Changes in amino acid content of an algal feed species (Navicula sp.) and their effect on growth and survival of juvenile abalone (Haliotis rubra)

Daume, S; Long, Benedict; Crouch, P


The growth and survival of juvenile Haliotis rubra, when fed with the diatom Navicula sp. cultured in f/2 medium containing combined nitrogen at 24.71 mg NO3-N L-1 (high), 12.35 mg NO3-N L-1 (standard) or 2.47 mg NO3-N L-1 (low), were compared in a 33-day trial. The alga in the low nitrogen medium contained 37% less total amino acid than that in the high and standard nitrogen media. There was a slightly greater reduction in essential amino acids (40%) compared to non-essential amino acids...[Show more]
