In this paper, a mixed-model PC camera assembly line balancing case study is presented. The aim of the study is to establish different line configurations, for varying levels of demand. In the first stage of the study, a heuristic procedure previously developed by some of the authors, based on the simulated annealing meta-heuristic, is used to derive line(More)
Dietary fatty acids, particularly arachidonic acid (ARA), affect cortisol and may influence the expression of genes involved in stress response in fish. The involvement of ARA on stress, lipid, and eicosanoid metabolism genes, in Senegalese sole, was tested. Post-larvae were fed Artemia presenting graded ARA levels (0.1, 0.4, 0.8, 1.7, and 2.3 %, dry matter(More)
The attack rate among these soldiers was 53.3% (8/15): 7 P. vivax infections and 1 co-infection with P. vivax and P. falciparum. Mosquitoes were collected 3 months later by using human landing catches during 5 consecutive days. The area had been free of illegal gold mining activities since the 15 soldiers were deployed. A total of 321 Anopheles mosquitoes(More)
The purpose of this study was to describe and compare the reproductive success and egg and larvae quality between wild and first-generation (F1) breeders of Argyrosomus regius. Wild broodstock were adapted to captivity, and good-quality spawns were obtained in 2009–2010, after GnRH treatment. In 2012, the F1 meagre (3 years old) spawned naturally at IPMA’s(More)
