Tips on Tuna Handling

The value of the bluefin tuna fishery is driven largely by the high demand for top-quality, fresh tuna for the Japanese market. Fresh bluefin tuna is most valuable when the fat content is high (generally between the end of July and October) and when the fish has been handled properly to maintain its freshness and appearance. Tuna buyers are easily able to recognize when fish have been improperly handled. Step-by-step illustrations offer tips for doing it right; laminated for use on board vessels.

Some Determinants of Maturation in Brook Trout, Salvelinus fontinalis
McCormick, S.D. and R.J. Naiman
Aquaculture, Vol. 43, pp. 269-278, 1984 WHOI-R-84-019
Size, age, growth rate and photoperiod (the controlling effects of the length of the day on phenomena such as reproductive cycles in mammals, migration patterns in birds, flowering in plants) were examined for their effects on the timing of maturation and the proportion of mature male and female brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis). Photoperiod completely entrained the gonadosomatic index and the timing of functional maturation (spermiation and ovulation). High feed and delayed photoperiod conditions resulted in a greater proportion of mature individuals of each sex in their first year, with percent maturation higher for males. The results indicated that 1) given a positive growth rate, age and growth rate are less important than size in determining maturation of brook trout, and 2) the maturation response to size is sexually divergent. A conceptual model depicting the effects of environmental factors on size and the initiation of maturation is presented in this paper.

The Reproductive Cycle of the Bay Scallop, Argopecten irradians irradians (Lamarck), in a Small Coastal Embayment on Cape Cod, Massachusetts
Taylor, R.E. and J.M. Capuzzo
Estuaries, Vol. 6, No. 4, pp. 431-435, 1983 WHOI-R-83-020
The spawning activity of the bay scallop Argopecten irradians irradians was monitored during the summer (May through September), 1979, in Waquoit Bay, a small embayment on the south shore of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The investigators were interested in learning more about the reproductive cycle and early growth and development of bay scallop populations. This paper reports the gonadal development and spawning activity of adult bay scallop populations within this small embayment. Results indicated that spawning activity of the bay scallop populations occurred predominantly before the summer maximum temperature was recorded. After the summer maximum was reached, most of the gonads appeared spent, thus emphasizing the importance of temperature in stimulating spawning as reported in the literature.
