Molecular cloning of a cDNA encoding 6-phosphofructo-2-kinase/fructose-2,6-bisphosphatase from liver of Sparus aurata: nutritional regulation of enzyme expression. (1/903)

A cDNA clone encoding full-length 6-phosphofructo-2-kinase/fructose-2,6-bisphosphatase (6PF-2-K/Fru-2, 6-P2ase) was isolated and sequenced from a Sparus aurata liver cDNA library. The 2527 bp nucleotide sequence of the cDNA contains a 73 bp 5'-untranslated region (5'-UTR), an open reading frame that encodes a 469 amino acid protein and 1041 bp at the 3'-UTR. The deduced amino acid sequence is the first inferred 6PF-2-K/Fru-2, 6-P2ase in fish. The kinase and bisphosphatase domains, where the residues described as crucial for the mechanism of reaction of the bifunctional enzyme are located, present a high degree of homology with other liver isoenzymes. However, within the first 30 amino acids at the N-terminal regulatory domain of the fish enzyme a low homology is found. Nutritional regulation of the 6-phosphofructo-2-kinase activity, together with immunodetectable protein and mRNA levels of 6PF-2-K/Fru-2,6-P2ase, was observed after starvation and refeeding. In contrast to results previously described for rat liver, the decrease in immunodetectable protein and kinase activity caused by starvation was associated in the teleostean fish to a decrease in mRNA levels.  (+info)

Sequence and expression of a cDNA encoding the red sea bream androgen receptor. (2/903)

The cDNA of the androgen receptor (AR) has been isolated from the ovary of red sea bream, Pagrus major, and sequenced. The amino acid sequence of red sea bream AR (rsAR) shows about 45% identity with that of Xenopus, rat, mouse, and human AR. It is shown that rsAR has the ability to trans-activate the responsive gene depending on the presence of androgen.  (+info)

Virus susceptibility of the fish cell line SAF-1 derived from gilt-head seabream. (3/903)

The recently reported SAF-1 cell line from fins of gilt-head seabream was evaluated for susceptibility to lymphocystis disease virus (LDV) and to several salmonid fish viruses, such as infectious haematopoietic necrosis virus (IHNV), viral haemorrhagic septicemia virus (VHSV) and several strains of infectious pancreatic necrosis virus (IPNV). LDV, VHSV and IHNV replicated well in the cultured fin cells as demonstrated by cell lysis and increases in viral titer. The potential use of this cell line to detect viruses from fish marine species is discussed.  (+info)

Dietary chromic oxide does not affect the utilization of organic compounds but can alter the utilization of mineral salts in gilthead sea bream Sparus aurata. (4/903)

This study was conducted to determine whether the level of chromic oxide supplemented to diets containing gelatinized starch as the carbohydrate source affects digestibility, body composition, growth performances, and liver enzyme activities in gilthead sea bream, Sparus aurata. Gilthead sea bream fingerlings were fed diets containing gelatinized corn starch as the carbohydrate source and several levels of chromic oxide (0, 5, 10 and 20 g/kg) for 6 wk. No effect of dietary chromium level was detected on carbon, nitrogen, or dry matter digestibility. Calcium and phosphorus digestibility were higher in fish fed the diet supplemented with 5 g/kg chromic oxide than in fish fed the other supplemented diets. Dietary chromium did not affect dry matter, carbon, nitrogen, protein, or lipid concentrations in fish. However, fish fed 5 g/kg chromic oxide generally had higher levels of calcium, phosphorus, and ash than fish fed the other Cr-containing diets. Chromium concentration was significantly higher in fish fed the diets with 0.5 and 1% chromic oxide than in fish fed the control diet. Chromium supplementation of the diets did not affect the specific growth rate, the food efficiency ratio, the protein efficiency ratio, or, protein or nitrogen retention of the fish. Blood glucose and the activity of several liver enzymes involved in carbohydrate metabolism were unaffected by dietary chromic oxide. Alanine aminotransferase was lower in the fish fed the diet with 10 g/kg of chromic oxide than in unsupplemented controls. Our results indicate that chromic oxide can be used as a neutral marker in fish nutrition studies involving organic compounds, but not mineral salts.  (+info)

Molecular phylogenetic evidence for the evolution of specialization in anemonefishes. (5/903)

