Procambarus clarkii is a native species of Central America, but strongly invasive in many
regions of the world. An investigation on the red swamp crayfish was carried out to obtain more information about its population dynamics in the Tiber River, in Central Italy.

The pattern of yellowish pigmentation of the skin was assessed in gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata) fed for 12 weeks iso-proteic (45%) and iso-lipidic (20%) diets deprived of fish meal and containing either a blend of vegetable protein-rich ingredients or where graded levels of the vegetable protein blend were replaced by insect (Hermetia illucens—10%, 20% or 40%) pupae meal, poultry by-product meal (20%, 30% or 40%), red swamp crayfish meal (10%) and marine microalgae (Tisochrysis lutea and Tetraselmis suecica—10%) dried biomass.

European consumers prefer wild over farmed aquatic food and consider it healthier and tastier. Consumers are increasingly paying attention to sustainability and welfare of farmed fish. Such expectations might be met by organic certification, but this represents a cost for the producer. It is crucial to know consumer habits about farmed aquatic food consumption and willingness to pay for certification.

The present study aims a comprehensive description of the Italian organic aquaculture sector, within the national aquaculture framework, in terms of production units and volumes during the four years period 2015-2018. This survey allowed to collect results about species produced and farm number and distribution at regional level.

A method for fish monitoring by high-frequency acoustic camera, coupled with an automated method for counting fish, was implemented that allowed to analyze very large amounts of data with reduced costs. The acoustic camera was mounted in the tidal channel of the Caprolace lagoon (central Italy) and programmed for 12 h. continuous recording at night time, between October 2016 and February 2017, for a total of 413 h, that were automatically processed by a specific software routine.

The majority of organic marine fish farms currently begin the production cycle with nonorganic juveniles from conventional hatcheries, permitted by the European Regulation on organic fish origin (EC 710/2009) until the end of 2016. Wild juvenile gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata) from coastal lagoons and hatcheries were experimentally reared under organic conditions, in order (1) to investigate differences in fillet lipid content and fatty acids composition, and (2) to propose a possible future source of juveniles destined for organic aquaculture.
