Detection of isothermally amplified ostreid herpesvirus 1 DNA in Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas) using a miniaturised electrochemical biosensor
Given the threat that ostreid herpesvirus 1 (OsHV-1) poses to shellfish aquaculture, the need for rapid, user-friendly and cost-effective methods to detect this marine pathogen and minimise its impact is evident. In this ...
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 ...
Fast analysis of relevant contaminants mixture in commercial shellfish
One of the major challenges currently faced is to develop systematic ways of addressing chemical mixtures in environmental assessment. With this purpose, a simple, rapid, and sensitive method for the detection and ...
