Download Biology and ecology of bluefin tuna by Takashi Kitagawa, Shingo Kimura PDF

By Takashi Kitagawa, Shingo Kimura

This ebook specializes in most modern details at the biology and ecology of the 3 bluefin tuna species: the Pacific (Thunnus orientalis), Atlantic (T. thynnus), and southern bluefin tuna (T. maccoyii). within the e-book, the phylogeny and easy ecological details similar to formative years historical past, age and development, and nutrients conduct are lined. details with regards to migratory ecology, and significant organic elements akin to metabolism and energetics, swimming functionality, education, visible body structure, and reproductive body structure also are integrated.

Furthermore, new study insights approximately different types of mathematical types for bluefin tuna ecology are brought. all of the chapters are contributed through energetic scientists engaged in bluefin tuna study. The purpose of this e-book is to give a contribution to a greater realizing of the biology and ecology of bluefin tuna, and inspire undergraduate and graduate scholars who learn this e-book to turn into bluefin tuna scientists who can give a contribution to extra knowing of the biology and ecology of bluefin tuna.

Tanaka et al. (2007b) showed ontogenetic changes in RNA/DNA ratios of hatchery reared larval and juvenile Pacific bluefin tuna in order to elucidate the growth performance. 0 (Fig. 12). After that, the ratio steeply increased to 20 on 23 DAH. In this study, yolk-sac larvae were fed from 19 DAH. Thus, the value of RNA/DNA ratio which is an indicator of protein synthesis activity rapidly increased after the first feeding of yolk-sac larvae. It is suggested that high activity of protein synthesis induced by the onset of piscivory supports the high somatic growth of late-larval to early juvenile stages.
