SpayVac utilizes a patented liposome-based antigen delivery platform technology licensed from BioVaxys.

BioVaxys and Spayvac-for-Wildlife Launch Field Trial for Immunocontraception in the Commercial Aquaculture Industry

  (CANADA, 4/15/2024)

BioVaxys Technology Corp. (CSE: BIOV) (FRA: 5LB) (OTCQB: BVAXF) and SpayVac-for-Wildlife, Inc. jointly announce that SpayVac has partnered with a world leader in the aquaculture space to field test single-injection, long-lasting immuno-contraceptive vaccines in farmed rainbow trout.

SpayVac utilizes a patented liposome-based antigen delivery platform technology licensed from BioVaxys and has demonstrated a robust and sustained immune response in several species.

Dr. Ursula Bechert.

Large-scale contraception or sterilization plays a major role in the commercial aquaculture industry.    As female fish mature, they put the majority of their energy into egg production, instead of muscle growth, which reduces the potential weight gain. 

Additionally, farm-raised fish that escape may breed with their wild counterparts and produce offspring that are less suited to surviving in the wild. Growing reproductively contracepted or sterile fish is the most effective way to manage these challenges.

Initial research field trials were started this spring in the Pacific Northwest. "We've been focused on developing vaccines to help manage free-ranging populations of animals like horses and deer, so this is an exciting new venture for us", said Dr. Bechert, Vice President of Research and Development for SpayVac-for-Wildlife, Inc. 

James Passin.

In addition to fish aquaculture, SpayVac is planning to soon commercialize humane fertility control vaccines for deer, horses and other animals that are also based on the patented liposome-based delivery platform technology licensed from BioVaxys. 

James Passin, BioVaxys CEO, stated, "We are excited at the recent progress of our licensee, SpayVac-for-Wildlife, Inc., in advancing its fish immunocontraception research. The global market for farmed fish is estimated to exceed U$306,000,000,0001"

"We look forward to continuing to support the important work of our partner SpayVac in the field of animal fertility vaccines."
