Article
Full-text available
Caulerpa lentillifera (phylum: Chlorophyta) is a seaweed that is widely consumed by local communities across Asia. The effects of different oven-dried temperatures on the drying kinetics and phytochemical constituents of C. lentillifera were studied. This kinetic study used three different thin-layer models, i.e., Lewis, Henderson and Pabis, and Lo...

Crassostrea (Magallana) saidii has been commercially ranched in Malaysia and consumed for more than 160 years, but it was only recently identified as a new species to science. This study was conducted to evaluate the reproductive phenology of C. (M.) saidii. Samples of 30 individual oysters were taken monthly for 15 months from the sole population...
Article
Transitions to terrestriality have been associated with major animal radiations including land snails and slugs in Stylommatophora (>20 000 described species), the most successful lineage of ‘pulmonates’ (a non-monophyletic assemblage of air-breathing gastropods). However, phylogenomic studies have failed to robustly resolve relationships among tra...

The diversity of native oysters in many regions is overshadowed by the global dominance of a few economically important species. Here we describe the Muar Oyster, Crassostrea (Magallana) saidii sp. nov., first reported as an established local fishery renowned for exceptional and distinctive flavour over 160 years ago by British colonial officials i...

Commercially valuable gastropod Cerithidea obtusa is abundant in the Malaysian mangrove ecosystems, yet little research has been done on this species. The present study was conducted to examine the diet of C. obtusa from two sites, Kuala Selangor Nature Park, Selangor and Tanjung Piai National Park, Johor, Malacca Strait. A total of 90 individuals...

Aim: Methodology: Results: Interpretation: Key words: Despite their well-known strategy of brooding in male pouches, survival of early juveniles of seahorses still represents a significant bottleneck to its population survival. This study aimed to address the feeding and digestive efficiency of early Hippocampus kuda in order to improve their survi...
Article
Full-text available
Bivalved gastropods (family Juliidae) are a pan-tropical group of small, green, extraordinary gastropods with a symmetrical clam-like shell. Only a single species of Juliidae has been reported in Malaysia, Berthelinia singaporensis Jensen, 2015, feeding on multiple species of siphonous green algae in the genus Caulerpa. In spite of a baseline expec...
Article
“Cryptic” can refer to species that match their background through camouflage or disruptive colouration, or in taxonomy to externally similar but unrecognized congeners. In adaptive resemblance, organisms resemble parts of a larger host animal or plant on which the mimic is highly cryptic. Mimetic lineages that radiate onto superficially similar ho...

Low survival remains a significant obstacle during the early culture of Hippocampus kuda. To potentially develop a better feeding regime to newborn H. kuda without relying on wild zooplanktons, two separate feeding trials were performed using cultured live food items. Newborn derived from the wild broodstock were reared in the captive conditions us...

Three drifting juvenile seahorses (100.3 mm, 89.5 mm, and 55.8 mm in height) were captured during 2 research surveys between shipping routes at Malacca Strait. All seahorse specimens were identified using morphometric data as Hippocampus trimaculatus Leach, 1814. This is the first direct observation of drifting H. trimaculatus seahorse near to the...

The study was carried out to investigate the diversity of epifaunal bivalves in Merambong seagrass bed, Pulai River Estuary. The sample collection field trips started from May 2008 to July 2009, 18 transects (from six stations) have been laid perpendicularly along the elongated shoal during lowest low spring tide. A total of 15 species from 10 biva...

A study was carried out to apply the induced spawning methods for a potential mariculture mussel species Modiolus philippinarum. Matured broodstock were collected from Merambong Shoal seagrass bed, Pulai River Estuary Johor and induced to spawn with two induced spawning methods. Mussels were successfully spawned after six hours of normal ambient ex...
Article
Full-text available
Though marine science has received much attention in Malaysia in the recent years, marine mollusc studies are still overseen by many researchers. The lacks of basic information such as diversity data and species check list make it impossible to assess the rate of population lost among marine molluscs. To date, no published information on the actual...
