The marcoalga Ulva pertusa was cultured under (20 ± 2)°C, (20 ± 4)°C, (20 ± 6)°C, (20 ± 8)°C and (20 ± 10)°C circadian rhythms of fluctuating temperature conditions, and constant temperature of 20°C was used as the control. The growth rate of macroalga at (20 ± 2)°C, (20 ± 4)°C and (20 ± 6)°C were significantly higher than that at constant temperature of(More)
Probiotics have positive effects on the nutrient digestibility and absorption, immune responses, and growth of aquatic animals, including the sea cucumber (Apostichopus japonicus Selenka). A 60-day feeding trial was conducted to evaluate the effects of Bacillus cereus G19, B. cereus BC-01 and Paracoccus marcusii DB11 supplementation on the growth, immune(More)
This paper reviewed the researches on the effects of diurnal temperature fluctuation on aquatic fauna, including the test species involved, design of thermal regimes, growth responses of aquatic fauna to various fluctuated temperature, and growth-promotion mechanisms of temperature fluctuation. The problems existed in related researches and the application(More)
β-glucan is a prebiotic well known for its beneficial outcomes on sea cucumber health through modifying the host intestinal microbiota. High-throughput sequencing techniques provide an opportunity for the identification and characterization of microbes. In this study, we investigated the intestinal microbial community composition, interaction among species,(More)
Intensive fish aquaculture activities release large amount of nitrogen (NH4-N and NO3-N) to the surrounding waters and lead to water eutrophication. However, integrating a single species of seaweed with the fed fish usually cannot remove both forms of nitrogen efficiently. Polyculture of different seaweeds will be an effective way to reduce the nitrogen(More)
The effects of supplementation with the benthic diatom Cylindrotheca fusiformis on the growth of the sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus and water quality was studied in six sea cucumber culturing ponds (600 m2 each) from November 2011 to November 2012. The nutrients for sea cucumbers in the control group were supplied solely by the spring tide inflow;(More)
Animal gut harbors diverse microbes that play crucial roles in the nutrition uptake, metabolism, and the regulation of host immune responses. The intestinal microbiota homeostasis is critical for health but poorly understood. Probiotics Paracoccus marcusii DB11 and Bacillus cereus G19, and antibiotics florfenicol did not significantly impact species(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the growth and physiological status of Litopenaeus vannamei subjected to one constant temperature (25°C) and four cyclical temperature change regimes (25 ± 1°C, 25 ± 2°C, 25 ± 3°C and 25 ± 4°C). The growth rates of shrimp at 25 ± 2°C or 25 ± 3°C were significantly higher than that at a constant temperature of(More)
The effect of temperature on the growth and energy budget of Chinese shrimp Fenneropenaeus chinensis was studied at 18, 22, 25, 28, 31 and 34 degrees C. The results showed that its specific growth rate in terms of body weight and energy accumulation increased with temperature between 18 degrees C and 31 degrees C, and then decreased significantly at 34(More)
The present study determined the changes in the fatty acid (FA) profiles of juvenile sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus in response to the varied water temperature. Sea cucumbers with similar size (4.02±0.11g) were cultured for 8 weeks at 14°C, 18°C, 22°C and 26°C, respectively. At the end of the experiment, the specific growth rate (SGR) and the profiles(More)
