Abstract

The South Pacific bay scallop Argopecten purpuratus represents a high-value species harvested along the Peruvian and Chilean coastline for more than 60 years. Following the strong El Niño event of 1983/84, both countries experienced a boom in scallop fisheries, but catches dropped as soon as...

Abstract

Oyster culture activity along the eastern Amazon mangrove coast in Pará state, Brazil, was evaluated using socio-economic data to support its management and future development. Between 2013 and 2014, surveys were carried out in the region's seven oyster culture associations through interviews with...

Abstract

Shells derived from marine mollusks represent over 80% of shellfish waste. Therefore, a 42-d feeding trial was conducted to assess the effects of different levels of snail shells (SS) in the diets of kuruma shrimps Marsupenaeus japonicus as a source of calcium (Ca). An evaluation of the ability of...

Abstract

The edible mussel Mytilus edulis is a major aquaculture commodity in Europe, with 168000 t produced in 2015. A number of abundant, well characterised parasites of the species are known, though none are considered to cause significant mortality. Haplosporida (Rhizaria, Endomyxa) is an order of...

Abstract

Aquaculture is one of the fastest growing food production sectors in recent decades. Such rapid development emphasizes the need to adopt more efficient production strategies while simultaneously increasing productivity and sustainability. Monitoring of production is an important strategy to achieve ...

Abstract

The effects of mono- and bi-microalgal diets on shell length, organic tissue, and survival of Spondylus limbatus juveniles were tested in two separate feeding experiments. The first examined nine single species of microalgae: Chaetoceros gracilis, C. muelleri, Isochrysis aff. galbana (T-ISO), ...

Abstract

Previous studies have shown clearly that the deposit feeding polychaete, Hediste diversicolor, can promote oxygenation of sediments exposed to excess loads of mussel faeces. In this experimental study, we explicitly test their utility as food for H. diversicolor to survive and grow on. Furthermore, ...

Abstract

Gonadic conditioning and maturation of queen clam Dosinia ponderosa fed three microalgae (Isochrysis galbana, Tetraselmis suecica and Chaetoceros calcitrans) at three temperatures (20, 25 and 30°C) were assessed. Histological analysis showed six gonadic stages, indicators of maturity. The...

Abstract

Parentage analysis is a useful tool for establishing pedigree relationships in selective breeding. In this study, 31 microsatellite markers were tested, and 13 loci were subsequently used to identify parenthood in Pinctada fucata. According to simulation analysis, the power of nine loci to exclude...
