Chemical composition and nutritional quality of sea cucumbers.
Sea cucumbers are a seafood with high protein and low fat levels and fatty acid profiles were different among species, and the comparison showed that T. argus possessed higher nutritional values than other sea cucumber species.
Larval development and juvenile growth of the sea cucumber Stichopus sp. (Curry fish)
Overall, this study demonstrates that Curry fish can be reared in captivity, thus providing an alternative to fisheries and a way to maintain sustainable harvests and eventually contribute to the restoration of the natural populations.
Authentication and traceability of fish maw products from the market using DNA sequencing
The genetic identification of the main commercialized species of fish maws has been carried out, based on the amplification of a fragment of mitochondrial 16S rRNA gene and subsequent BLAST analysis, and results indicated that besides traditional trade in Asia, the fish maw trade has been globally expanded to meet the growing demand of market.
The application of PCR–RFLP and FINS for species identification used in sea cucumbers (Aspidochirotida: Stichopodidae) products from the market
In this study, two molecular methods are developed to identify six species belonging to family Stichopodidae in commercial products and allow us to detect a fraudulent labeling of frozen Apostichopus japonicus product.
High carotenoids content can enhance resistance of selected Pinctada fucata families to high temperature stress
The findings indicated that carotenoids play an important role in improving survival rates of P. fucata under high temperature stress by enhancing animals' antioxidant system, and could serve as an index for breeding stress‐resistant lines in selective breeding practices.
Spawning, larval development and juvenile growth of the sea cucumber Stichopus horrens
The study indicates S. horrens are amenable to culture using standard techniques which may also be applied on the culture of other tropical species, and exhibits a relatively quick growth both in indoor and wild culture.
Species identification of fish maw (Porcupinefish) products sold on the market using DNA sequencing of 16S rRNA and COI genes.
This work facilitates the identification of fish maw products in the market, support of food control and protection of consumers’ rights, and suggested that the Spot-fin porcupinefish D. hystrix maw exists potential food security threat to the consumers.
Molecular identification of seahorse and pipefish species sold as dried seafood in China: A market-based survey to highlight the actual needs for a proper trade
Abstract In this study, COI and 16S rRNA genes were used to molecularly identify dried seahorse and pipefish sold on the Chinese market. One hundred and ninety-eight products, including 168 seahorse
Complete mitochondrial genome of the sea cucumber Stichopus sp. and its application in the identification of this species
The complete sequence of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) from Stichopus sp. (Echinodermata: Holothuroidea: Stichopodidae: Stichopus) was acquired using conventional PCR and long PCR followed by cloning and
Characterization of mitochondrial genome of sea cucumber Stichopus horrens: A novel gene arrangement in Holothuroidea
The complete mitochondrial DNA sequence of sea cucumber Stichopus horrens is presented, the order of the genes in the mitochondrial DNA from the five holothurians that are now available is compared, a novel gene arrangement is found and the complete sequence contains useful information for phylogenetic analyses of metazoa.
