  Effects of simultaneous exposure of Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas, to both a harmful dinoflagellate that produces Paralytic Shellfish Toxins (PST), Alexandrium minutum, and cadmium (Cd) and copper (Cu), were s were exposed to a mix of Cd–Cu with two different diets (i.e. A. minutum or Tisochrysis lutea) and compared to control oysters fed A. minutum or T. lutea Cited by:   (). Seasonal variation in the reproductive activity and biochemical composition of the Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas) from the Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand. New Zealand Journal of Marine and Freshwater Research: Vol. 37, No. 1, pp. Cited by:   1. Introduction. Since , mass mortality events of Crassostrea gigas of less than one year old have been occurring along all oyster rearing sites on the French coast (EFSA, , Jolivel and Fleury, ), threatening the exploitation of this valuable resource at an unprecedented oyster mortalities had been reported for decades in many countries (Samain and McCombie, ) Cited by:   Application of a dynamic energy budget model to the Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas, reared under various environmental conditions. J. Sea Res. Robert, R., G. Trut, M. Borel & D. Maurer. Growth, fatness and gross biochemical composition of the Japanese oyster Crassostrea gigas in Stanway cylinders in the Bay of Arcachon, France.

  We compared growth simulations by dynamic energy budget (DEB) and scope for growth (SFG) models of the Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas, cultivated in Bourgneuf Bay on the French Atlantic bay is located at a latitude in the middle of the European range of the species, and is characterized by high concentrations of suspended particulate matter (SPM) and a marked gradient . The Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas, is a common oyster species that grows individually or in dense mats on rocks and soft substrates in temperate tidal and sub-tidal zones (Hughes ). It is most easily identified by its blue-gray shell with highly fluted edges (Fig. 1).   Simultaneous physiological (metabolic and excretion rates) and biochemical evaluations (shell/tissue growth, protein, lipid, carbohydrate content, and enzyme activity of the electron transport system) were performed on four batches of hatchery-produced, Pacific oysters (Crassostrea gigas), in order to assess the physiological basis for metamorphic energy demands and postlarval mortality. We studied the feasibility of selective breeding to reduce heavy metal content through a quantitative genetic analysis of heavy metals accumulation in the Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas by opportunistically sampling a factorial mating experiment initiated in to study the effects of parent size on offspring growth and survival.

Volume , 1 November , Transcriptional changes of Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas reveal essential role of calcium signal pathway in response to CO 2-driven acidification.   We evaluated the impacts of the temperature and diet on the growth, survival and biochemical composition in the Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas spat, cultured in the laboratory for 8 weeks at 23, 26, 29 and 32°C and fed Isochrysis sp.‐Pavlova lutheri (IP) and Dunaliella tertiolecta (Dt). The growth and biochemical composition showed a. The Pacific oyster is also a very temperature tolerant species, as it can withstand a range from to 35 °C. Biology Sexuality. The Pacific oyster has separate sexes, but hermaphrodites sometimes do exist. Their sex can be determined by examining the gonads, and it can change from year to year, normally during the winter. Crassostrea gigas is a sentinel species along the Italian coast. In mussels, the levels of oxidative stress biomarkers can be modulated by several environmental pollutants or pathogens and also fluctuate in response to reproductive stages and seasonal changes. In this study, adult Crassostrea gigas .
