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 ...
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. ...
Detection of Gambierdiscus and Fukuyoa single cells using recombinase polymerase amplification combined with a sandwich hybridization assay
(Journal of Applied Phycology, 2021-04-10)
Dinoflagellates of the genera Gambierdiscus and Fukuyoa are known to produce several bioactive compounds including the potent neurotoxic ciguatoxins (CTXs) which are able to accumulate in fish and through ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
