Growth Response of the Freshwater Prawn, Macrobrachium rosenbergii (De Man), to Diets Having Different Levels of Biogen®
TLDR
The additions of Biogen® in the diets (2 or 3%) improves and enhance the growth performance of Macrobrachium rosenbergii larvae.
CHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF FRESHWATER CRAYFISH {PROCAMBARUS CLARKII) AND ITS NUTRITIVE VALUE
TLDR
The present study reveals that the higher protein content in muscle of males may be due to its faster growth rate than females, and it is safely to conclude that the flesh of P. clarkii is recommended to stand as a source of animal protein for Egyptian citizens and its carapace can be used as a forage for animals.
Studies on diseased freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii infected with Vibrio vulnificus.
TLDR
The present study was aimed at isolation and characterization of the pathogenic bacterium from diseased freshwater prawn and the isolated pathogen was characterized as Vibrio vulnificus, which showed different degrees of sensitivity to different antimicrobial agents.
HISTOPATHOLOGICAL AND PCR DIAGNOSTC TECHNIQUES FOR DETECTION OF WHITE SPOT SYNDROME VIRUS IN DIFFERENT TISSUES OF PROCAMBARUS CLARKII
TLDR
The present results reported that freshwater crayfish P. clarkii is susceptible species for WSSV infection in Egypt, and more work is also required to understand viral receptor and how virus evades the innate immune response.
