Abstract

In this study the Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture (IMTA) approach was examined at a gilthead seabream, Sparus aurata, farm located in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. To achieve this, digestibility trials were conducted with three species representing different trophic levels, the grey mullet,...

Abstract

Chromatographic fractions of a rough extract of echinoid spawn (REES) is demonstrated to efficiently induce oocyte maturation in aspidochirote holothuroids. The method is so efficient that it is currently used in holothuriculture to obtain fertilised eggs even outside the reproductive period of the ...

Abstract

Interest in wildlife epidemiology has increased in recent years. The control of diseases is critical for the survival of natural populations of economically valuable species. The present study is the first investigation of the etiology and epidemiology of skin ulceration disease in the sea cucumber ...

Abstract

Isostichopus badionotus is a new commercially important sea cucumber in the Caribbean that has rapidly shown signs of overexploitation. There is no information on the growth and survival rates for wild or hatchery-produced early juveniles. Hatchery production and determination of juvenile growth...

Abstract

The viability of placing abalones (Haliotis discus hannai), sea cucumbers (Apostichopus japonicas) and rockfish (Sebastes schlegeli) in a polyculture system, the effect of this mixed species group on the system's nitrogen (N) and phosphorous (P) budgets, and the growth and food intake of the...

Abstract

The growth rate, survival rate, development and setting rate of larval sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus were measured under four light intensities (0, 50, 500 and 2,000 lx), and the growth rate and metabolism of the juvenile sea cucumbers were investigated under four light intensity treatments...

Abstract

Sea cucumbers are free of protective exoskeleton and capable of autolysis under stress conditions. The live transport of small-size juveniles to grown-out sites induces hypoxia and congesting stress. The transport process is essential to production of outdoor healthy seedlings. Here, we evaluated...

Abstract

Aquaculture has been a growing sector of food production worldwide in the last decades, and now starts to include new, unconventional species from the Phylum Echinodermata, such as sea urchin (Paracentrotus lividus) and sea cucumber (Holothuria tubulosa). However, little is known in this context...

Abstract

Apostichopus japonicus is one of the most economically important species in sea cucumber aquaculture in China. Fucosylated glycosaminoglycan from A. japonicus (AjFG) has shown multiple pharmacological activities. However, results from studies on the structure of AjFG are still controversial. In...

Abstract

The overexploitation of natural populations of sea cucumbers is a threat to the sustainability of sea cucumber aquaculture operations reliant on wild-caught broodstocks. Maintaining wild-caught broodstocks in captivity ensures continuous availability of suitable broodstocks. However, it remains...
