Abstract Manila clam ( Tapes philippinarum Adams and Reeve) broodstocks were conditioned in the hatchery in sand-filtered sea water with diet supplements of either Dunaliella tertiolecta or Skeletonema costatum . Eggs spawned by the Dunaliella broodstock had higher levels of 18:3 ( n − 3) and 20:4 ( n − 6), and lower levels of 20:5 ( n −3) than eggs from the Skeletonema broodstock; this reflected the fatty acid composition of the algal diets. Attempts to induce the clams to spawn were made… CONTINUE READING
