Metamorphosis induction and postlarval growth of the red abalone (Haliotis rufescens) were evaluated in a commercial farm of Baja California, Mexico. This hatchery settles larvae with gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA, 1-mM final concentration) and culture postlarvae in 250-L tanks placed in a four-story structure inside a building with artificial illumination. Eight tanks (four at the top and four at the bottom of a culture structure) were sampled during four months after settlement. Upper tanks… CONTINUE READING
