Complete Genome Sequence of Vibrio coralliilyticus RE22, a Marine Bacterium Pathogenic toward Larval Shellfish

Vibrio coralliilyticus RE22 is an indigenous marine pathogen that infects larval bivalve shellfish. This strain is particularly problematic in oyster hatcheries, where it causes high larval mortality. It contains two circular chromosomes and one megaplasmid. Annotation reveals multiple genes which may encode important virulence factors. Gary P. Richards, Brewster F. Kingham, Olga Shevchenko, Michael A. … Continue reading Complete Genome Sequence of Vibrio coralliilyticus RE22, a Marine Bacterium Pathogenic toward Larval Shellfish

Shellfish seed supply for aquaculture in the UK : report on views collected from the industry in 2017

Results of the survey reveal that Pacific oyster growers are by far the largest market for hatchery produced shellfish seed for on-growing in UK waters. Among growers, there are generally no concerns about the availability of Pacific oyster seed at levels necessary to maintain current production volumes. In addition, current growers, due to a combination … Continue reading Shellfish seed supply for aquaculture in the UK : report on views collected from the industry in 2017

Vivaldi project : Great success for the stakeholders workshop, 29 August 2018 in Aqua 2018

Acting together to better prevent and mitigate farmed shellfish diseases On 29 August 2018, in the framework of Aqua 2018 in Montpellier (F), the VIVALDI consortium organised an open workshop entitled “Acting together to better prevent and mitigate farmed bivalve diseases”, with the support of Ifremer, Aqua 2018, CeMEB and Montpellier University. On that occasion, … Continue reading Vivaldi project : Great success for the stakeholders workshop, 29 August 2018 in Aqua 2018

Seasonal occurrence of Perkinsus spp. and tissue distribution of P. olseni in clam (Soletellina acuta) from coastal waters of Wuchuan County, southern China

Seasonal occurrence of Perkinsus spp. infection in the wild clam, Soletellina acuta, along the coast of Wuchuan County, southern China was investigated over one year using conventional polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method combined with sequencing technique. The tissue distribution of P. olseni in (S. acuta) was also compared among four tissues, namely the gill, mantle, … Continue reading Seasonal occurrence of Perkinsus spp. and tissue distribution of P. olseni in clam (Soletellina acuta) from coastal waters of Wuchuan County, southern China

Pathogens of marine bivalves in Maine (USA): A historical perspective

Shellfish aquaculture (in particular oyster cultivation) has the potential to play a significant role in refreshing the coastal economy in the state of Maine (USA). Although ocean warming and acidification are often listed as the primary manifestations of climate change in the marine environment, the issue of expanding geographic ranges of parasites and pathogens is … Continue reading Pathogens of marine bivalves in Maine (USA): A historical perspective

Environmental controls of oyster-pathogenic Vibrio spp. in Oregon estuaries and a shellfish hatchery

Vibrio spp. have been a persistent concern for coastal bivalve hatcheries, which are vulnerable to environmental pathogens in seawater used for rearing larvae, yet the biogeochemical drivers of oyster-pathogenic Vibrio in their planktonic state are poorly understood. Here, we present data tracking oyster-pathogenic Vibrio bacteria in Netarts Bay and Yaquina Bay, Oregon, USA, as well … Continue reading Environmental controls of oyster-pathogenic Vibrio spp. in Oregon estuaries and a shellfish hatchery
