Physiological parameters such as clearance rates, absorption efficiency, oxygen consumption and ammonia excretion were estimated for four size groups ranging from 16 to 60 mm in Dorso Ventral Measurements (DVM) of the marine pearl oyster Pinctada fucata at different water temperatures and the results were integrated by means of two physiological indices, namely Scope For Growth (SFG) and Net Growth Efficiency (K2). The rates of clearance, oxygen consumption and ammonia excretion were found… CONTINUE READING