Anemonefishes (genera: Amphiprion and Premnas; family Pomacentridae) are a group of 28 species of coral reef fishes that are found in obligate symbiosis with large tropical sea anemones. A phylogenetic hypothesis based on morphological analyses of this group suggests that the ancestral anemonefish was a generalist with similar morphology to other pomacentrids, and that it gave rise to other anemonefish species that were more specialized for living with particular species of host anemones. To test this hypothesis we constructed a molecular phylogeny for the anemonefishes by sequencing 1140 base pairs of the cytochrome b gene and 522 base pairs of the 16S rRNA gene for six species of anemonefishes (representatives of all subgenera and species complexes) and two other pomacentrid species. Three methods of phylogenetic analysis all strongly supported the conclusion that anemonefishes are a monophyletic group. The molecular phylogeny differs from the tree based on morphological data in that the two species of specialized anemonefishes (Premnas biaculeatus and Amphiprion ocellaris) were assigned to a basal position within the clade, and the extreme host generalist (Amphiprion clarkii) to a more derived position. Thus, the initial anemonefish ancestors were probably host specialists and subsequent speciation events led to a combination of generalist and specialist groups. Further phylogenetic studies of additional anemonefish species are required to substantiate this hypothesis.  (+info)

Effects of GH, prolactin and cortisol on hepatic heat shock protein 70 expression in a marine teleost Sparus sarba. (6/903)

Heat shock protein 70 (HSP70) expression was assessed in hepatic tissue of a marine teleost Sparus sarba after exogenous hormone administration. Using a PCR-amplified, homologous HSP70 cDNA clone, as a probe in Northern analysis, we detected a 2.3 kb transcript which was elevated after exposure to a temperature 7 degrees C above the ambient. For our studies on hormonal effects on HSP70 expression, groups of fish were administered recombinant bream GH (rbGH), ovine prolactin (oPRL) or cortisol daily over a 7-day period. Quantification of hepatic HSP70 transcript revealed that the administration of GH and PRL significantly reduced HSP70 mRNA abundance by 42% and 54% from saline-injected fish respectively. Also hepatic HSP70 levels were reduced by 76% and 64% as determined by immunoblotting after rbGH and oPRL treatment respectively. The administration of exogenous cortisol did not alter hepatic HSP70 mRNA or protein levels in S. sarba. The results obtained in this study are the first evidence for hormonal modulation of heat shock protein expression in fish. The significance of these results is discussed within the context of current knowledge on the roles of these hormones in teleostean stress response.  (+info)

Lunar cycles in diel prey migrations exert a stronger effect on the diving of juveniles than adult Galapagos fur seals. (8/903)

In our study of the development of diving in Galapagos fur seals, we analysed changes in diving activity and body mass trends over the lunar cycle. Based on previously observed lunar cycles in colony attendance patterns, we hypothesized a greater impact of prey migrations of deep scattering layer organisms on younger fur seals. Using electronic dive recorders, we determined that seals dived less and deeper on moonlit nights than at new moon, and incurred body mass losses. These changes in foraging over the lunar cycle correlate with the suppression of the vertical migration of prey by lunar light. All effects were more pronounced in juveniles than adult females, with greater relative mass loss during full moon, which must (i) negatively affect long-term juvenile growth rates, (ii) lengthen periods of maternal dependence, and (iii) contribute to the lowest reproductive rate reported for seals. This underlines the importance of studying ontogeny in order to understand life histories, and for determining the susceptibility of animal populations to fluctuations in food availability.  (+info)

We developed a specific competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for yellowtail kingfish (Seriola lalandi) follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). We previously produced a full-length single chain recombinant yellowtail kingfish FSH using the Pichia pastoris expression system. We used the same method to produce the β subunit of the hormone, against which polyclonal antibodies were raised in rabbits. We first confirmed immunoreactivity of the polyclonal antibodies with the recombinant full length FSH and FSHβ as well as plasma and pituitary FSH of sexually immature and mature yellowtail kingfish by Western blot analysis. We then developed a precise and reproducible ELISA for yellowtail kingfish FSH and validated the assay in plasma and pituitary extracts. The intra- and inter-assay coefficients of variation was ...
Chemosensory receptors, which are all G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), come in four types: odorant receptors (ORs), vomeronasal receptors, trace-amine associated receptors and formyl peptide receptor-like proteins. The ORs are the most important receptors for detecting a wide range of environmental chemicals in daily life. Most fish OR genes have been identified from genome databases following the completion of the genome sequencing projects of many fishes. However, it remains unclear whether these OR genes from the genome databases are actually expressed in the fish olfactory epithelium. Thus, it is necessary to clone the OR mRNAs directly from the olfactory epithelium and to examine their expression status. Eighty-nine full-length and 22 partial OR cDNA sequences were isolated from the olfactory epithelium of the large yellow croaker, Larimichthys crocea. Bayesian phylogenetic analysis classified the vertebrate OR genes into two types, with several clades within each type, and showed that the L.

