Bioremediation potential of the macroalga Gracilaria lemaneiformis (Rhodophyta) integrated into fed fish culture in coastal waters of north China
TLDR
Results indicated that the seaweed is suitable as a good candidate for seaweed/fish integrated mariculture for bioremediation and economic diversification. Expand
Feeding and growth on bivalve biodeposits by the deposit feeder Stichopus japonicus Selenka (Echinodermata: Holothuroidea) co-cultured in lantern nets
TLDR
Bivalve lantern nets can provide a good habitat for sea cucumbers; and the co-culture of bivalve molluscs with sea cucumber may provide an additional valuable crop with no additional inputs. Expand
Seasonal variation in metabolism of cultured Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas, in Sanggou Bay, China
TLDR
Fundamental data is obtained for further establishing an energy budget model and assessing the carrying capacity for cultivation of C. gigas in north China to determine differences among these parameters that act as a function of seasonal variation. Expand
The influence of diets containing dried bivalve feces and/or powdered algae on growth and energy distribution in sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus (Selenka) (Echinodermata : Holothuroidea)
TLDR
It seems a conflict exists between drying bivalve feces to form extruded diets and feeding sea cucumbers with fresh feces which contain beneficial bacteria, which could be helpful in further development of more appropriate diets for culture of holothurians. Expand
Effects of body size and water temperature on food consumption and growth in the sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus (Selenka) with special reference to aestivation
TLDR
To investigate the effects of body size and water temperature on feeding and growth in the sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus (Selenka), the maximum rate of food consumption and specific growth rate in terms of energy and SGRe in animals of three body sizes were determined. Expand
Effects of acute temperature or salinity stress on the immune response in sea cucumber, Apostichopus japonicus.
TLDR
High-temperature stress had a much greater effect on the immune capacities of A. japonicus than did low-tem temperature and salinity stresses. Expand
Studies on mass summer mortality of cultured zhikong scallops (Chlamys farreri Jones et Preston) in China
TLDR
It is possible that the mortalities of cultured zhikong scallops are caused by a combination of several factors such as stress associated with reproduction, high temperature, overcrowding and poor circulation in the growout cages, opportunistic invaders or pathogens, and possibly inbreeding. Expand
Metabolic characteristics of sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus (Selenka) during aestivation
TLDR
With the exception of 15 degrees C, the O/N ratios of large size sea cucumbers was close to 20 across the temperatures used in this study, indicating that their energy Source was a combination of lipid and protein, while on the other hand, apart from small individuals maintained at 10 degreesC, theO/N ratio of the medium and small sea Cucumbers were close to 10, indicatingthat protein was their major energy source. Expand
Influence of filtering and biodeposition by the cultured scallop Chlamys farreri on benthic-pelagic coupling in a eutrophic bay in China
TLDR
This study indicated that filtering-biodeposition by suspension-cultured scallops could exert long-lasting top-down control on phytoplankton biomass and other suspended material in the Sishili Bay ecosystem. Expand
The sea cucumber genome provides insights into morphological evolution and visceral regeneration
TLDR
A complete genome sequence of an economically important sea cucumber, A. japonicus, generated using Illumina and PacBio platforms is presented to provide a useful framework for future research into biological processes and evolution in deuterostomes, including remarkable regenerative abilities that could have medical applications.
