Otros organismos de importancia en el mercado de los acuarios marinos son el caracol turbo (Turbo spp.), almeja gigante (Tridacna
spp.), camaron bandeado (Tectus spp.) y caracol bola (Trochus spp.) (Wood, 2001; Wabnitz et al., 2003; Balaji et al., 2007, 2009).
These are debris from making clam-shell Tridacna
1975) examined the giant clam, Tridacna
maxima, which is common on coral reefs throughout the Pacific and Indian Oceans (Yonge 1975).
The police said 127 pieces of fossilized Manlot or Tridacna
gigas, the largest shell in the Philippines, were confiscated from the three men reported to be hoarding the clams.
ABSTRACT Monitoring gonad maturation for protandrous and functional hermaphrodite species such as the giant clam Tridacna
maxima is difficult due to the juxtaposition and relative proportion of male and female tissues in the gonad [gonadal sex ratio (GSR)].

The bureau started planning the entrapment operation in December last year after receiving information that certain individuals from Tarlac were looking for buyers of pearls and giant clams locally known as Taklobo (scientific name: Tridacna
To determine the characteristics of Symbiodinium that improve the symbiosis rate of giant clams (Tridacna
crocea and Tridacna
maxima), we conducted experiments simulating a typical Japanese seed production method that rears giant clams in unsterilized seawater with no food or antibiotics.
They took detail measurements of light inside the clams, Tridacna
The primary burial(s) are apparently Neolithic, with ground stone and Tridacna
Benzie and Williams (1992) have also reported little differentiation among GBR populations of the giant clam Tridacna
The little strip of white sand hugged by a mangrove forest is surrounded by 235 ha of coral reef that is home to giant clam (Tridacna
gigas) and helmet shell (Cassinae), locally known as 'budyong,' a threatened species of shellfish seldom seen alive in Philippine waters.
