Abstract

Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas) is a sessile bivalve living in the intertidal zone. It has become an attractive model for developmental studies due to its metamorphic transition from a mobile planktonic larvae to a sessile adults. To determine the effect of metamorphosis on muscle development in ...

Abstract

Post-harvesting, handling and storage practices, particularly during the summer months, are crucial for mussel farms, as they induce stress, mortalities and affect overall performance and marketability. In the current work, Mediterranean farmed mussels, were stored into plastic net bags of...

Abstract

Lectin is a protein with multiple functions. In this study, the full-length cDNA of the Agrocybe aegerita lectin (AAL) gene was cloned, recombinant AAL (AAL-His) was expressed, and the activities of AAL-His were analyzed. Northern blot analysis showed that the major AAL transcript is approximately...

Abstract

Oysters are important mariculture species worldwide. Because of their filter-feeding behaviors, oysters can accumulate microorganisms, including pathogens, from surrounding water and concentrate bacteria in high numbers. Rapid and suitable methods for quantification of Escherichia coli in oysters...

Abstract

Shrimp samples from aquaculture ponds supplied with either freshwater (0.2-1.3 g L-1 salinity) or seawater (27.6-39.0 g L-1 salinity) were subjected to elemental profiling and to stable isotope analysis. Concentrations of 35 trace elements, including rare earth elements (REEs) were analyzed by...

Abstract

In shrimp aquaculture, eyestalk ablation is the only technique that is widely used to accelerate ovarian development. Alternative methods for producing improved ovarian development in broodstock are currently being investigated. Several factors involved in the regulation of ovarian development in...

Abstract

The oyster's immune system is capable of adapting upon exposure to a pathogen-associated molecular pattern (PAMP) to have an enhanced secondary response against the same type of pathogen. This has been demonstrated using poly(I:C) to elicit an antiviral response in the Pacific oyster (Crassostrea...

Aquaculture can serve either as a source or sink of disease-causing parasites of wild oyster populations depending on management variables

Date
19 December 2018
Abstract

Release or escapes of aquaculture organisms may impact the genetic composition and variability of wild populations, leading to diverse issues that may compromise long-term wild stock fitness. Therefore, it is relevant to determine if farmed stocks are currently interacting with wild populations....

Abstract

In April 2016, an outbreak emerged in a cultured population of black-spotted pond frog tadpoles in Shuangliu County, China, whereas tadpoles were suffering from substantial mortality (90%). Principal clinical signs of diseased tadpoles were comprised haemorrhage on their body surface, swollen...
