The influence of the dietary macronutrient balance on the intermediary metabolism of common dentex (Dentex dentex L.) was evaluated. Four experimental diets combining high and low levels of macronutrients were formulated. Dentex fed on 43% protein had higher liver and muscle lipid content, corresponding with an increased hepatic G6PDH activity. This(More)
Muscle growth was studied in larvae of sea bass, Dicentrarchus labrax L., reared at two temperatures: real ambient temperature ( congruent with 15 degrees C during vitelline phase and increased gradually) and 19 degrees C from fertilization until the end of larval development. Muscle cellularity, body length and body weight were measured. Early temperature(More)
In order to determine the temperature effect on the axial muscle growth of sea bass, a stock of larvae was subjected to the following incubation and cultivation temperatures, respectively: 15 degrees C/ambient, 15/17 degrees C, 17 degrees C/ambient and 17/17 degrees C. In all groups the cross-sectional area of white and red muscles and the number and(More)
The aim of this work was to evaluate the effects of prolonged starvation and refeeding on antioxidant status and some metabolic-related parameters in common dentex (Dentex dentex) liver. Fish deprived of food for 5 weeks showed a significant increase in lipid peroxidation, measured as malondialdehyde (MDA) levels. The activity of the antioxidative enzymes(More)
A wide range of antioxidant mechanisms are present in fish maintaining an adequate "oxidative balance". When this balance tilts in favor of the oxidant agents "oxidative stress" arises with detrimental effects in molecules of great biological importance. Little has been reported about the influence of different dietary energy sources on antioxidant defenses(More)
The common dentex is a promising candidate for Mediterranean aquaculture. The present work is aimed at describing the development of the axial musculature from hatching to postlarval life. Transmission electron microscopy, histochemical (NADH-TR and mATPase) and immunohistochemical techniques (S-58 and TUNEL) have been used. At hatching superficial red and(More)
Two feeding trials were carried out to evaluate the efficiency of probiotics and maslinic acid, on growth and survival of juvenile dentex; liver proteolytic activities were also investigated in the second trial. For experiment 1, triplicate groups were fed six diets with two probiotics (Bacillus toyoi, T, and B. cereus, E) at increasing levels (0.5, 1 and 2(More)
Shi drum specimens were maintained under four different photoperiod regimes: a natural photoperiod regime (16L:8D), constant light (24L), equal durations of light and dark (12L:12D) and a reduced number of daylight hours (6L:18D) from hatching until the end of larval metamorphosis. Specimens were then kept under natural photoperiod conditions until 111 days(More)

Fibre-type differentiation of the lateral musculature has been studied in Sparus aurata (L.) and Dicentrarchus labrax (L.) during larval development. Histochemical and ultrastructural techniques show two presumptive muscle layers and two germinative zones of presumptive myoblasts. At hatching, myotomal muscle consists of a monolayer of thin undifferentiated(More)
Digestive physiology of on-growing common dentex (Dentex dentex), including protease, amylase and lipase activity in stomach, pyloric caeca, anterior and posterior intestine, was evaluated. The influence of dietary macronutrient balance on these digestive processes was also assessed. Four experimental diets with different protein:lipid:carbohydrate ratios(More)
