Ayu Plecoglossus altivelis, a herbivorous fish, is an important fishery resource and key component of the foodweb in many Japanese streams. Radionuclide contamination of this species is likely transferred to higher trophic levels, include humans, in the food chain. After the Fukushima accident in March 2011, ayu were exposed to highly contaminated silt(More)
This paper reports neutron-induced MCU (Multiple Cell Upset) measured in 0.4-V 65-nm 10T SRAM at two incident angles of 0 and 60 . The measurement results show that the ratio of the number of measured MCUs at the angles of 60 to that at 0 is 1.13 in 0.4-V operation, while the ratio of neutrons radiated to the test chip was 50% at 60 . The spatial MCU(More)
Densities of two sympatric amphidromous grazing fishes, Plecoglossus altivelis and Sicyopterus japonicus, and gross primary production of benthic algae were investigated at the second, third and fourth-order sites located, respectively, 7.0, 6.7 and 3.6 km from the mouth of the Choshi River, Japan. Gross primary production estimated by multiplying gross(More)
Ecological characteristics of Japanese dace Tribolodon hakonensis were investigated in three small streams in Niigata Prefecture from 2001 to 2005 with special reference to the effect of Ayu Plecoglossus altivelis altivelis on the dace. Japanese dace were distributed in short sections below dams near the mouth of the streams flowing into the Sea of Japan.(More)
The Fukushima nuclear accident led to deposition of radionuclides into the freshwater fishery ground of ayu Plecoglossus altivelis. For the purpose of more comprehensive understanding of the radioactive contamination, cesium-137 (137Cs) was analyzed in running water, muddy sediment, attached algae, and ayu using samples from three river systems with(More)
We determined tributyltin (TBT) concentrations in bivalve samples of blue mussel (Myitlus edulis), Manila clam (Ruditapes philippinarum) and pen shell (Atrina pectinata) collected from coastal areas around northern Kyushu in 1998 and 2001. TBT was detected in all bivalve samples collected, ranging in concentration from 0.008 to 0.135 microg/g wet wt. In(More)
The size of the territory defended by the grazing fish ayu, Plecoglossus altivelis, often increases with decreasing intruder pressure. This territorial extension occurs even after additional growth of the fish reaches a plateau due to a surplus supply of algal food. This raises questions about the ecological advantages of defending an apparently enlarged(More)
The thermal phase transition behavior of water incorporated in crosslinked polystyrene-divinylbenzene copolymer (PS-DVB) gel packings for liquid chromatography was investigated by differential scanning calorimetry. Free or bulk water, freezable bound or intermediate water, and nonfreezing water were observed for TSKgel Styrene-250 samples, while only free(More)
We examined the effects of tributyltin (TBT) on aerobic and anaerobic energy metabolism of pen shell (Atrina pectinata japonica). We exposed pen shells to TBT at nominal concentrations of 0 (control) and 1.0microg/l for 72h under aerobic condition. At the end of the exposure, half of the pen shells in each treatment were wrapped in plastic wrap to simulate(More)
