A strategy for sustainable mariculture
(Malacca Straits Research and Development Centre (MASDEC), Universiti Putra Malaysia, 2002)
From merely growing shellfish and macroalgae along the freinges of the sea, man is naw growing marine fish in cages thus expanding the range of mariculture. While the farming of shellfish may have its own set of problems ...
The yellow mangrove: its ethnobotany, history of maritime collection, and needed rehabilitation in the central and southern Philippines
(University of San Carlos Publications, 2000)
Most mangrove reforestation program in the Philippines and elsewhere in Asia focus on the genus Rhizophora, hence there is a need to identify and develop planting and harvesting techniques for other mangrove species, ...
Why are Halophytophthora species well adapted to mangrove habitats?
(Springer Verlag, 2000)
Halophytophthora species are commonly isolated from fallen mangrove leaves from early to late stages of decay. In this study we show that these organisms are well adpted to mangrove habitats as they have a wide tolerance ...
Genetic diversity in farmed Asian Nile and red hybrid tilapia stocks evaluated from microsatellite and mitochondrial DNA analysis
We analyzed microsatellite and mitochondrial DNA restriction fragment length polymorphism (mtDNA-RFLP) in two domesticated (NIFI and Israel) and four genetically improved (GIFT, GMT, FAC-selected and SEAFDEC-selected) Nile ...
Effect of nematode Panagrellus redivivus density on growth, survival, feed consumption and carcass composition of bighead carp Aristichthys nobilis (Richardson) larvae
(Blackwell Publishing, 2004)
The study aimed to determine the optimum density of free-living nematodes in feeding bighead carp, Aristichthys nobilis, larvae. In the first experiment, carp stocked at 25 larvae L<sup>−1</sup> were fed varying levels ...
Effect of stunting of juvenile bighead carp Aristichthys nobilis (Richardson) on compensatory growth and reproduction
(Blackwell Publishing, 2004)
The study was conducted to determine if stunting of young bighead carp Aristichtys nobilis (Richardson) would affect subsequent growth and reproduction. Juveniles (3 g each) were stocked directly in cages (control) in a ...
Amino acid profiles in the midgut, ovary, developing eggs and zoea of the mud crab, Scylla serrata
(Society of Israeli Aquaculture and Marine Biotechnology, 2004)
Culture of the mud crab, Scylla serrata, is beset by low and inconsistent survival of larvae in spite of the high fecundity of crab breeders. The nutrition of the embryo and pre-feeding zoea depends on what is stored in ...
Growth and fatty acid production of thraustochytrids from Panay mangroves, Philippines
(Mushroom Research Foundation, 2003)
Optimization of culture conditions with regard to the combined effects of salinity and temperature on biomass and fatty acid production of four thraustochytrid isolates were undertaken. Two strains of Schizochytrium mangrovei ...
