Application of gas mixture for anesthesia of sturgeon fish
Purpose and scope
The development concerns the aquaculture sector. Also, it can be used in ichthyological researches and fish farming in the transfer of sturgeon fish to the hypometabolic state. To achieve the reduction of stress, prevention of damage during sorting, transportation, as well as carrying out manipulations.
Key characteristic, the essence of the development
The method is to saturate the water in which it is located fish, gas mixture СО2 and О 2(in the ratio1: 1) under pressure of 102. 6 kPa at water temperature15 - 18 С, and the supply of the gas mixture is stopped in the case when the fish falls to the bottom and stops moving.
In such a state of fish you can withstand 1 - 2 hours, and after the individuals transferring into clean water of the physiological functions are restored within 5 - 8 minutes.
Main benefits of the development
The development advantages: are no need in creating special installation and the possibility of saturation with a gas mixture of water in aquariums of different volumes.
Intellectual Property Protection Status
The patent of Ukraine for the utility model has been obtained
The results of the development can be realized with a practical purpose in the enterprises of the fish industry and during research in scientific institutions.
The state of readiness of development
The development was introduced at the Fisheries Enterprise of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine.
