INCAR Center will give a keynote talk and present six research studies at the XLII Congress of Marine Sciences

The Interdisciplinary Center for Aquaculture Research (INCAR) will have a varied representation at the XLII Congress of Marine Sciences, which will take place between May 22 and 26, in the city of Puerto Montt.

In the event organized by the Chilean Society of Marine Sciences, the University of Los Lagos and Intesal, the INCAR Center will give a keynote talk and 6 research studies will be presented in oral and poster format.

The Master Talks will begin on Tuesday, May 23, with the presentation of the Principal Investigator of the INCAR Center, Dr. Doris Soto. On the occasion, the ecology expert will present “Interdiscipline and scientific collaboration for the sustainable management of aquatic ecosystems and aquaculture in particular.”

The talk will take place at the University of Los Lagos, Chinquihue campus, starting at 12:30 p.m. and will end at around 1:30 p.m.

Meanwhile, the poster sessions will be between Tuesday 23 and Thursday 25 May, between 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. In this session, the RP “Animal health in salmonid freshwater life stages”, will present the posters: “Immune response of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) experimentally infected with Tenacibaculum dicentrarchi” and “Diagnosis of Flavobacterium psychrophilum and infectious pancreatic necrosis virus (IPNv) in wild specimens of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) in eight rivers of the Los Lagos Region, Chile”.

In addition, the “Aquaculture Genomics” RP will present two other investigations: “Transcriptomic evaluation of the apoptosis pathway in Atlantic salmon during their transfer to the sea” and “Immunogenic potential of bacteria associated with Caligus rogercresseyi for the development of an antimicrobial vaccine against caligidosis in salmonids”.

Finally, two works related to the Integrative Program of the INCAR Center will be presented orally in the Fisheries, Aquaculture and Biotechnology sessions. These are “Circulation patterns in a marine system with aquaculture use: Chidhuapi Channel” and “Effect of mussel farming systems on phytoplankton composition and its mitigating potential against HABs”. This last work will be presented on Wednesday, May 24, at 3:30 p.m. by Stefany Camelo, PhD student of the Integrative Program of the INCAR Center.