Newly hatched Artemia nauplii (@450 microns) are too large for croaker larvae to ingest at first feeding. Beginning at day three, post-hatch, rotifers (Brachionus sp.) are a common food source for marine fish larvae due to their smaller size (90-250 microns) although they must be cultured as a live feed. Houde and Ramsey (1971) successfully reared croaker larvae under static conditions by maintaining them for approximately one week in a dense culture of Chlorella phytoplankton followed by a slow water exchange rate with copepod nauplii and other wild zooplankters introduced at that time. Further research feeding copepod nauplii to early larval stages is warranted. However, recommended hatchery production and feeding regimes for croaker have been successful following standard practices for red drum (Sciaenops ocellatus) (Chamberlain et al. 1990). Best results are obtained when larvae are reared in a static culture of Isochrysis galbana (phytoplankton) or similar algae with high levels of ...
A broad biomarker approach was applied to study the effects of marine pollution along the Swedish west coast using the teleost eelpout (Zoarces viviparus) as the sentinel species. Measurements were performed on different biological levels, from the molecular to the organismal, including measurements of messenger RNA (mRNA), proteins, cellular and tissue changes, and reproductive success. Results revealed that eelpout captured in Stenungsund had significantly higher hepatic ethoxyresorufin O-deethylase activity, high levels of both cytochrome P4501A and diablo homolog mRNA, and high prevalence of dead larvae and nuclear damage in erythrocytes. Eelpout collected in Göteborg harbor displayed extensive macrovesicular steatosis, whereby the majority of hepatocytes were affected throughout the liver, which could indicate an effect on lipid metabolism. Results also indicate that eelpouts collected at polluted sites might have an affected immune system, with lower mRNA expression of genes involved in the
The overall goal of this research was to verify the involvement of membrane progestin receptor alpha (mPRα) in mediating progestin-stimulated sperm hypermotility in the Atlantic croaker and southern flounder. Sperm motility in Atlantic croaker and southern flounder were tested with both the endogenous progestin, 17,20β,21-trihydroxy-4-pregnen-3-one (20β-S) or the selective mPRα agonist, 10-ethenyl-19-norprogesterone (Org OD 02-0). In croaker, the Pi3k/Akt/Pde and ErbB2/Mapk intracellular signaling pathways were examined. The role of mPRα in mediating sperm hypermotility and fertility in southern flounder was also studied. The effects of seasonal hypoxia on sperm motility in croaker were investigated in a field study in the northern Gulf of Mexico in the fall of 2010. Finally, the effects of acidified activator solution (simulating ocean acidification) were studied in the laboratory. In vitro, Org OD 02-0 mimicked the stimulatory actions of 20β-S in inducing sperm hypermotility and ...
Red snapper Hg concentrations were dependent on the region of capture within the Gulf, with fish collected off the coast of Alabama having the highest concentrations of Hg, followed by Texas, and then Louisiana. Five percent of fish collected off the coast of Alabama exceeded U.S. Environmental Protection Agency guidelines of 1,500 ng/g dry weight for safe consumption, whereas no fish collected off the coast of Texas and ,1% of fish collected off the coast of Louisiana exceeded these guidelines (Fig. 3). While a majority of Alabama samples were collected from fishing rodeos, which resulted in the average size of fish collected from Alabama being larger than the average size of fish collected from other regions, Alabama red snapper still had higher concentrations of Hg even when equivalent size classes (i.e., 400-600 mm) were considered.. Regional differences in Hg availability may explain observed differences in red snapper Hg concentrations among regions. According to previous studies, direct ...
Hypoxia is an endocrine disruptor, altering estrogen, testosterone, and progestin hormone levels and stunting gonadal growth in Atlantic croaker. Steroids act through specific hormone receptors to alter reproductive functions, and the hormonal response is dependent on the concentrations of these receptors. However, information is currently lacking on the effects of hypoxia on expression and functions of membrane receptors mediating rapid, non-genomic steroid actions such as final oocyte maturation and apoptosis. Atlantic croakers were exposed to normoxia (7.0 mg DO/L) or hypoxia (1.7 mg DO/L) for 6 weeks during their period of gonadal recrudescence (October-December). Relative gene expression was quantified using quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR). mRNA expression of the membrane androgen receptor, ZIP9, was increased in hypoxia-exposed fish compared to normoxia-exposed controls, whereas mRNA expression of the membrane estrogen receptor, GPER, and membrane progestin receptor, mPRα, was ...

