Findings may have implications for oyster health and aquaculture

Date
4 June 2021
Abstract

The cultivated Eastern oyster (Crassostrea virginica) is sold in a niche market seeking rounder and thicker oysters. While most of the research conducted on optimal rearing densities focuses on survival and length growth, the present study looks at the oyster's shape. Three initial length classes...

Abstract

In this study, the accumulation, depuration and methylation of mercury in Crassostrea gigas and Meretrix meretrix were analysed and evaluated using the two-compartment kinetic model through exposure in mercury chloride (HgCl2) solution and depuration procedure in seawater. The results showed that...

Abstract

Genomic selection has been widely used in terrestrial animals but has had limited application in aquaculture due to relatively high genotyping costs. Genomic information has an important role in improving the prediction accuracy of breeding values, especially for traits that are difficult or...

Abstract

Vibrio coralliilyticus and Vibrio tubiashii are pathogens responsible for high larval oyster mortality rates in shellfish hatcheries. Bacteriophage therapy was evaluated to determine its potential to remediate these mortalities. Sixteen phages against V. coralliilyticus and V. tubiashii were...

Abstract

We determined the complete mitochondrial sequences of female-transmitted (F) mitogenomes of two unionid specimens from the Lake Biwa system, Japan. Their gene contents and orders agreed with those of the typical F mitogenome of freshwater mussels. Molecular phylogenetic analysis using 20 previously ...

AbstractFull Text

Blood cockles (Anadara granosa) have been cultivated and became an export commodity from Panipahan, Rokan Hilir, Riau. The study aimed to determine the condition of the bivalve farming, the water quality of the surrounding area and the food safety aspects of the commodity. Samples were taken by...

Abstract

During the last decade, oyster aquaculture has rebounded in Virginia and has been associated with an increase in subaqueous leased area. Production levels remain historically low, however, and many leases are thought to be underutilized. This study uses a novel approach leveraging high-resolution...

Abstract

The parasite Perkinsus marinus, which causes Dermo disease, affects Eastern oyster (Crassostrea virginica) survival and is responsible for substantial losses to aquaculture production. Controlled laboratory challenges enable definition and measurement of disease response phenotypes as well as...

Abstract

Background: The Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas) is a bivalve mollusc with vital roles in coastal ecosystems and aquaculture globally. While extensive genomic tools are available for C. gigas, highly contiguous reference genomes are required to support both fundamental and applied research....
