mark.adams@utas.edu.au

Dr Mark Adams has a broad base of aquaculture, aquatic animal health, husbandry and recirculating systems experience. His formative research experience focused on respiratory physiology and branchial pathology of fishes eventually leading to investigating the effects of husbandry and epidemiological aspects of AGD in the commercial environment. In recent years his research has focussed upon treatment of AGD and comparative pathology between salmonids and native species. Mark actively collaborates with research and industry partners across various themes seeking to relate health and husbandry with fish growth, nutrition, quality, technology, and new species development. He is currently employed as a research fellow and Aquarium Facility Manager at the Newnham campus. He has extensive experience with design, construction and adaption of recirculating systems and optimising husbandry approaches to ensure robust experimental outcomes.

General Responsibilities

My research interests include aquacultural animal health, husbandry and physiology. Current projects include investigating the host susceptibility and responses of a range of salmonids and endemic fish species to amoebic gill disease (AGD), treatment alternatives and/or improvements for AGD, husbandry methods for brook char, behavioral aspects and probiotic use in barramundi.

Projects

Gill health assessment of harvestable Atlantic salmon (2017)$7,087
Description
Provide gill health assessments from commercially harvestable Atlantic salmon. Gill samples collected by farm personnel from Atlantic salmon during harvest operations will be sent to IMAS Launceston and analysed qualitatively and quantitatively for signs of disease (principally amoebic gill disease) or other anomalies.

Gross scoring of fixed gill samples for EAF/Skretting (2017)$10,928
Description
An AGD challenge conducted in the IMAS Experimental Aquaculture Facility requires that gill samples are excised from euthanized fish (n=660 in total), fixed in specimen jars and sent to IMAS-Launceston on a weekly basis. Upon arrival gill arches are dissected out, photographed and the resultant gill images are scored according to the severity of gross pathological change based on Taylor et al 2009.

Optimising a combination treatment for AGD in Atlantic salmon (2014)$23,114
Description
The project aim is to test the efficacy of hydrogen peroxide combined with freshwater to resolve amoebic gill disease at high temperature. Results will indicate whether treatment of AGD with a combination treatment can be applied under high temperatures commonly experienced in situ. Successful outcomes will likely lead to further optimisation trials in vivo and in situ.

Further optimisation of a combination treatment for AGD (2014)$32,661
Description
This project will test the efficacy of hydrogen peroxide combined with freshwater to resolve amoebic gill disease in vWo at low and high temperature. The synthesis of previous trial findings (undertaken with Huon Aquaculture Group) and the results obtained from this project will determine temperature dependent safety and efficacy guidelines for the combined FW/peroxide treatment of fish in vivo that are moderately affected with experimentally induced AGO.

Combination treatment of Atlantic salmon affected by amoebic gill disease (AGD) (2013)$17,255
Description
This project will combine the use of hydrogen peroxide and freshwater to treat amoebic gill disease in Atlantic salmon. The experiment aims to identify whether a synergistic effect between the two treatment options will occur by comparing three different concentrations of hydrogen peroxide in freshwater over a fixed time duration relative to freshwater and seawater only control groups.
