A comparison of macronutrient levels in green mussel (Perna viridis) and brown mussel (Modiolus metcalfei Hanley) T Rochanaburanon -
Journal of the Science Society of Thailand, 1980 - The Science Society of ThailandTwo species of mussel from Panay Island, Philippines, have been analyzed for moisture, crude protein, crude fat, ash, carbohydrated, crude fibre and minerals (calcium and phosphrus). Results showed that the brown mussel (Modiolus metcalfei), both the marketable size and the small ones, have higher protein content (71.49 and 67.10% dry weight) than the marketable-size green mussel (Perna viridis ), 63.94%. The green mussel contained more fat but less ash, crude fibre and minerals than the brown mussel.
Polyculture of green mussels, brown mussels and oysters with shrimp control luminous bacterial disease in a simulated culture system EA Tendencia -
Aquaculture, 2007 - ElsevierShrimp mortality due to luminous bacteria has been a problem of the shrimp industry worldwide. Polyculture of shrimp with finfish, such as grouper, seabass, snapper, siganid, Tilapia hornorum, and the Genetically Improved Farmed Tilapia (GIFT), could control the growth of luminous bacteria. One way to reduce adverse environmental impact and to reduce bacterial count is through the use of bivalves to filter pond effluents. This study investigated the effect of several bivalves on the growth of luminous bacteria in a simulated shrimp culture environment using concrete tanks. Tanks were stocked with shrimp at a biomass of 100 g/m3 and with brown mussel (158 pcs/m3), green mussel (137 pcs/m3), or oyster (376 pcs/m3). Growth of luminous bacteria decreased to below 101 cfu/ml in tanks with green mussel after 5 d, brown mussel after 16 d, and oyster after 17 d. Bivalves, such as green and brown mussels, and oyster, could be used as an alternative species for polyculture with shrimp to control disease due to luminous bacteria.
Conference paperHS Sitoy - In JV Juario & LV Benitez (Eds.), Seminar on Aquaculture Development in Southeast Asia, 8-12 September 1987, Iloilo City, Philippines, 1988 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development CenterThis paper reviews the works on mussel and oyster culture conducted from 1975 to 1985 by the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center Aquaculture Department at Tigbauan, Iloilo, Philippines. Innovative techniques developed in increasing collection of natural seeds and in improving farming techniques are presented. Results of the work on artificial seed production, bacterial depuration, uptake and elimination of heavy metals by green mussel, investigations on red tides, and microbiology of spoilage are discussed.
