Relationships between otolith size and fish size in some mesopelagic and bathypelagic species from the Mediterranean Sea (Strait of Messina, Italy)
The length-weight relationships and the regressions between otolith size (length and width) and fish length of some mesopelagic and bathypelagic fishes living in the central Mediterranean Sea wereExpand
Relationships between otolith size and fish length in some mesopelagic teleosts (Myctophidae, Paralepididae, Phosichthyidae and Stomiidae).
Length-mass relationships and linear regressions are given for otolith size (length and height) and standard length (LS ) of certain mesopelagic fishes (Myctophidae, Paralepididae, Phosichthyidae andExpand
Feeding habits of the Atlantic bluefin tuna, Thunnus thynnus (L. 1758), in the central Mediterranean Sea (Strait of Messina)
The study of feeding habits of the Atlantic bluefin tuna was carried out in 123 specimens, ranging from 115 to 222 cm fork length (FL) and collected during spring seasons of 2010 and 2011 in theExpand
Diet of the spothead lanternfish Diaphus metopoclampus (Cocco, 1829) (Pisces: Myctophidae) in the central Mediterranean Sea
Abstract The feeding habits of the bathypelagic, non-migratory myctophid Diaphus metopoclampus from a shrimp fishing ground area in the Strait of Sicily were analyzed. Overall, 296 adult specimensExpand
Influence of lunar phases, winds and seasonality on the stranding of mesopelagic fish in the Strait of Messina (Central Mediterranean Sea)
The shore stranding of mesopelagic fauna is a recurrent phenomenon in the Strait of Messina (Central Mediterranean Sea). The aim of this paper is to test the influence of lunar phases, winds andExpand
Sustainable water treatment in aquaculture – photolysis and photodynamic therapy for the inactivation of Vibrio species
Species of the genus Vibrio have been recognized as one of the most significant pathogens in aquaculture farming, causing mass mortality of farmed stocks. Photodynamic Antimicrobial ChemotherapyExpand
Capacity of cationic and anionic porphyrins to inactivate the potential aquaculture pathogen Vibrio campbellii
Abstract Photodynamic Antimicrobial Chemotherapy (PACT) has emerged as a promising method for pathogen eradication and control. PACT uses light excitation of non-toxic photosensitisers to produceExpand
Relationship between swordfish swimming behaviour and sea surface temperature in the central Mediterranean Sea during the reproductive period
Abstract Swordfish is the target species for harpoon fishery in the Central Mediterranean Sea (southern Tyrrhenian Sea and Strait of Messina). This is a seasonal fishing activity, carried out inExpand
Sensitivity of live microalgal aquaculture feed to singlet oxygen-based photodynamic therapy
Highly nutritional microalgal species are extensively used in aquaculture as live feedstock. Due to difficulties in maintaining microalgae in axenic conditions, they represent a potential pathogenExpand
Evidence of a predation event on a tagged Mediterranean spearfish (Tetrapturus belone; Pisces, Istiophoridae), inferred from pop-up satellite tagging data
The Strait of Messina is located at the centre of the Mediterranean Sea and is considered a biodiversity hotspot and an obligatory seasonal passage for different pelagic species such as sharks,Expand
