Growth patterns of gastropod Buccinum osagawai in the Northern Sea of Okhotsk The dependence of shell height and body weight on age was studied in Buccinum osagawai. The following conclusions were made based on the analysis: growth of B. osagawai occurs during the entire lifecycle. The maturity age is 3 years. The body weight increment reaches the highest values at 9 years of age. During the maturation period the estimated shell height amounts to nearly 50% of the largest size (114 mm), and body weight equals nearly 12% of the heaviest representative (168 g) in the sample. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Marine Biology Springer Journals

Abstract

The dependence of shell height and body weight on age was studied in Buccinum osagawai. The following conclusions were made based on the analysis: growth of B. osagawai occurs during the entire lifecycle. The maturity age is 3 years. The body weight increment reaches the highest values at 9 years of age. During the maturation period the estimated shell height amounts to nearly 50% of the largest size (114 mm), and body weight equals nearly 12% of the heaviest representative (168 g) in the sample.
