Fish-breeding technological cadastre as a mechanism for the development of aquaculture in the Kaliningrad region

Periodically changing programs for the development of aquaculture in the Russian Federation reflect the development strategy of the country's fisheries subsector. However, this strategy is built on the "building blocks", which are regional programs. But, when developing regional programs for the development of aquaculture, more often they use an approach focused on setting directive indicators for the quantitative and qualitative parameters of aquaculture products and attracting potential investors to their implementation. Once developed, a fish breeding technological cadastre will determine the prospects for aquaculture in the region for decades and can be considered as a "road map" for its development. When determining the strategy for the development of aquaculture in the region, it is necessary to consider the potential capacity of the regional consumer market in aquaculture products and the real one, assessed for the period of strategy development, corresponding to the level of income of the population, as well as the possibility of selling aquaculture products in external consumer markets.

Risks in animal feeding and digital methods of their analysis

The high yielding dairy cows must be fed a balanced and healthy ration (with a high amount of fiber). But, in intensive farming systems, we must load the rumen with more readily available forms of energy (starch and proteins) in order to derive the high milk yields we need to remain profitable in a low-margin industry. The rumen in cattle is organized to transform roughage (high-fiber) material, of naturally low nutritive value, into high-value products, namely volatile fatty acids (energy). Unbalanced diets cause rumen microbiome dysbiosis, digestive problems, glucose, carbohydrate, energy, protein, lipid and mineral metabolism disorders. It leads to rumen acidosis, ketosis, liver dystrophy, reproductive organ pathologies, decreased immunity, milk yield, fat content of milk, productive longevity decrease. One limitation of rumen microbial community marker-16S gene sequencing is that it does not provide information about the functional composition. Bioinformatics programs such as PICRUSt2 were developed to predict the functional potential of a bacterial community based on marker gene sequencing profiles. We studied the rumen microbiome, its metabolic potential and gene expression affected by various feed factors and in different technological breeding periods.

Digital technologies as a basis for collecting and processing information of economically useful traits in the introduction of genomic breeding of dairy cattle

The current state of livestock breeding in Russia and abroad is considered, achievements in breeding dairy cattle of Holstein and other breeds are noted, and ways to solve challenges in livestock breeding and the agro-industrial complex of the country are identified. According to Falconer's theory (1960), genetic progress in animal husbandry consists of a number of factors, the key of which are: the accuracy of selection, the intensity of selection, as well as the generation interval between generations. Modern reproductive and genetic technologies both ensure the intensity of breeding and shorten the generation interval, and the accuracy of breeding should be maintained by strict identification of animals, fixation and collection of phenotypic data. Thus, the collection and digital processing of phenotypic traits based on the BLUP method makes it possible to predict with high accuracy precisely the indicators of the breeding value of animals, which are expressed in the level of genetic potential and its impact on economically useful traits of descendants.

Special approaches of robotic milking with different cow movement systems

The livestock sector is the most important and strategic in the food security of our country. In recent years, there have been many changes in technical and technological methods in the production of livestock products. Systems of robotization of the processes of feeding, milking, collection and processing of raw materials are being introduced. Flawless milk is required for high quality products. The robotization of processes and control systems are becoming more sophisticated and more accessible. The dairy industry is changing dramatically. This is an integrated approach to the rational management of the dairy business that allows agricultural enterprises to rise to a more efficient level of production organization.

Digital technologies for analyzing the trajectory of a vessel in relation to the task of determining the fact of fishing and the type of aquatic biological resources

3. Illegal and uncontrolled fishing of commercial fish species is a serious environmental threat with economic consequences. Direct control of fishing activities is currently not possible due to the lack of the necessary technical and infrastructural base. Raid measures are only preventive in nature and are not effective enough. In addition, they have a small coverage, not allowing them to sufficiently influence the reduction of the number of illegal fishing facts. The ability, without waiting for the arrival of the catch report, to assess that the vessel is fishing allows one to display this fact on the vessel map for inspection and border services, to supplement information for planning control and raid measures. In order to establish the fact and stop fishing activities before the arrival of the vessel's report, a machine learning model is proposed to predict the presence of this activity based on information received via satellite channels about the coordinates, course and speed of vessels. The prototype is an integrated system that works together with the vessel monitoring system to assess the probability of fishing by a certain vessel at time intervals based on incoming monitoring data. Based on the accumulated monitoring data on the trajectory of the vessel for a statistically significant period, the proposed system allows a high degree of accuracy (up to 90%) to determine the type of aquatic biological resource caught.
