Introduction
I am interested in understanding how marine invertebrates respond to environmental changes. My PhD project aims to assess the acclimation capacity of physiological and life history traits to a range of environmental conditions on commercially important molluscs, characterize the importance of developmental and/or transgenerational plasticity for performance and stress tolerance, and evaluate the role of within- and across- generation acclimation in stock enhancement within an aquaculture context

Article
The reproductive cycle of Ruditapes decussatus was studied to assist with understanding the basic biology of this potential candidate for bivalve aquaculture in Egypt. Clams from three sites along the Egyptian coast (near Damietta, Ismailia and Alexandria) were examined over a year. Female:male sex ratio was 1:1.02. There were no significant differ...

Studies considering broodstock conditioning of Ruditapes decussatus mostly used flagellates and diatoms for feeding, mainly Isochrysis galbana and Chaetoceros calcitrans, respectively. The present study evaluated the effect of different microalgal diets on gonadic maturation of R. decussatus including three microalgae species (C. calcitrans, Tetras...

In Egypt due to the Nile delta and the presence of large shallow waters (0-20 m), with areas composed of sand and mud, there could be a great potential for the exploitation of a variety of clams. Given the big gap in knowledge on clams in Egypt the FAO EastMed project has started a study to support Egypt in exploring the possibility to determine if...

Heavy metal contamination was examined in the carpet shell clam, Tapes deccussatus from six sites in three main Egyptian natural fisheries (Ismailia, Alexandria and Damietta) over a six months period representing the winter and spring seasons (December 2010 – May 2011). Clams were collected monthly from six stations that were selected from location...
