The evolution of the Argopecten gibbus
stock (Mollusca:Bivalvia), with emphasis on the Tertiary and Quaternary species of eastern North America.
ABSTRACT The gametogenic cycle and breeding season of the calico scallop, Argopecten gibbus was examined in Bermuda using quantitative and qualitative methods.
KEY WORDS: gametogenesis, scallops, spawning, reproduction, subtropical, Argopecten gibbus
Calico scallops, Argopecten gibbus, are largely restricted to the subtemperate and tropical waters of western North Atlantic with the major stocks distributed from Cape Hatteras, North Carolina to the northeastern Gulf of Mexico (Waller 1969); calico scallops have also been collected from the Greater Antilles, Bermuda and the western portions of the Gulf of Mexico (Waller 1969).
The present study describes the gametogenic cycle of Argopecten gibbus inhabiting Bermuda waters.
Gamete maturation for Argopecten gibbus in Bermuda coincided with minimal sea surface temperatures ranging from 16[degrees]C to 18[degrees]C (Doug Connelly, unpublished data).
Growth of the scallops, Argopecten irradians concentricus (Say) and Argopeeten gibbus
(Linne), as influenced by food and temperature.
Larval culture of the calico scallop, Argopecten gibbus
ABSTRACT A simple procedure for transporting live calico scallop, Argopecten gibbus (Linnaeus, 1758), juveniles for grow-out culture is described.
KEY WORDS: Argopecten gibbus, calico scallop, heat shock protein, transport, recovery
In July 2003, 3-too-old calico scallop, Argopecten gibbus (Linnaeus, 1758), spat, originating from a hatchery spawn, were pooled from the nursery system at Bermuda Biologic Station for Research, reared at 26 [+ or -] 1[degrees]C.
