Like all other abalone, Haliotis asinina is a member of a large molluscan class, the Gastropoda which are characterized by having single-piece. The abalone, Haliotis asinina, is a large, highly active tropical abalone that feeds at night on shallow coral reefs where oxygen levels of the water may be low. Feeding, growth and survival of hatchery-bred juvenile abalone, Haliotis asinina ( mean initial shell lengths: 32 mm) stocked at 25, 50 and m-2 of shelter.

The color may variate between green olive or brown externally, with distinct roughly triangular patches. This chapter discusses how to evaluate feedstuffs and feeds. Its outer surface is smooth and almost halioyis covered by the mantle in life, making encrustations of other animals such as barnacles quite uncommon in comparison to other abalones.


Sexual maturity is reached within 12 months Lucas et al Seaweeds, corals, bivalves and gastropods. Sexual maturation during culture did not hamper growth of abalone. Animals were fed the seaweed, Gracilariopsis bailinaeto excess given at weekly intervals.

As is the case in many other abalones, the interior surface of the shell is strongly iridescentwith shades of pink and green. Generate a print friendly version containing only the sections hqliotis need.

Haliotis asinina (donkey ear abalone)

Abstract Feeding, growth and survival of hatchery-bred juvenile abalone, Haliotis asinina mean initial shell lengths: However, body size range: Aquaculture farms are growing abalone commercially Miller ET at They have a pair of bipectinate ctenidia which are well-developed epipodial tentacles and a rhipidoglossate radula Lindberg Several major transitions in shell pattern and morphology can be observed during the life of Haliotis asinina.

The shell has a curved row of respiratory pores, rounded haliotiz perforations overlying the respiratory cavity. These large scale morphological changes are accompanied by mineralogical and crystallographic changes. Adult shell of Haliotis asinina.

They graze amongst turf algae and inhabit the undersides of boulders and coral bommies. View of shells showing internal and external details. Copyright Duc Minh Luu. Abalone shells are rounded or oval and generally have a dome towards one end although, in the case of H.


Furthermore, it is at this stage of development that the first recognisable tablets of nacre can be detected. It has the fastest recorded wild growth rate of all the abalones and can grow to a maximum shell length of mm but this can vary with geographical location Day and FlemingLucas et al The living marine resources of the Western Central Pacific Volume 1. The early postlarval shell is more robust and opaque than the larval shell but has no pigmentation.

They belong to the family Haliotidae and the genus Haliotiswhich means sea ear, this referring to the flattened, and sometimes ear-shaped, form of the shell. The adductor muscle is a delicacy in parts of the world which has led to it being extensively harvested from the wild. Views Read Edit View history.
