Effect of Different Sources and Levels of some Dietary Biological Additives on Growth Performance and Production Economy of Nile Tilapia
In part one of three, A.M. Abdelhamid, Mansoura University, Egypt, aims to investigate the effect of dietary graded levels of Aqua Superzyme, Garlen Allicin, and Diamond V (Original XPC) on the growth performance and economic production of Nile tilapia...
Ocean Acidification and Responses to Predators: Can Sensory Redundancy Reduce the Apparent Impacts of Elevated CO2 on Fish?
Previous studies have documented that exposure to elevated Carbon dioxide (CO2) causes impaired antipredator behavior by coral reef fish in response to chemical cues associated with predation. However, whether ocean acidification will impair visual recognition...
Comparative Study of the Reproductive Performance and White Spot Syndrome Virus Status of Black Tiger Shrimp Collected from the Bay of Bengal
A comparative study, by Partho Debnath, Manjurul Karim and Ben Belton, Worldfish, assessed the length, weight, fecundity, hatching rate and White Spot Syndrome Virus (WSSV) prevalence in black tiger shrimp (Penaeus monodon) broods collected from shallow...
Vanishing Clams on an Iberian Beach: Local Consequences and Global Implications of Accelerating Loss of Shells to Tourism
Multi-decadal increase in shell removal by tourists, a process that may accelerate degradation of natural habitats, was quantified via two series of monthly surveys, conducted thirty years apart (1978–1981 and 2008–2010) in one small embayment on...
