Solar dryer with Electrical back-up

This hybrid Solar Dryer is having an S.S. tray drying area of 6 sq. m with an alternate electrical backup heating system. The effective harnessing of solar energy using specially designed solar air heating panels and proper circulation of this hot air across the SS trays loaded with fish with the help of blowers makes […]


The advantages of this invention are: 1. The murrel (Channa punctatus, C. marulius, C. striatus) skins used in the present invention are the waste fish skins that would otherwise be thrown away in the garbage, so waste is utilized. 2. The process can be used to develop leather from any other fish species also. 3. […]

Artificial germination of Enterocytozoon hepatopenaei (EHP) spores induced by ions under the scanning electron microscope

Enterocytozoon hepatopenaei (EHP), is an emerging microsporidian pathogen responsible for hepatopancreatic microsporidiasis (HPM) in shrimps and is associated with severe growth retardation. The disease causes economic losses in shrimp aquaculture. In this study, EHP spore germination was induced and demonstrated with a scanning electron microscope (SEM). The ions (cations and anions) generated by high-energy electrons […]
