Development of a new immunostimulant molecule destined for commercialisation

  • Merinov is developing a process for extracting and purifying a high-valued-added molecule that interacts with the immune system.

Controlling biofouling:Nonbiocidal techniques for marine aquaculture

  • Increased biofouling of rearing structures (by algae, bivalves, crustaceans, and other invertebrates) is a major challenge for mariculturists. To deal with this growing problem, Merinov tested two nonbiocidal paints and two natural competitors, namely whelks
    and hermit crabs.

Guide to commercial harvesting of Quebec seaweed

  • The following guide will identify useful sources of information, assistance and support (licenses, regulations, certification, financing, etc.) and a network of key contacts. In addition, the guide seeks to inform users of best practices to adopt when harvesting seaweed, to promote product standardization and to encourage sustainable utilization of resources, all while promoting collaboration among users of coastal environments.

Identification des zones potentielles d’intérêt pour la pêche à la crevette de roche (Sclerocrangon boreas) sur la Côte-Nord

Rapport de recherche-développement no 16-04

  • Scallop culture monitoring was adapted to take into account the specific needs of scallop farmers in three maritime Québec regions: the Magdalen Islands, the Gaspé Peninsula and the North Shore. The information gathered had to address the program’s main objective which was to help farmers make informed decisions to plan their sea scallop (Placopecten magellanicus) production operations as carefully as possible. Essentially, the scallop culture monitoring program sought to
    advise producers about: i) the spat collection period in the wild, ii) the right time to deploy and clean rearing structures, iii) the toxicity of scallop meat, and iv) environmental conditions at the rearing site.

Rapport de recherche-développement no 16-03

  • Mussel farming was monitored over the course of the 2015-2016 production season in three maritime Québec regions:the Magdalen Islands, the Gaspé Peninsula and the North Shore. Researchers wanted to gather data that would help enterprises make informed operations-related decisions while production was underway. The program included several specific studies at mussel farming sites; notably, researchers monitored mussel larva collection and growth,
    epibiont collection, the meat yield of harvested mussels, and water temperatures at rearing sites.

Rapport de recherche-développement no 16-02

  • Oyster culture monitoring was adapted to address the specific needs of mariculture enterprises based on the Magdalen Islands. The information gathered had to meet the main objective established for this effort: help mariculturers make informed decisions and thus, plan the grow-out or finishing activities associated with their American oyster (Crassostrea virginica) production as precisely as possible.

Rapport de recherche-développement no 16-01

  • In the wake of a workshop on how to reduce the impacts of scallop dredging, organised in 2010, it became a priority to document the flight behaviour of scallops in front of an oncoming dredge.

    Consequently, this project sought to gather information about the behaviour of scallops as a dredge approaches and the behaviour of Digby dredges used for the commercial fishery.
