Estimating larval supply of Ezo abalone Haliotis discus hannai in a small bay using a coupled particle-tracking and hydrodynamic model: insights into the establishment of harvest refugia
- Performance of a new artificial abalone hatchery culture system in terms of settlement of larvae and growth and survival of postlarvalHaliotis discus discus(Reeve). Stott, Adrian E.; Takeuchi, Toshio; Koike, Yasuyuki // Fisheries Science;Dec2004, Vol. 70 Issue 6, p1070
A new abalone postlarval culture system, Stott's abalone postlarval production system (SAPPS), is being developed as an alternative method for settling larvae and on-growing postlarval abalone. SAPPS was tested in trial 1 using two commercially available artificial diets, Adam and Amos (Adam;...
- Growth Relative to Growth at Current pH. // CO2 Science;12/28/2011, Vol. 14 Issue 52, p7
A chart is presented that outlines the growth relative to growth at current pH of several marine organisms such as Haliotis coccoradiata and Heliocidaris erythrogramma.
- abalone. Morton, Mark // Cupboard Love;1997, p18
A definition of the term "abalone" and its etymology is presented. It refers to an edible mollusc commonly found off the coast of California. The scientific name of this mollusc is Haliotis, a Greek compound meaning sea-ear, so named because its shell is shaped like the human ear. Ear shell is...
- Induction of abalone larval metamorphosis by thyroid hormones. Fukazawa, Hirotatsu; Hirai, Hirokazu; Hori, Hidenari; Roberts, Rodney D; Nukaya, Hauro; Ishida, Hitoshi; Tsuji, Kuniro // Fisheries Science;Oct2001, Vol. 67 Issue 5, p985

- UNDERWATER UPS AND DOWNS. Duane, Daniel // Sierra;Mar/Apr2006, Vol. 91 Issue 2, p42
The article discusses the author's experience of diving into the last abalone fishery of California. He along with Mark James went to dive and collect specimen of abalone. James protects abalone by diving deep and taking specimens by hand. James disappeared suddenly and when he tried to follow...
- Brominated Diterpenes of Marine Origin. J.- M. Kornprobst; H.- S. Al-Easa // Current Organic Chemistry;Aug2003, Vol. 7 Issue 12, p1181
Between 1971 and 2000, eighty brominated diterpenes were isolated from only two groups of marine organisms: red algae and gastropods, so it is likely that all bromoditerpenes only originate from Rhodophyceae and herbivorous molluscs which feed on them. Occurrence and general considerations on...
- ab·a·lo·ne. // American Heritage Student Science Dictionary;2009, p1
A description of the group of edible mollusks called abalone is presented. These mollusks have large, ear-shaped shells.
- HYDROPHOBIC LARVAL SHELLS: ANOTHER CHARACTER FOR HIGHER LEVEL SYSTEMATICS OF GASTROPODS. COLLIN, RACHEL // Journal of Molluscan Studies;Aug1997, Vol. 63 Issue 3, p425
Higher level relationships within the Gastropoda are difficult to determine, in part due to the paucity of identified synapomorphic characters. Larval shell hydrophobicity may be a useful additional character for gastropod family systematics. A survey of 57 species indicates that larval shell...
- Mortality of the short-neck clam Ruditapes philippinarum induced by the toxic dinoflagellate Heterocapsa circularisquama. Basti, Leila; Segawa, Susumu // Fisheries Science;Jul2010, Vol. 76 Issue 4, p625
Mortality of the short-neck clam Ruditapes philippinarum exposed to the toxic dinoflagellate Heterocapsa circularisquama was studied under controlled conditions to clarify the mechanisms of recurrent mass deaths of clams occurring in western Japanese coastal areas. One-week mortality tests,...
