Hi! I'm Ly-ann and I am doing my masteral thesis on the reproduction of 
giant clams at the Marine Science Inst. of the University of the Phils. 
This study is aimed to check on the effects of dissolved inorganic nitrogen 
and live algae on the reproductive development of giant clams.  

I would just like to ask for some references that deal with the the use of 
protein, carbohydrates and lipid concentrations in relation to the stage of 
gonad development, in particular on bivalves. 

I used Tetraselmis sp. as the live algal supplement, so, if there are 
papers around on its nutritional value, I would appreciate a copy.
