Survival and growth of juvenile fluted giant clams, Tridacna squamosa, in large-scale grow-out trials in the Solomon Islands



Survival and growth of juvenile fluted giant clams, Tridacna squamosa, in large-scale grow-out trials in the Solomon Islands



Aquaculture 148(2/3): 85-104



Two large-scale experiments were conducted with juvenile T. squamosa at coastal village sites in the Solomon Islands to provide robust estimates of survival and growth during grow-out. Juveniles were reared to approximately 24 mm shell length (10-11 months) in land-based tanks and then transferred to subtidal sites near villages for grow-out for 8 months. During the first experiment, which started in October 1993, survival varied greatly among sites, ranging from 7 to 83%.
