본 연구에서는 한국 남해안의 해상가두리에서 북방전복 Haliotis discus hannai 부착생물의 종류 와 밀도에 관한 자료의 축적과 부착생물 제거에 따른 영향을 평가하고자 하였다. 해상가두리에 서 북방전복의 부착생물은 굴, 태형동물, 따개비가 우점하였으며, 이들의 평균 부착생물 면적비 는 약 57.5%였다. 성장률과 간췌장의 건강도는 대조구에 비해 부착생물 제거구에서 좋은 결과 를 보였다. 따라서 전복의 부착생물 제거는 개체의 성장과 출하 시 상품성 향상을 위해 필요한 것으로 판단된다.
Cockles(Tegillarca granosa) species that found throughout the Indo-Pacific region and this study was conducted in Yeosu from November 2015 through April 2016. Antioxidant activities (lipid peroxidation, DPPH radical scavenging, superoxide anion radical scavenging, reducing power, and iron chelating assays) were studied at different stages during the processing. The results showed that all cockle samples were related to antioxidant activities, they also possessed effective abilities as free radical scavengers, reducing agents, and iron chelators in most cases. Seasonal variations in antioxidant activities were also observed, characterized by high activity values in April, spring season, a period where phytoplankton is their primary food source which propagates considerably. Moreover, the harvested cockles exhibited the higher radical scavenging activities than marketed cockles by compared in the similar concentration and the activities increased with increasing concentration. The results also showed the useful in the assessment of the cockle potential for the development of functional foods, food ingredients or pharmaceuticals. Moreover, keeping the freshness of the cockle during processing chain is pivotal for keeping its antioxidant activities.
