  The freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii exhibits three male morphotypes: Blue Claw (BC) male, Orange Claw (OC) male and Small Male (SM). Effects of bilateral eyestalk ablation on growth and survival of SM freshwater prawn were determined in monosex culture. The SM juveniles (9 g) were used in treatment bilateral eyestalk ablation and control (intact/unablated) at a hatchery. Ablated prawns were stocked at 5 prawn m-2 for 80 days. At the end of the experimental period, the average weight increased from 8.96±1.06 to 40.95±4.01 g, with bilaterally ablated prawns attaining the greatest growth. The final body weight of prawn at harvest was 40.95± 4.01 g in bilateral ablated SM and 22.69±2.41 g in unablated SM. The specific growth rate of bilaterally ablated prawns (1.90%) was significantly higher than unablated prawns (1.15%). The growth trend of SM prawn was increased significantly from the controls. The wet weight of ablated prawns doubled compared to the control but yield was not significantly different due to mortality. The survival of bilaterally ablated prawn was significantly low 50%. The potency of bilateral eyestalk ablation in enhancing growth rates may be limited due to high mortalities of ablated prawn.

  Background and Objective: Meretrix lyrata is hard clam that is found abundantly at Kuching division in Sarawak and used as delicacy by the local people. This study aimed to determine amount of macro and micro-minerals in the soft tissue of M. lyrata. Materials and Methods: Macro and micro-minerals extracted from tissues of Meretrix lyrata, sediment and seawater were determined using air-acetylene flame Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS). The minerals; Na, K, Mg, Ca, Zn, Cu, Mn and Fe were extracted from environment, adductor muscle, foot, gill, mantle and siphon from the clam. Concentration of macro and micro minerals were analysed using one way ANOVA and multivariate analysis. Results: The Na (319.552±9.47 μg g–1) and Fe (19.48±4.726 μg g–1) concentration were high in M. lyrata tissues compared to other elements. This result suggested that M. lyrata tend to accumulate more Na and Fe from the environment and this supported by high concentration of Na and Fe in the seawater. Furthermore, multivariate analysis indicated that tested tissues were grouped according to the mineral elements and not based on tissue variety. Therefore, macro and micro-minerals that accumulated in the M. lyrata tissues were non tissue dependent. Conclusion: The affinity of hard clam tissue to accumulate other elements was high and it depends on availability of the elements in the seawater. Hence, pristine environment was important to harvest hard clam as the food source to prevent consumption of unwanted elements such as heavy metals.
