UMEH specializes in various forms of live fish transportation, particularly in the transport of captured wild broodstock and shipment of eggs, yolk sac larvae, and fingerlings. Over the past few years UMEH has produced and shipped approximately one million cobia fingerlings to various farms and labs around around the world. The team continues to improve the protocol to make shipments more efficient in terms of cost and survivability of the fish. The continued work can be seen in a recent student thesis “Optimizing transport of live juvenile cobia (Rachycentron canadum): effects of salinity and shipping biomass” by Stieglitz et al., 2012.
