Paralytic shellfish poisoning toxin accumulation in shellfishes collected from various habitats in Murcielagos Bay, Philippines during harmful algal blooms occurrence RJA Narceda, UM Montojo, MRR Eguia & GL Sia Su -
Advances in Environmental Biology, 2014 - American-Eurasian Network for Scientific Information (AENSI)This study aims to determine whether the habitat of bivalves plays an influence in the occurrence of tropical shellfish toxicity during toxic red tide bloom occurrences in Murcielagos Bay, Misamis Occidental, Philippines. Various shellfish species were collected during the occurrence of red tide blooms. The type of habitat and the shellfish toxicities were investigated. Likewise, the phytoplankton profile in the seawater column was assessed. Results of our study revealed that the occurrence of shellfish toxicities was habitat specific in spite of the fact that the causative organism Pyrodinium bahamense var. compressum was present in low concentrations in the sampling sites. Shellfish collected from sea grass, coralline area, and seafloor habitats were notably susceptible against the paralytic shellfish poisoning toxin contamination compared to those samples obtained from soil substrate. Continuous monitoring of areas that are affected with shellfish toxicity must be conducted so as to safeguard the general public’s welfare dependent on these resources.
Book chapterCL Marte - In IC Liao & EM Leaño (Eds.), Milkfish aquaculture in Asia, 2010 - National Taiwan University; The Fisheries Society of Taiwan; Asian Fisheries Society; World Aquaculture SocietyMilkfish farming has been, and will remain the backbone of Philippine aquaculture. To date, over 260,000 ha of brackishwater ponds, 6, 700 ha of freshwater pens and about 500 ha of marine pens and cages are used to culture this fish. Average milkfish annual production since 1990 is 206,840 mt valued at over ten billion pesos. Annual per capita consumption of milkfish is about 2 kg or 7. 5 % of the total fish (26. 8 kg/per capita) consumed by every Filipino. By the year 2020, the population is predicted to reach 112 million and will require 224,000 mt of milkfish. If production growth rate is maintained at 2.3%, an estimated 400,000 mt will be produced by the year 2020 generating surplus production of close to 200,000 mt. The development of value-added products from the surplus produce will be needed to enhance acceptability of milkfish in the export market and the changing food preference of younger generations. This paper presents a brief overview of the current status of the milkfish industry in the Philippines. Details of, breeding and hatchery technologies, farming systems, marketing, value-added products and research and development are in the various chapters of this book.
