Genetic variations in marine natural population - Measurement and utility in resource management and conservation: A review
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1998)
A number of molecular and biochemical tools which can be applied to the identification of species and the detection of genetic variation within species have been developed in recent years. All these methods rely on the ...
Proximate biochemical composition and caloric potential in the raft-grown green mussel Perna viridis
(Marine Biological Association of India, 1995)
The biochemical components of the mussel tissue, cultured on the raft were estimated. The range of variation in the content of moisture, protein, carbohydrates, lipid, organic carbon and ash were 66.8-90.1; 46.2-67.4; ...
Annual cycle of metabolites in relation to breeding and feeding in Ambassis commersoni in Goa waters
(Society of Biosciences, 2000)
Seasonal variations in moisture, proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and ash content in both the sexes of Ambassis commersoni were studied separately over an annual cycle (1989-1990). The results indicate that percentage of ...