In January 2017, leading recreational fishing organizations released a report that identifies possible management options for the Gulf of Mexico Red Snapper fishery. How to best manage this important recreational fishery has come under increasing scrutiny, and controversy, resulting in growing angler frustration.. The report, Examination of Possible Private Recreational Management Options for Gulf of Mexico Red Snapper, is intended to provide fisheries managers with detailed information about alternative options for managing the fishery that may produce improved fishing access.. The report was produced by the Gulf Angler Focus Group initiative, which was created and supported by the American Sportfishing Association, Coastal Conservation Association, Congressional Sportsmens Foundation and the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership.. The purpose of the Gulf Angler Focus Group was to develop a compendium of management options that could help ensure a healthy red snapper stock while ...
Amphiprion latifasciatus (Madagascar anemonefish) is a marine fish belonging to the family Pomacentridae, the clownfishes and damselfishes. Clownfish or anemonefish are fishes that, in the wild, form symbiotic mutualisms with sea anemones and are unaffected by the stinging tentacles of the host anemone, see Amphiprioninae § Symbiosis and mutualism. The sea anemone protects the clownfish from predators, as well as providing food through the scraps left from the anemones meals and occasional dead anemone tentacles. In return, the clownfish defends the anemone from its predators, and parasites. Clownfish are small-sized, 10-18 centimetres (3.9-7.1 in), and depending on species, they are overall yellow, orange, or a reddish or blackish color, and many show white bars or patches. Within species there may be color variations, most commonly according to distribution, but also based on sex, age and host anemone. Clownfish are found in warmer waters of the Indian and Pacific oceans and the Red Sea in ...

The nosestripe clownfish or nosestripe anemonefish,skunk clownfish, Amphiprion akallopisos, is an anemonefish (also called clownfish) that lives in association with sea anemones. A. akallopisos is found in the Indian Ocean. It resides in shallow inshore reefs as deep as 15 m with a moderate to strong current. The skunk clownfish can also be kept in captivity by aquarists. The skunk clownfish is identified by a light orange color, with a single, narrow, white stripe running from the mouth to the caudal peduncle, and can grow as large as 11 cm in length.[1] Like other anemonefish, the skunk clownfish is a protandrous hermaphrodite, and maintains a hierarchy within the host anemone that consists of a mating pair, of which the female is the largest, and non-mating males which get progressively smaller in size. A. akallopisos does not have a melanistic variation when associated with Stichodactyla mertensii unlike some other species of anemonefish, including A. chrysogaster, A. chrysopterus, A. ...
A molecular approach was developed to distinguish species of red snappers among commercial salted fish products. The specific fragments of the mitochondrial 12S rRNA gene, which were about 450bp, were obtained using the semi-nested polymerase chain reaction (semi-nested PCR). Subsequently, PCR arnplicons were sequenced, aiming to select restriction endonucleases that generated species-specific restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) profiles. Discrimination of red snappers Lutjanus sanguineus, Lutjanus erythopterus from Lutjanus argentimaculatus, Lutjanus malabarius and other morphologically similar fishes such as Lethrinus leutjanus and Pinjalo pinjalo was feasible by one restriction digestion reaction with three endonucleases Hae III, Sca I and SnaB I, however, for discrimination of L. sanguineus and L. erythopterus, another restriction digestion reaction with single restriction endonuclease Mae II was needed. The semi-nested PCR-RFLP was demonstrated to be reliable in species ...
Thirty immature juvenile grouper Epinephelus coioides (19-168 g bodyweight, BW) were randomly stocked in four units 6 t tanks to determine if mibolerone can be used to induce sex inversion in groupers. After acclimatization and weaning to artificial feed, the feed given daily (4% BW/day) was supplemented with 0, 50, 100, and 200 μg mibolerone/kg feed for about 18 weeks. Thereafter, the hormone treatment was withdrawn and the experiment was terminated at Week 24. Ten fish were killed for gonad histology at stocking to serve as an initial control while about three to five fish were killed every 8 weeks. In general, ovaries of initial controls showed the presence of moderate stromal cells and gonia and few primary oocytes. At Weeks 8 and 16, ovaries of the control fish (0 μg/kg) were similar to that of the initial control except that primary oocytes increased at Week 24. Gonads of fish fed diets containing 100 and 200 μg/kg had none to moderate spermatocytes and few spermatids at Week 8 and 16, ...

