A method is described for the identification of concentrated larvae from coal cultures in closed boxes. The condensation drops formed beneath the lid of the culture box are taken up with an L-shaped pipette. The sample taken up is added to a drop of Lugol's solution on a slide and examined under the microscope. The details of the nematode structure are(More)
To limit the risk associated with invasion of habitats by exogenous species, the International Convention for the Control and Management of the Ships' Ballast Water and Sediments was adopted in February 2004 and may soon enter into force. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has produced guidelines to assess the efficacy and reliability of Ballast(More)
We studied the plankton dynamics of two semi-enclosed marine coastal inlets of the north of Jurong Island separated by a causeway (SW Singapore; May 2012-April 2013). The west side of the causeway (west station) has residence times of ca. one year and is markedly eutrophic. The east side (east station) has residence times of one month and presents lower(More)
Cannibalism in copepod culture may limit its production yield and therefore affect the economic interests associated with the use of copepods as live feed in aquaculture. The effects of adult density, egg density, and algal availability were tested on the calanoid copepod Acartia tonsa to understand how these parameters affect cannibalism rates on eggs. The(More)
We analyzed the concentrations of trace metals/metalloids (TMs) in the water, sediment and plankton of two semi-enclosed marine coastal inlets located north of Jurong Island and separated by a causeway (SW Singapore; May 2012-April 2013). The west side of the causeway (west station) has residence times of approximately one year, and the east side of the(More)
It is well established in Denmark to rear calanoid copepods in outdoor tanks for use as live feed during turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) larval production. However, the copepod assemblages, composed of a mixture of all development stages and therefore body sizes, vary over time and do not always match the larval needs. When turbot larvae reach metamorphosis(More)
