Pinna nobilis in suboptimal environments are more tolerant to disease but more vulnerable to severe weather phenomena
(Marine Environmental Research, 2020-11-30)
We examined a disease outbreak of the fan mussel, Pinna nobilis (L.), in the Alfacs Bay (South Ebro Delta, Spain) during a period of two years in three zones exposed to a summer salinity gradient resulting ...
Ostreopsis cf. ovata and Ostreopsis lenticularis (Dinophyceae: Gonyaulacales) in the Galapagos Marine Reserve
(Scientia Marina, 2020-06-15)
The genus of benthic dinoflagellates Ostreopsis is of particular interest because some species negatively impact human health and coastal marine ecosystems. Ostreopsis populations from a remote area, ...
Gambierdiscus and Fukuyoa as potential indicators of ciguatera risk in the Balearic Islands
(Harmful Algae, 2020-10-22)
Gambierdiscus and Fukuyoa are genera of toxic dinoflagellates which were mainly considered as endemic to marine intertropical areas, and that are well known as producers of ciguatoxins (CTXs) and ...
Further Advance of Gambierdiscus Species in the Canary Islands, with the First Report of Gambierdiscus belizeanus
Ciguatera Poisoning (CP) is a human food-borne poisoning that has been known since ancient times to be found mainly in tropical and subtropical areas, which occurs when fish or very rarely invertebrates ...
Vibrio mediterranei, a Potential Emerging Pathogen of Marine Fauna: Investigation of pathogenicity using a bacterial challenge in Pinna nobilis and development of a species‐specific PCR
(Journal of Applied Microbiology, 2020-06-27)
Aims Extreme mortality events affecting Pinna nobilis, some associated to Vibrio mediterranei, have depleted many populations of this bivalve. The objective of this study was to demonstrate pathogenicity ...
Use of anionic polymer-coated magnetic beads to pre-concentrate Ostreid Herpesvirus 1 from seawater: Application to a UV disinfection treatment
Ostreid Herpesvirus 1 (OsHV-1) represents a serious threat to shellfish aquaculture worldwide. To minimise its impact, early warning systems able to detect the virus in seawater prior to infection of ...
