Biochemical composition and energy allocation in the tropical scallop Lyropecten (Nodipecten) nodosus during the months leading up to and following the development of gonads
We quantified biochemical constituents of the major body components of the scallop Lyropecten nodosus (initially measuring 9.4 mm in shell height) cultured at 8, 21 and 34 m in depth in the Golfo deExpand
