Farming multiple species in same area could benefit shellfish aquaculture, study finds

Date
7 April 2020
Abstract

Cryopreservation of genetic material from farmed aquatic species is a valuable technique to advance selective breeding programs for stock improvement. In this study, effects of cryopreservation on development of trochophore and D-stage larvae of Greenshell™ mussel (Perna canaliculus) were evaluated ...

Abstract

Haplosporidian protist parasites are a major concern for aquatic animal health, as they have been responsible for some of the most significant marine epizootics on record. Despite their impact on food security, aquaculture and ecosystem health, characterizing haplosporidian diversity, distributions ...

Abstract

In French Polynesia, the production and exportation of black pearls through the aquaculture of the black-lip pearl oyster Pinctada margaritifera provide the second largest economic income for the country after tourism. This industry entirely relies on the collection of natural spats from few highly ...

Abstract

Triploid organisms, in particular oysters, are widely used in marine aquaculture. However, the advantage of triploid oysters compared to diploids has not been proven in all cases. Comparative morphological analysis of Pacific oysters Crassostrea gigas of different ploidy levels allows evaluating...

Abstract

The reproductive cycle of Ruditapes decussatus was studied to assist with understanding the basic biology of this potential candidate for bivalve aquaculture in Egypt. Clams from three sites along the Egyptian coast (near Damietta, Ismailia and Alexandria) were examined over a year. Female:male sex ...

Abstract

The common octopus (Octopus vulgaris) is a species of great interest to the aquaculture industry. However, the high mortalities registered during different phases of the octopus lifecycle, particularly the paralarvae stage, present a challenge for commercial aquaculture. Improvement of diet...

Abstract

The Manila clam (Ruditapes philippinarum) is the bivalve species with the highest global production from both fisheries and aquaculture, but its production is seriously threatened by perkinsosis, a disease caused by the protozoan parasite Perkinsus olseni. To understand the molecular mechanisms...
