Nutrition of Litopenaeus vannamei reared in tanks or in ponds
Abstract The Pacific white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei (Boone) is the most important shrimp species cultivated in the Americas. More than 90% of the shrimp cultivated in 1998 on the AmericanExpand
The effect of dissolved oxygen and salinity on oxygen consumption, ammonia excretion and osmotic pressure of Penaeus setiferus (Linnaeus) juveniles
Abstract The white shrimp Penaeus setiferus (Linnaeus) is an abundant species in the coastal lagoons and estuaries of the Gulf of Mexico. This species is well adapted to environments of low salinityExpand
Physiological, nutritional, and immunological role of dietary β 1-3 glucan and ascorbic acid 2-monophosphate in Litopenaeus vannamei juveniles
The present study was designed to determine the effect of dietary β 1-3 glucan (BG) and a megadose of vitamin C on the nutrition (growth and survival, blood glucose, lactate, acylglycerides,Expand
The effect of starvation on refeeding, digestive enzyme activity, oxygen consumption, and ammonia excretion in juvenile white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei
Juveniles of the white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei were kept Without food for between 0 to 15 clays to evaluate the impact of starvation oil physiologic state (oxygen consumption, poststarvationExpand
Blood metabolites and hemocyanin of the white shrimp, Litopenaeus vannamei: the effect of culture conditions and a comparison with other crustacean species
Oxyhemocyanin (OxyHc), blood protein, glucose, acylglycerol (AG), and lactate of Litopenaeus vannamei juveniles were investigated. Statistical analyses were done on baseline values for eachExpand
The effects of fish hydrolysate (CPSP) level on Octopus maya (Voss and Solis) diet: Digestive enzyme activity, blood metabolites, and energy balance
As has been demonstrated in previous studies, Octopus maya can be fed on artificial diets. In the present study six different diets were assayed. Five diets were designed to test the effect ofExpand
Utilization of carbohydrates by shrimp
Glucose metabolism was extensively studied in Crustacea during the 60's and 70's with an emphasis on decapods. In decapods juveniles can be described precisely at each step of intermolt cycle whichExpand
Effects of a dry pelleted diet on growth and survival of the Yucatan octopus, Octopus maya
The effect of a dry pelleted diet on growth of the Yucatan octopus (Octopus maya) was determined and compared with crab diet (Callinectes spp). Two groups of 15 wild collected animals were used.Expand
Effect of dietary protein and energy levels on growth, oxygen consumption, haemolymph and digestive gland carbohydrates, nitrogen excretion and osmotic pressure of Litopenaeus vannamei (Boone) and L.
The influence of protein and energy levels on growth rate, survival, pre- and post-prandial oxygen consumption, ammonia excretion, haemolymph glucose (HG), glycogen in digestive gland and osmoticExpand
