Like all other abalone, Haliotis asinina is a member of a large molluscan class, the Gastropoda which are characterized by having single-piece. The abalone, Haliotis asinina, is a large, highly active tropical abalone that feeds at night on shallow coral reefs where oxygen levels of the water may be low. Feeding, growth and survival of hatchery-bred juvenile abalone, Haliotis asinina ( mean initial shell lengths: 32 mm) stocked at 25, 50 and m-2 of shelter.

Biomineralisation begins shortly after hatching, with the fabrication of the larval shell protoconch over about a hour period. Title Larvae Caption Veliger larvae of Haliotis asinina. This chapter presents methods and equipment that are useful not only for feed millers, but also for extension workers and fish farmers. The shell gland then evaginates to form the shell field which expands through mitotic divisions to direct the precipitation of calcium carbonate CaCO 3 via the secretion of organic molecules.

Haliotis asininacommon name the ass’s-ear abaloneis a fairly large species of sea snaila tropical gastropod mollusk in the family Haliotidaethe abalonesalso known as ormers or paua. The adductor muscle is a delicacy in parts of the world which has led to it being extensively harvested from the wild.


They belong to the family Haliotidae and the genus Haliotiswhich means sea ear, this referring to the flattened, and sometimes ear-shaped, form of the shell.

The species has a pelagobenthic life cycle that includes a minimal period of three to four days in the plankton. Title Culture tank Caption Culture of Haliotis asinina in a cement tank.

BMC Evolutionary Biology 7: They have a pair of bipectinate ctenidia which are well-developed epipodial tentacles and a rhipidoglossate radula Lindberg After d, avereage daily growth rate mean: The color may variate between green haliotia or brown externally, with distinct roughly triangular patches. Haliotis asinina Linnaeus Trochophore of Haliotis asinina 11 hours post-fertilisation, with a calcified protoconch pc.

Overall, ontogenetic changes in Haliotis asinina shell pigmentation and structure match changes in the habitats occupied during development. Both the common name and the scientific name are based on the shape of the shell, which is long, narrow and curved, resembling the shape of a donkey’s ear.

Title Juveniles Caption Juveniles of Haliotis asinina. Views Read Edit View history.

The early postlarval shell is more robust and opaque than the larval shell but has no pigmentation. This shell pattern may enhance the juvenile’s ability to camouflage on the heterogeneous background of the CCA they inhabit at this stage of development.


The juvenile Haliotis asinina teloconch rapidly develops a uniform maroon colouration several weeks after metamorphosis, similar to the crustose coralline algae CCA that the larva has settled upon. Drawing shows that mantle in gray covers the majority of the dorsal surface of the animal.

It is commonly found in the intertidal zone and upper subtidal zone throughout its range Tahil and Juinio-Menez Haliotis asinina Temporal range: They have a soft body surrounded by a mantle, an anterior hea A muscular foot protrudes from under the shell and this generally has strong suction power, permitting the abalone to clamp tightly to rocky substrata. The postlarval asinin teleoconch is laid down rapidly following metamorphosis with marked variation in the rate of its production between individuals.

This pattern is gradually lost with growth, as the shell becomes thicker and more elongate.

Haliotis asinina

The flesh of Haliotis asinina is edible, jaliotis it is usually collected for food and also for its shell in South East Asian countries. In this way the larval shell protoconch is formed.

The material in this section is presented in sequence beginning with the processing of basic ingredients to remove antinutritional factors, followed by steps in feed preparation, from the easiest to the more complex processes, and storage. Some features of haaliotis site may not work without it. The living marine resources of the Western Central Pacific Volume 1.

Sexual maturation during culture did not hamper growth of abalone.
