1. Introduction. The blacklip pearl oyster, Pinctada margaritifera (L.), supports multimillion-dollar cultured-pearl industries in the South Pacific (Fassler, ).The cultured ‘black’ pearl industry in French Polynesia, for example, had an estimated value of US$ million in (Remoissenet. ) and a similar, but smaller, industry valued at approximately US$ million exists Cited by: The blacklip pearl oyster, Pinctada margaritifera.L., supports multimillion-dollar cultured-pearl industries in the South Pacific Fassler, The cultured ‘black’ pearl. industry in French Polynesia, for example, had an estimated value of US$ million in Remoissenet. and a similar, but smaller, industry valued at. Growth of blacklip pearl oyster (Pinctada margaritifera) juveniles using different nursery culture techniques. This paper reports on an experiment to determine growth and survival of blacklip pearl oyster, Pinctada margaritifera (L.), larvae fed a mixture of Isochrysis aff. galbana clone T-ISO and Pavlova salina at six different densities (1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 30 × cells ml Larval growth and survival were assessed every four days over a 20–day period.
Black-lip pearl oysters (Pinctada margaritifera) are widespread throughout the Indo-Pacific region, where they have traditionally been used for food, ornaments, jewellery, tools and fish hooks. However, the major benefits of black-lip pearl oysters today come from their use in the culture of "black" pearls. Much of the prior research in this field has focussed on the black-lip pearl oyster Pinctada margaritifera, where substitution of 25–50% of a live micro-algae diet with dried micro-algae (Tetraselmis sp.) was reported without significantly reducing survival or growth of D-stage larvae (Southgate et al., , Doroudi et al., ). for over months for growth of a half-pearl or years for a round pearl in a pearl oyster such as Pinctada margaritifera (Haws, ). Just as in any other forms of aquaculture, a reliable and consistent supply of seed (juveniles) is an integral requirement for the success of a pearl industry. Typically, pearl oysters juveniles.

Between and , several sampling designs were used to measure the growth of the black-lip pearl oyster, Pinctada margaritifera var. cumingi at different sites in French Polynesia. Using a common statistical method, growth data were analysed for . Doroudi MS, Southgate PC () The influence of algal ration and larval density on growth and survival of blacklip pearl oyster Pinctada margaritifera (L.) larvae. Aquac Res – Aquac Res – This study was based on blacklip pearl oyster (Pinctada margaritifera) juveniles, that were hatchery-reared and 8 months old. They were held for 5 months in suspended culture using five culture techniques: in pocket juvenile panel nets (PN24); enclosed within 5-mm plastic mesh 'inserts' placed in the pockets of eight-pocket adult panel nets (PN8); in 5-mm plastic mesh inserts without being. Pearl oysters are not closely related to either the edible oysters of family Ostreidae or the freshwater pearl mussels of the families Unionidae and Margaritiferidae.. Pinctada margaritifera and P. maxima are used for culturing South Sea and Tahitian pearls. They are cultured widely primarily in the central and eastern Indo-Pacific.A pearl oyster can be seen on the reverse side of the 1,
