Six size groups of red abalone Haliotis rufescens (geometric mean shell lengths: 21, 25, 33, 66, 81 and 98 mm) were reared on a macroalgal diet for 4 months at seven different temperatures between 11 and 22 jC. The results demonstrate that red abalone exhibit size dependent variation in growth potential and temperature optimum for growth. The maximum growth rate was found to have a skewed, third degree polynomial relationship with shell length, reaching a maximum of 111 Am day � 1 at 38 mm… CONTINUE READING
