Optimization of culture medium for the continuous cultivation of the microalga Haematococcus pluvialis
Abstract The freshwater microalga Haematococcus pluvialis is one of the best microbial sources of the carotenoid astaxanthin, but this microalga shows low growth rates and low final cell densitiesExpand
Occurrence of foodborne pathogenic bacteria in retail prepackaged portions of marine fish in Spain
Aims:  To survey the presence of indigenous and nonindigenous foodborne bacterial pathogens in displayed prepacked portions of fresh marine fish.
The cell composition of Nannochloropsis sp. changes under different irradiances in semicontinuous culture
Nannochloropsis sp. was grown semicontinuously with a rate of daily renewal of the culture media of 40% of the volume of the culture under different irradiances (40, 60, 80, 220 and 480 μmol quantaExpand
Quorum quenching activity in Anabaena sp. PCC 7120: identification of AiiC, a novel AHL-acylase.
Many bacteria use quorum sensing (QS) to coordinate responses to environmental changes. In Gram-negative bacteria, the most extensively studied QS systems rely on the use of N-acylhomoserine lactonesExpand
Extracellular polysaccharide synthesis by Nostoc strains as affected by N source and light intensity.
A study on the effect of two of the main factors affecting energy flux in N(2)-fixing cyanobacteria, i.e. light intensity and availability of combined nitrogen, on the synthesis of solubleExpand
Quorum quenching in cultivable bacteria from dense marine coastal microbial communities.
Acylhomoserine lactone (AHLs)-mediated quorum-sensing (QS) processes seem to be common in the marine environment and among marine pathogenic bacteria, but no data are available on the prevalence ofExpand
High DHA content in Artemia is ineffective to improve Octopus vulgaris paralarvae rearing
Abstract We analyzed the performance and biochemical composition of Octopus vulgaris paralarvae fed on three different diets, consisting of Artemia juveniles (1.5–2.8 mm) differing in their highlyExpand
Nutritional value of the cryptophyte Rhodomonas lens for Artemia sp.
Abstract Juvenile or adult Artemia sp. are often used as live prey for the rearing of early life stages of some crustacean, fish and cephalopod species. The improvements of both Artemia growth andExpand
Acylhomoserine lactone production and degradation by the fish pathogen Tenacibaculum maritimum, a member of the Cytophaga-Flavobacterium-Bacteroides (CFB) group.
Tenacibaculum maritimum (formerly Flexibacter maritimus) is a filamentous, biofilm-forming member of the Cytophaga-Flavobacterium-Bacteroides group (or Bacteroidetes), which causes the widelyExpand
Bacterial microflora of wild brown trout (Salmo trutta), wild pike (Esox lucius), and aquacultured rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss).
Initial numbers of bacteria associated with wild (brown trout and pike) and cultured (rainbow trout) freshwater fish as well as with the water in which they were caught were determined. Subsequently,Expand