When conducting digestibility experiments with fish many researchers encounter problems that result in erroneous digestibility coefficients. Erroneous digestibility coefficients result from variability in the raw data which is amplified by the formulae used to calculate them. Variation can stem from natural differences in the digestibility of the same diet between individuals or groups of fish. It can also creep insidiously into studies due to poor preparation and mixing of ingredients or problems with the collection of faecal material or the veracity of analytical results. Therefore, it is fairly common to expect variability in data collected from digestibility trials with fish. But what can be done about it? In this paper, we present an experiment with yellowtail kingfish (Seriola lalandi) that was done to determine whether the digestibility of extruded wheat (EW) was affected by its inclusion rate (10, 20, 30 or 40% diet(-1)). The experiment, based on the indicator-ratio method, was conducted ...
Setting up home in the stinging tentacles of a sea anemone might seem like a risky option, but anemonefish - popularly known as clownfish - are perfectly content in their unlikely abode. Fending off peckish anemone predators in return for refuge, plucky clownfish have achieved a satisfactory arrangement with their deadly partners. Yet Joe Szczebak from Auburn University, USA, wondered whether there might be more to the unconventional collaboration than met the eye. According to Szczeback, coral reefs are awash with oxygen during the day, but levels can plummet overnight when photosynthesis has ceased. Adding that some damselfish waft oxygen-rich water over corals at night to supplement their oxygen supply, Szczebak wondered whether clownfish might have struck a similar deal with their anemone hosts. There had been almost no research done on the clownfish-anemone mutualism at night, explains Szczebak, so he and his Masters thesis advisor, Nanette Chadwick, decided to find out whether clownfish ...
Investigation of the Gene Encoding Isotocin and its Expression in Cinnamon Clownfish, Amphiprion melanopus - Arginine vasotocin;cinnamon clownfish;isotocin;osmoregulation;
Background Clownfishes (Pomacentridae) are brightly colored coral reef fishes well known for their mutualistic symbiosis with tropical sea anemones. These fishes live in social groups in which there is a size-based dominance hierarchy. In this structure where sex is socially controlled, agonistic interactions are numerous and serve to maintain size differences between individuals adjacent in rank. Clownfishes are also prolific callers whose sounds seem to play an important role in the social hierarchy. Here, we aim to review and to synthesize the diversity of sounds produced by clownfishes in order to emphasize the importance of acoustic signals in their way of life. Methodology/Principal Findings Recording the different acoustic behaviors indicated that sounds are divided into two main categories: aggressive sounds produced in conjunction with threat postures (charge and chase), and submissive sounds always emitted when fish exhibited head shaking movements (i.e. a submissive posture). Both types of

The snappers are a prominent family of predatory fishes found in all tropical waters and often associated with reef or mangrove habitats. The deeper-water species, in particular, are an important component of fisheries in the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico. There are numerous snapper species in the region and most of them can be found on or near coral reefs. The shallow-water snappers are almost all members of the large genus Lutjanus. The one exception, the Yellowtail Snapper Ocyurus chrysurus, falls well within the Lutjanus clade in phylogenetic studies. There are four additional deep-water lutjanid genera, three of which have only a single Caribbean representative.. Larval snappers exhibit the standard percoid characters shared to some degree by many other families: a wide body, large round eye, large terminal mouth, stout spines in the fins and a short anal fin with three spines. Later-stage lutjanid larvae are distinctive in having a large non-serrated spine at the angle of the ...
A 6 °C increase in temperature resulted in significant increases in Umax,c and COTnet in S. japonicus. Standard metabolic rate (SMR) was expected to vary with temperature, but did not, possibly because the fish were acclimated to their respective temperatures or because of the relatively small temperature difference and the large error associated with extrapolation to obtain the SMRs. The only other comparable energetics data for mackerel are from Shadwick and Steffensen (2000), who estimated SMR at 14-15 °C for S. japonicus using procedures similar to those in the present study. Their values (90-120 mg O2 h-1 kg-1 for 145-199 g fish) fall within the range that we measured for similar-sized fish (85-290 mg O2 h-1 kg-1 for 145-179 g fish at 18 °C and 95-177 mg O2 h-1 kg-1 for 144-156 g fish at 24 °C). Thus, when estimated by extrapolation to zero speed, there seems to be little measurable change in SMR between 14 and 24 °C for S. japonicus when fish are acclimated to the respective ...

