Effect of salinity on respiration and excretion of Babylonia areolata


Effect of salinity on respiration and excretion of Babylonia areolata



Journal of Tropical Oceanography 24(4): 35-40



ISSN/ISBN: 1009-5470

Metabolism of Babylonia areolata was determined in laboratory under controlled conditions of salinity (13, 18, 23, 28, and 33 respectively) and temperature (27-28[degree]C). Three groups were set up to study oxygen consumption and ammonia excretory rates of Babylonia areolata , with shell height of 6. 86[plus or minus]0.24, 4. 75[plus or minus]0. 37 and 3. 15[plus or minus]0. 12 cm, and soft tissue dry weight of 11.064[plus or minus]0. 361, 4. 245[plus or minus]0. 690 and 2. 015[plus or minus]0. 122 g, respectively. The results were as follows. (1) Individual size and salinity had significant effects on oxygen consumption rate (0) (p<0. 01). The rate increased with salinity ranging from 13 to 28, but reduced at salinity of 33. The relationship between 0 and soft tissue dry weight (W) can be represented by the allometric equation O= aWb , where a ranges from 1. 365 5 to 3. 072 2, with mean of 2. 236 8, and b ranges from -0. 195 2 to -0. 093 6, with mean of -0. 130 6. (2) Individual size, salinity and interaction of the both all had significant effects on ammonia excretion rate (N) (p<0. 01). The rate increased with salinity ranging from 13 to 28, but reduced at 33. The relationship between N and W can also be represented as the allometric equation N=cWd, where c ranges from 261. 769 4 to 360. 427 9, with mean of 320. 643 4, and d ranges from -0. 325 3 to -0. 189 0, with mean of -0. 248 5. (3) The relationships of 0 and N with W and S can be described by the following linear regression equations: O=1. 208 -0. 039W + 0. 039S (R = 0. 578, F = 10. 517, significance probability = 0. 000) , N = -210. 442-9. 255W+2. 965S (R=0. 813, F=40. 834, significance probability=0. 000).
