Probiotic effect in vivo of Roseobacter strain 27-4 against Vibrio (Listonella) anguillarum infections in turbot (Scophthalmus maximus L.) larvae
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the probiotic effect of the marine bacterium Roseobacter strain 27-4 in turbot larvae infected with the pathogen Vibrio (Listonella) anguillarum. InitialExpand

Establishment and maintenance of threatened long-snouted seahorse, Hippocampus guttulatus, broodstock in captivity
Knowledge on seahorses is generally scarce but has been increasing in recent years due to their conservation status. Seahorse culture is a quite recent activity in most countries attempting it, andExpand

Control of Vibrio alginolyticus in Artemia culture by treatment with bacterial probiotics
Abstract In order to determine the influence of six lactic acid bacterial (LAB) strains, lactic acid and major extracellular products (ECPs) of LAB on the bacterial load of Artemia culture, twoExpand

Temperature-induced changes of growth and survival in the early development of the seahorse Hippocampus guttulatus
Abstract The effect of temperature (15, 18 and 21 °C) on the early development of the long-snouted seahorse Hippocampus guttulatus were analysed, both under feeding (until day 30 post partum) andExpand

A model for experimental infections with Vibrio (Listonella) anguillarum in first feeding turbot (Scophthalmus maximus L.) larvae under hatchery conditions
Vibriosis is one of the main causes of mortality in all stages of fish. In larvae, further improvements on the control and knowledge of bacterial diseases require the development of models forExpand

Analysis of the diet of the long‐snouted seahorse Hippocampus guttulatus by 18SrDNA amplification of prey in faeces
Breeding in captivity for research or exhibition (e.g. in aquaria) can replace the capture of wild specimens of endangered species and allow controlled reinforcement of wild populations. With thisExpand

Maturation of Hippocampus guttulatus and Hippocampus hippocampus females by manipulation of temperature and photoperiod regimes
Abstract The present study provides new and practical information on the maturation of females seahorses Hippocampus guttulatus and Hippocampus hippocampus exposed to different temperatures (15 °CExpand

Isolation of Vibrio alginolyticus and Vibrio splendidus from captive-bred seahorses with disease symptoms
Vibrio species isolated from diseased seahorses were characterized by PCR amplification of repetitive bacterial DNA elements (rep-PCR) and identified by 16S ribosomal RNA gene sequence analysis. TheExpand
