Aquaculture: Farming Aquatic Animals and Plants
This expanded and fully updated new edition of Aquaculture is a book that is essential reading for all students and professionals studying and working in aquaculture.
Early Larval Development of the Sydney Rock Oyster Saccostrea glomerata Under Near-Future Predictions of CO2-Driven Ocean Acidification
Larval life-history stages are considered particularly susceptible to climate change, and this study shows that S. glomerata larvae are sensitive to a high-CO2 world and are, specifically, negatively affected by exposure to pH conditions predicted for the world's oceans for the year 2100.
The effects of exposure to near-future levels of ocean acidification on shell characteristics of Pinctada fucata (Bivalvia: Pteriidae).
Scanning electron microscopy analysis of the growing edge of nacre lining the shells of P. fucata showed that shells exposed to acidified conditions showed signs of malformation and/or dissolution, when compared to controls, which could have broad impacts on the ecology of pearl oysters and consequences for the cultured pearl industry that relies on them.
A Review of the Nutritional Requirements of Bivalves and the Development of Alternative and Artificial Diets for Bivalve Aquaculture
In the absence of clearly defined artificial diets, dietary vehicles such as microcapsules and spray-dried microalgae are currently the most promising tools to study the nutritional requirements of bivalves.

Marine invertebrate skeleton size varies with latitude, temperature and carbonate saturation: implications for global change and ocean acidification
The variation in trends in shell thickness by taxon suggests that in some circumstances ecological factors may override latitudinal trends, and latitudinal gradients may produce effects similar to those of future CO2 -driven ocean acidification on CaCO3 saturation state.
HATCHERY AND EARLY NURSERY CULTURE OF THE BLACKLIP PEARL OYSTER (PINCTADA MARGARITIFERA L.)
This article reports on spawning induction and larval and early nursery culture of the blacklip pearl oyster Pinctada margaritifera (L.). Spawning was induced using thermal 'shock,' where water…
The effects of supplemental dietary cholesterol on growth, development and survival of mud crab, Scylla serrata, megalopa fed semi-purified diets
Effects of stocking density on growth and survival of early juvenile silver-lip pearl oysters, Pinctada maxima (Jameson), held in suspended nursery culture
