We report here the outcomes of studies on the total carotenoid composition in tissues of sexually mature and immature bivalves A. kagoshimensis. Gonadal maturation was found to be accompanied by a redistribution of total carotenoids across the body. In the prespawn period, a highest level of total carotenoids (TC) was detected in the gonads (3.97 ± 1.25 mg/100 g wet weight), however, allowing for mass-dimensional tissues characteristics, the molluscan foot still accounted for a major portion of… CONTINUE READING
