    Ecological experiment was conducted in this paper to study the allometric growth in Squaliobarbus curriculus larvae and juveniles from Zhaoqing Reach of the Pearl River. The results showed that after first feeding, the organs associated to swimming, feeling and feeding of larvae differentiated rapidly, and exhibited allometric growth. The head length, tail length and head height exhibited positive allometric growth, while trunk length exhibited negative allometric growth before reaching the growth inflexion point 20 d after first feeding, and positive allometric growth after the inflection point. Body height exhibited positive allometric growth both before and after the growth inflexion point at 18 d after first feeding. The inflexion points of snout length, eye diameter and post-eye head length occurred 23, 19 and 16 d after first feeding. For swimming organs, the dorsal fin, pelvic fins and anal fin exhibited positive allometric growth both before and after the inflexion point at 18, 19 and 17 d after first feeding; but the tail fin exhibited positive allometric growth before the inflexion point at 14 d after first feeding, and negative allometric growth after the inflexion point. S. curriculus larvae can possess various abilities soon after first feeding to survive at early stage due to the rapid development of swimming, feeling, feeding and other organs, which has important ecological significance to adapt to the complex external environment.

    Lu Shuyan;Chi Hai;Li Xueying;Yang Xianshi;

    This study was carried out to investigate the effects of secondary sterilization on the quality of roasted shrimp( Litopenaeus vannamei)with high nutrients. Roasted shrimps were vacuum packaged, with 100 g in each bag, and subjected to secondary sterilization for 30 min at 70, 80,90, 100, 110 and 120 ℃, or for 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 min at 90℃. Then, the color, textural properties, sensory quality and pH were measured, and whether they were commercially sterile was evaluated. The results showed that with the increase of sterilizing temperature, L*, a*and b*values all decreased. And with the increase of the duration of sterilization, L*slightly decreased, while a*and b*slightly increased. In addition, with the increase in sterilizing temperature, the hardness, gumminess, chewiness and springiness of roasted shrimps increased at first and decreased subsequently, while the adhesiveness kept increasing, and the cohesiveness and shear force slightly declined. With the increasing duration of sterilization,the hardness, adhesiveness and chewiness rose, the cohesiveness and shear force declined, the gumminess decreased at first and increased subsequently, while the springiness increased at first and decreased subsequently. The pH of roasted shrimps varied in a complex pattern when sterilizing temperature was increased, but increased with the increasing duration of sterilization. The results showed that the roasted shrimps secondarily sterilized at 90℃ for 30 min have the best sensory quality, and are commercially sterile.

    Li Yulong;Liu Xiuze;Yu Xuguang;Li Yiping;Fu Jie;Dong Jing;

    [Object] This study was conducted to explore the genetic diversity and structure of the wild Repomucenus curvicornis inhabiting Liaoning Coast, China. [Method] The mitochondrial COⅠ gene and control region(CR) were PCR amplified from the wild R. curvicornis populations from the Liaodong Bay(n=22) and the northern Yellow Sea(n=18), sequenced and analyzed for genetic diversity. [Result] The contents of A, T, C and G of 624 bp COⅠ gene were 24.09%, 31.04%, 25.28%, and 19.59%, and those of 460 bp CR fragment were 32.96%, 32.80%, 14.86% and 19.38%, respectively. The total number of variable sites, average number of nucleotide differences( k), haplotype diversity(H) and nucleotide diversity(π) based on COⅠ gene were 38, 4.67,(0.96±0.02) and(0.007 5±0.004 2), and those based on CR fragment were 26, 3.35,(0.97 ±0.02) and(0.007 3±0.004 3), respectively. Based on mitochondrial COⅠ gene and CR, the genetic diversity of Liaodong Bay population was lower than that of the northern Yellow Sea population. The AMOVA analysis based on CR fragments revealed almost significant genetic divergence between the Liaodong Bay and the northern Yellow Sea populations, while there was no significant genetic divergence based on COⅠ gene. The results showed that CR and COⅠ gene are effective molecular markers for detecting the genetic diversity of R. curvicornis population, while CR is more reliable than COⅠ gene in detecting the genetic structure. [Conclusion] CR is an appropriate marker for genetic analysis of marine fish population.

    Wang Yachao;Li Yuanfeng;Ao Xiang;He Jian;

    This study was conducted to determine the effects of yeast cell wall polysaccharides(YCWP) on reproductive performance, serum profiles and milk composition during late gestation and lactation. A total of 96 sows(Landrace × Yorkshire) were blocked on a basis of breed, parity(2-3)and their respective d 85 of gestation, and then randomly allotted to the following three dietary treatments: CON(basal diet, treatment 1), YCWP1(CON+0.2% YCWP, treatment 2) and YCWP2(CON+0.4% YCWP, treatment 3). The experiment lasted from d 85 of gestation to weaning(d 21 of lactation). Sows fed YCWP diets had lower backfat thickness reduction from postpartum to weaning( P<0.05). The supplementation of YCWP tended to increase litter weight at weaning(P=0.08) compared with CON. The non-lipid and total milk solids in colostrum was improved by YCWP2(P<0.05).No differences were observed in milk composition among dietary treatments( P>0.05). The supplementation of YCWP decreased(P<0.05) the levels of alanine amino transferase(ALT), aspartate amino transferase(AST), while it did not affect( P>0.05) alkaline phosphatase(ALP), total protein(TP),albumin(ALB), globulin(GLB), glucose(GLU), total cholesterol(TC), triglyceride(TG) or immunoglobulin G(IgG) in the sow serum. The serum IgG of piglets was increased by the YCWP. The levels of serum ALT and AST were reduced(P<0.05) for suckling piglets in YCWP treatments. Taken together, the results of current studies might indicate beneficial effects of YCWP supplementation to late gestation and lactation diets on the sow productivity by improving litter weight at weaning, reducing backfat loss, and increasing serum IgG concentrations of piglets.

[Method]Totally 200 1-day-old AA+ broilers were randomly divided into four groups, five repeats each group and 10 broilers each repeat. The broilers in control group, low dose group, middle dose group and high dose group were supplemented with the diet containing 0, 200, 350 and 500 mg/kg lentinan, respectively. The trial lasted 35 d. [Result] The average daily gains of broilers in low dose group, middle dose group and high dose group were significantly higher than that in control group at 14-21 days of age, 21-28 days of age and 28-35 days of age( P<0.05); the feed/gain ratios of broilers in low dose group, middle dose group and high dose group were significantly lower than that in control group at 21-28 days of age and 28-35 days of age(P<0.05); the immune organ indexes of broilers in low dose group, middle dose group and high dose group were significantly higher than that in control group at 35 days of age(P<0.05). [Conclusion] Adding lentinan in the diet could promote the production performance and immune organ index of broiler, and the addition amount of 350 mg/kg received the best effect.
