Instituto de Acuicultura de Torre de la Sal

Introduction: The "Torre de la Sal" Aquaculture Institute (IATS) is a Public Research Center of the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC), which has been active in the field of Marine Aquaculture for more than 25 years. It is located in the vicinity of the Natural Park of the Prat de Cabanes-Torreblanca (Castellón), Spain and has a staff of 16 researchers, who together with the support staff, fellows and contracted researchers constitute a critical mass of the first order both nationally and international. IATS researchers are grouped into two Research Departments: a) Fish Physiology and Biotechnology b) Biology, Cultivation and Pathology of Marine Species The "Torre de la Sal" Aquaculture Institute (IATS) is a Public Research Center of the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC), which has been active in the field of Marine Aquaculture for more than 25 years. It is located in the vicinity of the Natural Park of the Prat de Cabanes-Torreblanca (Castellón), and has a staff of 16 researchers, who together with the support staff, fellows and contracted researchers constitute a critical mass of the first order both nationally As international. IATS researchers are grouped into two Research Departments: a) Fish Physiology and Biotechnology b) Biology, Cultivation and Pathology of Marine Species This activity is carried out within the framework of close collaboration with other national and international entities. Campus and facilities a) Culture Halls: IATS holds four halls for experimental fish and shellfish culture spanning over 2000 m². They contain over 300 water tanks of different volumes. Complementary facilities include two wet labs and 4 necropsy rooms adjacent to the culture area. b) Radioisotope unit: ATS has a Category 2 Radioactive Facility in which manipulation of 125I, 32P, 3S, 14C and 3H is allowed in the context of biological assays. c) Cell Culture Unit: The cell culture unit of the IATS is divided into two modules: Pre-room of crop equipped with inverted microscope, micromanipulador, microinector, cultivating stoves, centrifuges and diverse material, system of mobile extraction. Culture room - with negative pressure filtration system-equipped with inverted microscope, laminar flow cabinets, CO2 incubators and cultivating stoves. d) Histology and Microscopy: The processing of samples for histology, immunocytochemistry and in situ hybridization is carried out in the premises of the Histology and Microscopy Unit. It is subdivided into several modules: Processing rooms equipped with extraction booths, microtomes, ultra-microtomes and tissue processor. Microscope room equipped with optical microscopes, magnifiers and image processors. e) Biochemistry and molecular biology: The IATS has four laboratories of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology where the different research groups develop their activity. These laboratories have gas extraction booths and mobile extraction systems. Each laboratory is responsible for compliance with safety standards and good laboratory practices. Research & Development The research lines of the IATS are centered on marine fish (seabass, seabream, turbot, flounder, dentex) molluscs and crustaceans (Artemia): 1. Population Dynamics and Productive Systems 2. Reproduction and Genetic Improvement 3. Nutrition and Growth 4. Pathologies of Cultivated Species 5. Larvicultura and Ecotoxicología 6. Transgenesis 7. Proteomics and Functional Genomics Researchers 1. Prof. Silvia Zanuy: Group of Physiology of Fish Reproduction 2. Dr. Evaristo Mañanós Sánchez: Endocrinology Research Group on the reproduction and diversification of fish culture 3. Dr. José Miguel Cerdá Reverter`: Fish Intake Control Research Group
