  14. Shelf life of dried products from small indigenous fish species under various packing and storage conditions

    Nurullah, M.; Kamal, M.; Islam, M.N..; Ahasan, C.T.; Thilsted, S.H.
    The overall quality of five SIS products was found in good condition up to 2 months storage on the basis of organoleptic, biochemical and bacteriological characteristics and all the products was excellent in sealed packed condition up to 45 days of storage. However, quality of the products stored in open air atmospheric temperature was found excellent for first 15 days. In an average the initial moisture content was in the range of 13.5 to 15.0% with highest moisture content in puti and lowest in chapila. At the end of the 60 days the moisture content reached to the range of 18.5 to 19.0%...

  15. Un tal Raúl Adolfo…

    López, Hugo Luis; Ponte Gómez, Justina
    Esta serie tiene como objetivo rescatar parte de las reflexiones, ideas, pensamientos, comentarios… de aquellos que transitaron el complejo y fascinante camino de las Ciencias Naturales. Por ello, a través de estas líneas, hago una fuerte convocatoria para que colegas de diferentes disciplinas se acerquen para colaborar con esta idea, ya sea desde este espacio o de cualquier otro. Se preguntaran ¿para qué? y ¿por qué? Yo creo que es una manera de reflejar diferentes contextos históricos y acercar nuestros referentes a las jóvenes generaciones. Esto último me parece muy importante, ya que existe una tendencia generalizada de obviar parte del...

  16. The Sundarbans fishers coping in an overly stressed mangrove estuary

    Chacraverti, Santanu
    The fishing community of the Sundarbans are the human group most at home in the mud-slush-water-forest environment of this famous mangrove estuary. Their skills, knowledge, and technique have developed in response to a challenging environment. Yet, of the countless studies on the various aspects of this eco-region, there are exceedingly few that have studied the Sundarbans fisher in his/her ecological, historical and demographic context—as a key stakeholder in an environment under considerable stress. The present study seeks to reduce this lacuna a little. Its object is not merely to examine and analyse, but also to identify means, both tradition-based and...

    Carreto Iraurgui, J.I.
    Las mareas rojas, catástrofes naturales, inevitables y casi siempre impredecibles, se han incrementado notablemente en los últimos años. Con el fin de atenuar sus efectos se implementan hoy diversos sistemas de predicción y control, tarea que aún presenta muchas dificultades. Este artículo de divulgación científica incluye información sobre el esquema simplificado de secuencia principal de la sucesión fitoplanctónica, sobre mareas rojas en Península de Valdés (Argentina) y otros temas, así como otras lecturas sugeridas.

  19. Efecto de la radiación ultravioleta sobre los ecosistemas acuáticos

    Zagarese, H.E.; Cravero, W.R.; Villafane, V.; Helbling, W.
    Hasta hace poco tiempo se consideraba que la radiación ultravioleta carecía de importancia como factor ambiental en los ecosistemas acuáticos, ya que se suponía que se absorbía totalmente en los primeros centímetros de la columna de agua. Gracias al desarrollo de mejores instrumentos de medición, hoy se sabe que la penetración de la radiación ultravioleta en el agua es mucho mayor que la estimada anteriormente, y que sus efectos biológicos resultan observables hasta decenas de metros de profundidad. Este artículo de divulgación científica incluye, además de lecturas sugeridas, información del ozono estratosférico y troposférico, y sobre factores que afectan la...
