民都笑他傻子,稻子可吃不種去養魚,最後還養不能吃的錦鯉。
為何投入那麼冷門的行業?鍾英哲說,他很喜歡錦鯉的色澤、體態與魚游泳,覺得可以讓人忘掉煩惱,就一直養到現在。鍾英哲養錦鯉是土法煉鋼,完全自己看書摸索,他說,剛養錦鯉時,看到魚死了趕快到台西水產試驗所,試驗所人員告訴他,不太懂錦鯉,此後,鍾英哲開始深入研究養殖方法。
「出社會的書,都是需要才去讀的」鍾英哲說,他買了顯微鏡,自學魚體解剖,看書研究疾病學。錦鯉的養殖生態,鍾英哲可說是大師級,水的溶氧量、PH值,如何影響魚的體型與產卵,連錦鯉幼苗何時放養,避免蝌蚪群吃魚苗都有學問,鍾英哲說,因為魚死的別人多,所以比別人懂更多,這些都是經驗換來的。

百萬錦鯉重視育種

鍾英哲曾任七年中華愛鯉協會理事長,直到今年六月才卸下職務,鍾英哲說,錦鯉的品系主要有十五種,其中以「御三家(紅白、大正、昭和)」最受市場歡迎,微風廣場董事長廖偉志,因水權租費問題,讓二條百萬錦鯉暴斃官司,其百萬錦鯉就是來自欣昌。鍾英哲說,錦鯉的審美觀來自日本,但東、西方偏愛的色澤有別,東方喜歡魚體帶紅色;西方偏愛帶有神祕的黑色。
剛開始養錦鯉,鍾英哲花了七、八年改良魚種,育種的過程很辛苦,都是投入金錢與時間賽跑,初期根本談不上回收,只要有錢就到日本買錦鯉,一條錦鯉日幣二十萬元,不知買了多少條,不斷的實驗育種,將最美花色的錦鯉基因保存,十年後,才開始有較好的利潤。

早期的欣昌錦鯉走的是內…

八爪魚出水方式

這是Raychel A Watkins的設計,一個八通水桶連八個附掛水桶,然後回到淨水桶,淨水桶再導回八通桶,所以八通桶可以養魚養蝦,附掛水桶可以養菜養花或植哉,簡簡單單的設計
This is Raychel A Watkins's design, a Bucket connect to eight supplemental bucket. Then water go through to clear water bucket. The pump helps clear water to finish the final cycle.
The Main bucket is for aquarium, supplemental bucket is for plants. Easy to install.

觀賞魚產業要什麼?

品質價值
對買方而言,目前大部分其他的出口國僅能到達95%,可是往往台灣的向買方確保97%以上存活率。可是台灣政府並沒有合理的防疫認證體制,同時也沒有ISO 9002品質管理系統,競爭優勢往往來自交易過程。
環保價值
為照顧魚的福利,在海運前幾週即注意,包括包裝水質、餵食控制、排泄減控、空間調適及溫度控制,確保運送壓力最低。其他環保考量,包含塑膠袋回收,導入雨水回收,養耕共生等等,同時推廣ISO 14001認證。
良好的保育計畫,減少自產地魚種的掠奪,建立完全養殖,同時可提供愛好者欣賞魚之美,更有助頻危魚種的復育等。
自動化技術
為增進集約養殖的生產力,部分養殖業者使用循環水系統以養殖觀賞魚,該系統致力於有效且受控制下的環境產生一個適當的生態系統及生物系統以飼養魚。以此系統養殖可獲得並提升在水族箱有限範圍內的自然效率,以孔雀魚為例,針對其所使用之循環水系統可使其成長得更為健康快速。
台灣勞力短缺是事實,特別是水產養殖,養魚更應朝向自動化。只有自動化才可以保留彈性,增加生產力,監控魚的狀況。台灣是世界工具機大國,這個部分卻是極度缺乏。
服務業思維
過去台灣農業本是強項。但是從傳統農業轉型到科技產業,及服務產業卻是台灣的弱項。
以觀賞魚產業為例,現在不是蓄養或飼養魚問題,而是提供完全養殖,優良品種及審美觀念給全球消費者。這數量龐大的資訊重點在於消費者的需求,消費者要的是更快速且良好的產品,而非便宜的價格。這不是飼養問題,而是提供完全服務給消費者,而且適時供應。消費者是主導者,且唯有服務消費者需求的人才是贏家。
知識經濟
傳統養殖依賴土地、氣候狀況及非技術勞工,但知識經濟將以知識為基礎。唯有較競爭者生產力更高,這並不是高科技,而是專業知識。競爭力來自將新知識應用於工作、獲取新技能,並開發新技術或科技。
整合價值
為提供解決方案,水產養殖必須整合知識經濟,建立從「產地到消費者」的企業。在觀賞魚中,這是將其他相關活動均整合於營運中,從而對消費者提供完整的解決方案。所以養殖場不僅蓄養而已,更必須從事蓄養、增色、檢疫、包裝、經銷、與區域結盟、更需配置其他相關產品的能力,如水族配件等等。
專業經營
傳統的養殖場大多為家族企業,而經營一個以知識為本的公司,家族企業必須區分公私,界定角色與歸屬責任,而適當的系統,如ISO 9000、內部財務系統等必須逐漸地整合入組織架構中。專業經理人應允許參與決…
