Abstract The packing and shipping of live marine organisms always poses a potential risk to their survival and well-being, with the costs associated with these practices being paramount for marine ornamental species value chains. The present study describes two experiments employing the longsnout seahorse Hippocampus reidi (~ 80 mm) as a model seahorse species to optimize its packing methods for live shipping. The first experiment evaluated the combined effect of seahorse density (1 ind. per 300...

ABSTRACTSeahorses are currently experiencing an unprecedented level of anthropogenic pressure promoted by habitat destruction and increasing fishing effort to supply premium markets. This study provides an overview of the scientific literature on seahorses in the 21st century and critically discusses five major knowledge gaps and research opportunities to advance the state of the art on this research field. The average number of publications per year increased from 10 (2001–2002) to ∼40 (2001–20...

The use of adult Artemia is uncommon in aquaculture and limited to feeding adults of species not accepting inert diets. The aim of the present study was the development of a standardized technique for adult Artemia production in small volumes (25–100 L), and the assessment of ongrowing and enrichment diets for enhancement of n-3 highly unsaturated fatty acid (HUFA) content. We firstly assessed the effect of initial nauplii density (1, 2, and 3 nauplii mL−1) and food dose (x1, x2, and x3 quantiti...

The lack of integrated measures for assessing the feeding ecology of seahorses may restrict the effectiveness of conservation actions on wild populations of worldwide threatened seahorse species. Identifying dietary sources will allow researchers to determine their degree of vulnerability to environmental changes, redefine their conservation status and apply appropriate management strategies. The resource use of the seahorse Hippocampus guttulatus inhabiting coastal waters of Galicia (north-west...

AbstractDifferences in survival and growth rates in seahorseHippocampus guttulatus juveniles feeding on Artemiasp.or copepods have been related to specific digestivecapacities of seahorse newborn, which are capableof actively forage on available prey from the firstday of live. Other seahorse species, such asH. abdominalis and H. hippocampus, show high suc-cess feeding on Artemia nauplii suggesting species-specific differences in the digestibility of prey amongseahorses. In this study, the profiles o...

Seahorses are ambush predators that swallow the prey through their tubular snout. In order to better understand mouth growth and its effect on prey preference by juveniles of the seahorse Hippocampus guttulatus, experimental assays were carried out by feeding juveniles (0–30 – d after male's pouch release [dar]) on a mixture of rotifers, Brachionus plicatilis; Artemia nauplii; and copepods; Acartia tonsa. Mouth development in juveniles was accomplished by growth of upper and lower jaws, which we...

Breeding in captivity for research or exhibition (e.g. in aquaria) can replace the capture of wild specimens of endangered species and allow controlled reinforcement of wild populations. With this aim, diet analysis and establishing the adequate prey are determinant factors for breeding success. However, non-invasive approaches such as faecal DNA analysis are advisable for analysing the diet of these species. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to demonstrate the usefulness of faecal DNA...

This study was focused on conservation genetics of threatened Hippocampus guttulatus on the Atlantic coast of NW Iberian Peninsula. Information about spatial structure and temporal stability of wild populations was obtained based on microsatellite markers, and used for monitoring a captive breeding program firstly initiated in this zone at the facilities of the Institute of Marine Research (Vigo, Spain). No significant major genetic structure was observed regarding the biogeographical barrier of...
