Larval growth of green mussel, Perna viridis (Linnaeus, 1758) in hatchery


Author(s): Win Win Nwe

Abstract: The study on the larval growth of Perna viridis (Linnaeus, 1758) from Sitaw was conducted at Shwekyungyi (Russell Island: Lat. 10º 15' N, Long. 98º 15' E) in June 2018. Induced spawning was done by a sudden rise of temperature from 18°C to 30°C and the larvae were successfully reared to setting in the laboratory. Average shell length measurements and the survivability of larvae among antibiotic treatments and control was significantly different (ANOVA; F4,57=5.72, p=0.001<0.05 & F4,57=4.96, p=0.02<0.05). Average shell length and survival of larvae treated with a mixture of penicillin and streptomycin were higher and significantly different than that of the other larvae (F4,57=5.72, p = 0.013 ˂ 0.05). The higher growth and survival rate were observed from the experiment of using a mixture of penicillin and streptomycin. This may be due to the synergic effect of the combination of these two antibiotics. The result of this study is encouraging as this can be successfully induced to spawn in a low cost yet effective way.
