Dynamics of the Pacific Oyster Pathobiota during mortality episodes in Europe assessed by 16S rRNA gene profiling and a new target enrichment next‐generation sequencing strategy
(Environmental Microbiology, 2019-07-20)
Infectious agents such as the bacteria Vibrio aestuarianus or Ostreid herpesvirus 1 (OsHV‐1) have been repeatedly associated with dramatic disease outbreaks of Crassostrea gigas beds in Europe. Beside roles played by these ...
Multibiomarker biomonitoring approach using three bivalve species in the Ebro Delta (Catalonia, Spain)
(Environmental Science and Pollution Research, 2018-10-31)
Bivalves have proved to be useful bioindicators for environmental pollution. In the present study, mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis), cockles (Cerastoderma edule), and razor shells (Solen marginatus) were collected in ...
Breeding, planktonic and settlement factors shape recruitment patterns of one of the last remaining major population of Pinna nobilis within Spanish waters
The pen shell, Pinna nobilis L., is a critically endangered bivalve threatened by mass mortality events throughout the Mediterranean, but the Alfacs Bay (Ebro Delta) still hosts many healthy individuals. Herein, we study ...
Presence of Vibrio mediterranei associated to major mortality in stabled individuals of Pinna nobilis L.
A major epizootic event attributed to Haplosporidium pinnae leading to 100% mortality of Pinna nobilis L. populations along Mediterranean coastlines started in the fall of 2016. As a result, a project to rescue 221 adult ...
Growth of juvenile Pinna nobilis in captivity conditions: Dietary and pathological constraints
The fan mussel, Pinna nobilis, is an endemic Mediterranean species, whose populations have been seriously affected by infectious diseases. The effect of diet composition on growth and survival rates, and on nutritional ...
