Like all other abalone, Haliotis asinina is a member of a large molluscan class, the Gastropoda which are characterized by having single-piece. The abalone, Haliotis asinina, is a large, highly active tropical abalone that feeds at night on shallow coral reefs where oxygen levels of the water may be low. Feeding, growth and survival of hatchery-bred juvenile abalone, Haliotis asinina ( mean initial shell lengths: 32 mm) stocked at 25, 50 and m-2 of shelter.

Drawing shows that mantle in gray covers the majority of the dorsal surface of the animal. Retrieved from ” https: The adductor muscle is a delicacy in parts of the world which has led to it being extensively harvested from the wild. Some people claim that it is much tastier than coldwater species, and is the favorite species in Asia. These holes collectively make up what is known as the selenizone which form as the shell grows.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Essentials of fish nutrition, feeds, and feeding of tropical aquatic species- Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center. Several major transitions in shell pattern and morphology can be observed during the life of Haliotis asinina.

Haliotis asinina – Wikipedia

Seaweeds, corals, bivalves and gastropods. Haliotis asinina Linnaeus These large scale morphological changes are accompanied by mineralogical and crystallographic changes. BMC Evolutionary Biology 7: Request copy Request this document.


After d, avereage daily growth rate mean: This chapter teaches the reader to: These large animals are nocturnal.

Don’t need the entire report? While the initial teloconch is not pigmented, it is textured and opaque such that postlarval shell growth is easily discerned from the larval shell. A sensory structure, the epipodium, is an extension of the foot that bears tentacles and projects beyond the shell edge in the living abalone. Trochophore of Haliotis asinina 11 hours post-fertilisation, with a calcified protoconch pc.

Title Larvae Caption Veliger larvae of Haliotis asinina. They all have pores along the outer edge of the shell which are distinguishing features. Furthermore, it is at this stage of development that the first recognisable tablets of nacre can be detected.

Halootis asinina – Asses Ear abalone- is the largest of the tropical abalone and is widely distributed throughout the Indo-Pacific Region McNarnara and Johnson Generate a print friendly version containing only the sections you need.

WoRMS – World Register of Marine Species – Haliotis asinina Linnaeus,

The asihina shell teleoconch is laid down rapidly following metamorphosis with marked variation in the rate of its production between individuals. This shell pattern may enhance the juvenile’s ability to camouflage on the heterogeneous background of the CCA they inhabit at this stage of development. They have a pair of bipectinate ctenidia which are well-developed epipodial tentacles and a rhipidoglossate radula Lindberg The epipodium is generally pigmented and this is often used as a distinguishing character between species.


Note the similarity of the markings to the Sierpinski triangle.

Views Read Edit View history. They graze amongst turf algae and inhabit the undersides of boulders and coral bommies.

The growth rate of Haliotis asinina is the fastest of all the abalones. The material in this section is presented in sequence beginning with the processing of basic ingredients to remove xsinina factors, followed by steps in feed preparation, from the easiest to the more complex processes, and storage.

With further growth, the ridge-valley structure fades to give rise to a smooth adult shell, with irregular brown-green triangles on a light brown background.

In this way the larval shell protoconch is formed. Structurally, a pronounced series of ridges and valleys and a line of respiratory pores tremata have appeared.

This chapter discusses how to evaluate feedstuffs and feeds.
