Abstract

The aquaculture of penaeid shrimp has grown rapidly during the past three decades. However, shrimp aquaculture continues to be plagued by infectious disease, particularly of viral aetiology. Urgently needed are in vitro biological tools to facilitate early detection and diagnosis of penaeid shrimp...

Abstract

The Pacific white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei is a euryhaline species with optimal salinity of 20-25 practical salinity unit (psu) for growth and survival, but has been cultured in inland water with salinity <5 psu worldwide. In the past decade, much research progress has been made on the physiological and nutritional requirements of white shrimp at low salinity. This study reviews the recent findings in the aspects of growth, survival, energy metabolism, stress resistance and immunity of white shrimp at low salinity and synthesizes recent research outcomes in nutritional requirements in an attempt to improve the shrimp performance in aquaculture at low salinity. The white shrimp at low salinity usually show slow growth, low ...

Abstract

The use and study of microbes in aquaculture has become a common practice in the last decade. Metagenomics is a relative recent genomics subdiscipline that has emerged as a promising scientific tool to analyse the complex genomes contained within microbial communities. However, despite the...

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of inbreeding on the immune responses and antioxidant status of Portunus trituberculatus juveniles. Results showed that inbreeding affected the total haemocyte count, and phagocytic, pro-phenoloxidase (propo), phenoloxidase and antibacterial...

Abstract

Quahog Parasite Unknown (QPX) is a potentially lethal pathogen of the hard clam Mercenaria mercenaria along the northeastern coast of the United States. In the Raritan Bay wild clam population, QPX prevalence and infection intensity at three sites were examined by both histology and quantitative...

Abstract

Two Artemia culture experiments were conducted in a zero water exchange system at salinity 80 g L-1. In Experiment I, different carbon sources including molasses, glucose, sucrose and corn flour were given to supplement suboptimal feeding with the microalgae Dunaliella viridis, whereas the control...

Abstract

The bioflocs technology proved to be a sustainable technique used in zero-water exchange shrimp culture systems. However, the pH and alkalinity may decrease due to the biofloc formation process and Nitrification. A 48-day experiment was performed to investigate the effects of different pH (7.1-7.6; ...
