Immune consequences of husbandry processes in the red porgy

The compensation for the immune depression caused by husbandry procedures is based in the adaptation of cultures to more friendly environment for this species (darker environment and low intensity light) and to adaptations in the diet (see partner ICCM).

In terms of immunocompetence the most suitable development in the red porgy for aqua culturists should be the use of deeper cages for on growing and an adapted diet. In addition, an effort on commercialisation and publicity regarding the quality of red porgy would give benefits for the increase of the production of red porgy.
