acute fish liver intoxication: report of three cases.the livers of some larger fish such as shark, tuna and seabass have been reported to be responsible for a peculiar poisoning causing headaches and desquamation. this type of poisoning can also be induced by ingestion of the livers of the sea whale, the polar bear and the seal. since these animals contain an extremely large quantity of vitamin a in their livers and the symptoms of poisoning in the patients resembled those of patients with acute hypervitaminosis a, the poisoning was believed to ha ...199910584420
habitat complexity modifies the impact of piscivores on a coral reef fish population.patterns in juvenile mortality rates can have a profound affect on the distribution and abundance of adult individuals, and may be the result of a number of interacting factors. field observations at lizard island (great barrier reef, australia) showed that for a coral reef damselfish, pomacentrus moluccensis, juvenile mortality (over 1 year) varied between 20 and almost 100% among sites. correlative data showed that juvenile mortality increased as a function of initial densities (recruitment), ...199828307557
complete mitochondrial genome of the chocolate hind cephalopholis boenak (pisces: perciformes).the complete mitochondrial (mt) genome of the chocolate hind cephalopholis boenak was obtained in this study, which is the first complete mitogenome in the genus cephalopholis. the circular mtdna molecule was 16 771 bp in size and the overall nucleotide composition of the h-strand was 29.58% a, 27.36% t, 15.84% g, and 27.22% c, with an a + t bias. the complete mitogenome encoded 13 protein-coding genes, 2 rrnas, 22 trnas and 1 control region (d-loop), with the gene arrangement and translation di ...201423631361
seven new species of ceratomyxa thélohan, 1892 (myxozoa) from the gall-bladders of serranid fishes from the great barrier reef, australia.ceratomyxa spp. from the gall-bladder of five members of the family serranidae were examined for their taxonomic identity. this paper describes seven new ceratomyxid species, i.e. c. brayi n. sp. and c. whippsi n. sp from cephalopholis boenak (bloch); c. cutmorei n. sp. from epinephelus fasciatus (forsskål); c. gleesoni n. sp. from plectropomus leopardus (lacépède); c. hooperi n. sp. and c. nolani n. sp. from e. quoyanus (valenciennes); and c. yokoyamai n. sp. from e. maculatus (bloch). each spe ...200919337855
two new hemiurine species (digenea: hemiuridae) from spratelloides robustus ogilby (clupeiformes: clupeidae) off south-western australia and records of parahemiurus merus (linton, 1910) from australian and new caledonian waters.two new species of hemiurine hemiurid are described from spratelloides robustus off woodman point in southern western australia. hemiurus lignator n. sp. differs from its congeners by a combination of similar-sized suckers, long sinus-sac, tandem testes, relatively elongate shape and unthickened seminal vesicle wall. parahemiurus xylokopos n. sp. differs from its congeners in a combination of its squat form, its distinctly lobed vitellarium and the proximity of the gonads to the ventral sucker. ...200515864457