Despite vehement opposition from recreational-fishing advocacy groups, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says it has worked up a pilot program that will award a significant portion of the states red snapper haul to select recreational anglers. The department announced the plan in a Thursday afternoon press release, just one day after meeting with pro-recreational fishing groups and mentioning nothing about the program. The structure would be similar to what exists in the commercial sector, where fishers have been awarded percentages of the overall commercial quota, and may harvest their red snapper at any time during the year. The system, called individual fishing quotas, has been panned by recreational-fishing organizations as well as good-government groups because it has set up so-called Sea Lords, who own quota and make hundreds of thousands of dollars on a public resource without ever leaving the dock. click here to read this story 20:20. ...
Introduction. Goldband snapper (Pristipomoides multidens) has an unusually long shelf life compared to many other fish species. Previous studies have indicated that the microflora present on the fish skin influences shelf life, however, no extensive studies have been performed. A comprehensive investigation into the shelf life of goldband snapper was undertaken in this study using microbiological, biochemical, sensory and physical analyses. Saddletail snapper (Lutjanus malabaricus) was used as a control species because it is genetically similar to goldband snapper, found in a similar geographic location but has a shorter shelf life. The implications of discovering the reasons for an increased shelf life are significant for the Australian fishing industry, in particular Western Australia, where transit times are extensive. It may be possible to use the knowledge gained by investigating goldband snapper to extend the shelf life of other tropical fish species.Methods. Bacterial viable counts were ...
1.Indirect interactions resulting from changes in organismal traits such as behaviour, i.e. trait-mediated indirect interactions (TMIIs), are widespread in biological communities, yet few studies have explored the potential for mutualisms to initiate TMIIs. 2.This study used a combination of behavioural observations and manipulative field experiments to investigate potential TMIIs resulting from a mutualism between specialized cleaner fish and theclients that visit cleaners for the removal of ectoparasites. 3.Behavioural observations indicate that the bluestreak cleaner wrasse, Labroides dimidiatus, increases local predation pressure on corals at cleaner stations by attracting corallivorous butterflyfish to their territories. 4. Observations of the ornate butterflyfish, Chaetodon ornatissimus, suggest a trade-off between seeking cleaning and foraging; individuals decreased their foraging rate at cleaner stations and shifted their diet to include a greater proportion of less preferred prey ...

The genetic diversity and population structure of the small yellow croaker (Larimichthys polyactis) were investigated based on seven microsatellite markers. Two hundred and twenty-six individuals were collected from ten locations from the Bohai Sea, the Yellow Sea and the East China Sea. Relatively high genetic variation (He = 0.826-0.873) and very low genetic differentiation (Fst = 0.001-0.029) between populations were checked, which were attributed by high mutation rate, large population size, wide distribution and diverse habitats. L. polyactis had not undergone recent genetic bottleneck events, which was supported by Wilcoxon signed-rank test and mode-shift indicator of allele frequency distribution. UPGMA tree revealed that the cluster results had no connection with isolation by distance. The knowledge on genetic diversity and population structure will be crucial to establish appropriate fishery management for the species.
Elevated carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration in seawater has previously been demonstrated to have a range of negative impacts on marine fish. While ocean acidification is a well-known context in which elevated CO2 occurs, fish reared in recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) may also be exposed to elevated CO2, and at concentrations which are even many times higher. The yellowtail kingfish (Seriola lalandi) and snapper (Chrysophrys auratus) are two marine fish species of high economic value in New Zealand which may be affected by elevated CO2 concentrations. To assess the effect of elevated CO2 on the growth, feed conversion, and respiratory physiology of yellowtail kingfish, juvenile kingfish (~230g) were reared in a 54 day growth-trial under the following CO2concentrations: (1) ,5mgL-1(ambient-control), (2) 10-15mgL-1, (3) ~20mgL-1, (4) ~30mgL-1, (5) ~40mgL-1 Specific growth rates (SGRM) were greatest in ambient CO2 concentration (1), but this did not significantly differ from concentration ...

