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 ...
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, ...
Identification of potential recruitment bottlenecks in larval stages of the giant fan mussel Pinna nobilis using specific quantitative PCR
Pinna nobilis is an endangered species of fan mussel found along coastal Mediterranean waters requiring special attention for conservation. Populations are restricted in number, due to anthropogenic ...
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 ...
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. ...
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 ...
