  The aim of the present study was to study the effect of different diets on proteolytic enzymes activity during early larval marble goby. The trypsin and chymotrypsin levels of the arvae fed on the various types of food using clear water were very low: 3.635-3.916UmgG tissue and 1.034-1.204UmgG tissue, while the trypsin 1 1 and chymotrypsin levels of the larvae fed with the same types food using green water were higher: 5.274-5.873UmgG tissue and 1.556-2.236 UmgG tissue. Among the treatments using green water, the highest trypsin 1 1 and chymotrypsin levels were observed in the larvae fed on live food (nauplii of copepods mixed auplii of rotifer). However, there were no significant difference of trypsin and chymotrypsin levels (p>0.05) among the larvae fed with different types of food using clear water group and those using green water group.

  This study investigates the mating behavior and success of commercially important crab, Portunus pelagicus through the induction of limb autotomy technique. In the first treatment, the newly mature female crabs were limb autotomized and only perpetuate the swimming paddles. Second treatment (control) consists of newly mature female crabs (intact crabs) which are placed in a mating tank together with an inter-molt male crab. The female crabs which showed signs of molting were transferred to the mating tank with the ratio of 1:1 (male:female). About 2 weeks after the limb autotomy induction, all female crabs in the first treatment has successfully molted and entered the post-molt (soft-shell) stage. The post-molt female crabs were then transferred to mating tanks together with inter-molt male crabs to observe for any mating success. Results for both treatments demonstrate that successful mating among crabs was observed in the first treatment and as for controls no mating process was observed.

  The objective of the present study was to evaluate the effects of fresh natural foods on spermatophore quality and analysis by the way of sperm weight, count, viability as well as the proximate analysis of offered food and shrimp broodstock. The experiment was carried out with the three following treatments: fresh squid, polychaete and cockle up to 6 weeks. All parameters were measured by the starting of 3rd week (14 days) and at the end of 6th week (45 days) of the experiment. Spermatophore quality was evaluated by spermatophore weight, sperm count, viability and proximate analysis of the treatments and shrimps. Proximate analysis was performed by method described in AOAC in 1995 and spermatophore count and viability was determined by sperm suspension using modified eosin-nigrosin staining method. At the end of treatments the sperm viability and count, shrimp and spermatophore weight were significantly different among treatments and control (p<0.05). Lipids content in squid was 8.52±0.13% and it was significantly higher by 102.8% than cockle (4.2±0.3%). Whereas, polychaete with 6.86±0.07% which was 63.3% higher than cockle. Also, squid fed to shrimp had the highest level lipids (3.3±0.15%), it was significantly higher about 17.85% as compared to the control (2.8±0.15%). The present study concludes that the fresh squid diet is highly preferred over other diets due to its higher influence on increasing the spermatophore quality, therefore use of fresh squid only is recommended for the maturation of male P. merguiensis broodstock.