The blue-striped snapper Lutjanus kasmira (Perciformes, Lutjanidae) are cosmopolitan in the Indo-Pacific but were introduced into Oahu, Hawaii, USA, in the 1950s and have since colonized most of the archipelago. Studies of microparasites in blue-striped snappers from Hawaii revealed chlamydia-like organisms (CLO) infecting the spleen and kidney, characterized by intracellular basophilic granular inclusions containing Gram-negative and Gimenez-positive bacteria similar in appearance to epitheliocysts when seen under light microscopy. We provide molecular evidence that CLO are a new member of Chlamydiae, i.e. Candidatus Renichlamydia lutjani, that represents the first reported case of chlamydial infection in organs other than the gill in fishes. ...
T-cell surface glycoprotein CD8 consists of two distinguished chains, termed α and β chains, and functions as a co-receptor for the T-cell receptor by binding to MHC class I proteins. In this study we report the cloning and identification of both CD8α and CD8β genes from orange-spotted grouper (Epinephelus coioides). The predicted grouper CD8α and CD8β proteins were structurally similar to other f ...

The clown fish is a kind of fish. Clownfishes habitat usually is a coral reefs. Clownfish live in the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean, from north west Australia, the coast of South East Asia as far north as Japan.[1] Often, they live in a symbiosis with other animals, for instance the sea anemone. They live in anemones which are like plants under the sea. Anemones eat fish by killing them with their tentacles which are poisonous. Scientists believe that clown fish are protected from the poison because they are coated in a type of mucus.[1] Some kinds of clown fishes can grow up and reach 18 centimeters (7.1 inches). Sometimes clownfishes only grow 10 centimeters (3.9 inches). They can be orange, yellow or they may look a little red. Clownfishes eat small invertebrates that are dangerous to the anemones. That helps the anemones and the clownfishes. This is called mutualism. ...
BOZA-ABARCA, J et al. Hormone-induced spawning of wild and captive-grown spotted rose snapper Lutjanus guttatus using carp pituitary suspension and human chorionic gonadotropin. Cienc. mar [online]. 2011, vol.37, n.2, pp.125-139. ISSN 0185-3880.. Hormone-induced spawning of the spotted rose snapper Lutjanus guttatus was studied using wild and cage-grown fish. Carp pituitary suspension (CPS) and human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) were assessed. Wild females (0.7-2.1 kg body weight (BW), n = 18) were collected by hook and line in the Gulf of Nicoya, Costa Rica, to induce final maturation and ovulation in the laboratory. In the first experiment, five doses of CPS were evaluated and spawning was only observed at the higher doses (4.0 and 4.5 mg CPS kg-1 BW); the doses used were lower than for other species under similar conditions. In the second experiment, CPS and hCG protocols were compared using cage-grown broodstock (n = 30 females, 462-995 g; n = 60 males, 400-600 g); egg production was more ...
The Pomacentridae (damselfish) and Apogonidae (cardinalfish) are among the most common fish families on coral reefs and in the aquarium trade. Members of both families undergo a pelagic larvae phase prior to settlement on the reef, where adults play key roles in benthic habitat structuring and trophic interactions. Fish-associated microbial communities (microbiomes) significantly influence fish health and ecology, yet little is known of how microbiomes change with life stage. We quantified the taxonomic (16S rRNA gene) composition of whole gut microbiomes from ten species of damselfish and two species of cardinalfish from Lizard Island, Australia, focusing specifically on comparisons between pelagic larvae prior to settlement on the reef versus post-settlement juvenile and adult individuals. On average, microbiome phylogenetic diversity increased from pre- to post-settlement, and was unrelated to the microbial composition in the surrounding water column. However, this trend varied among species,
In recent years the increased prevalence of chemotherapeutant resistance in salmon lice has led to dramatic changes in lice management in the Norwegian aquaculture industry. Use of cleaner fish for biocontrol of salmon lice has increased significantly over the last three years in all regions from Rogaland to Nordland. According to the FHL webside www.lusedata.no, 40% of all Norwegian salmon localities use cleaner fish as part of their louse control strategy.. The most common fish currently in use are wild-caught goldsinney,-ballan-, and corkwing wrasse. An estimated 16 million wrasse were captured for this purpose in 2010. Farming of ballan wrasse and lumpsucker remain in the pioneer phase. There is a huge requirement for knowledge relating to health management in cleaner fish species, in particular there is a need for identification and characterisation of the main diseases affecting these fish. Only when the main diseases are identified can preventative and ameliorating measures, including ...

This study aimed to evaluate the shelf-life of mechanically filleted well-fed Atlantic mackerel during frozen storage at −25 °C and effect of treatment with antioxidants (sodium erythorbate and a polyphosphate mixture) and different antioxidant application methods (dipping, spraying and glazing). Both physicochemical measurements and sensory analysis were applied. Antioxidant treatments prolonged shelf-life of mackerel. Sensory analysis indicated that untreated fillets had a shelf-life of less than 2.5 months, while all antioxidant treated fillets exceeded that. The most effective treatment, dipping fillets into a sodium erythorbate solution, yielding a shelf-life of 15 months. Physicochemical methods used to evaluate degradation of lipids in the fillets were free fatty acids (FFA), lipid hydroperoxides (PV) and thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS). They did not correlate with sensory results and might therefore be a questionable choice for evaluation of oxidation and development of rancid
Gonadal-specific aromatase encoded by cyp19a1a is the important enzyme controlling estrogen biosynthesis in teleosts. In the present study, the cDNA sequence of cyp19a1a was cloned and characterized from miiuy croaker Miichthys miiuy. The cDNA encoded a protein of 519 amino acids with five structural regions. Higher identities of amino acid sequences and conserved structural regions were found between Mmcyp19a1a and other cyp19a1a genes. In addition, Mmcyp19a1a was clustered together with other seawater fishes. Immunohistochemical analysis revealed that Mmcyp19a1a was localized exclusively in the cytoplasmic of thecal and granulosa cells surrounding the oocytes. Both the protein and mRNA levels of Mmcyp19a1a were increased significantly at the stage III follicles (mid-vitellogenic) and then decreased along with vitellogenesis ...
The cause of ongoing mortality in barramundi Lates calcarifer (Bloch) in seawater culture was identified as Streptococcus iniae by biochemical and physiological tests. This is the first published record of this bacterial species in Australia and the first confirmed report of S. iniae causing mortality in barramundi. The bacterium was highly pathogenic for barramundi when challenged by bath exposure. The pathogen was found to have a LD sub(50) of 2.5 x 10 super(5) and 3.2 x 10 super(4) colony-forming units at 48 h and 10 d respectively. Experimental challenge of barramundi resulted in high levels of mortality (,40%) within a 48 h period. Ten days after the challenge, S. iniae could not be isolated from kidney, spleen, liver or eye of surviving fish. However, the organism was easily isolated from the brain of both moribund and healthy fish, indicating that barramundi can carry the bacterium asymptomatically.. ...

Marine fish has been shown to be susceptible to parasites, bacteria, viral and fungal infections. In marine environment, Vibrio species are commonly found and can lead to an infection known as vibriosis. Vibriosis causes bloody lesion to the fish muscles and extensive haemorrhage to the internal organs to the marine fish. It is a zoonotic disease causing septicaemia, gastroenteritis and necrotising fasciitis following exposure of wounds to contaminated sea water or fish. In this study, we examined and sampled tiger grouper (Epinephelus fuscoguttatus ) cultured in deep sea cages until harvest time. The sampling period was started from February to August 2014, following more than 50% mortality. Clinical signs were noted and compared with the microbiological isolations, especially Vibrio spp. and specific viral isolations. Histopathology changes and water quality parameters were also noted. Fish infected with vibriosis showed signs of body ulcerations and haemorrhages of the fins and body with ...

Discussion. The expected and observed heterozygosity values and the degree of polymorphism found for the dourado and palombeta morphotypes in this study can be considered high compared to values usually sampled in fish using allozymes as molecular markers (Ward et al., 1994). Moreover, Pla and Pujolar (1999) analysed the genetic variation for 735 young specimens of C. hippurus from six locations in the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean using allozyme electrophoresis and observed low heterozygosity (mean of 0.0425 for the six populations sampled) and a low polymorphism rate (23.33% of the loci of the six populations). The difference between the levels of genetic variation found in the present study and those found by Pla and Pujolar (1999) can be explained by the loci that were sampled. In the study by Pla and Pujolar (1999), of the 30 loci sampled, 22 were monomorphic, whereas in the present study, only one of the 17 loci sampled had only one allele, and the two studies only sampled three ...
