Potential Association between Insulin-like Growth Factor-1
Receptor Activity and Surf Clam Spisula sachalinensis Larvae Survival

Youn Hee Choi and Taek Jeong Nam*

We investigated the relationship between viability and IGF-1 receptor (IGF-1R) activity in D-shaped and umbo larvae of the surf clam Spisula sachalinensis after treatment with vitrification solution (VS) or freezing. In a toxicity assay, VS1, containing 5 M dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), was very harmful to D-shaped and umbo larvae. However, VS2, containing 5 M ethylene glycol (EG), was not harmful to either larval stage. Although VS2 had a promising toxicity test outcome, none of the lar...
A New Abundance Estimate for the Finless Porpoise
Neophocaena asiaeorientalis on the West Coast of Korea:
An Indication of Population Decline

Kyum Joon Park*, Hawsun Sohn, Yong Rock An, Hyun Woo Kim and Doo Hae An

The west coast of Korea is the largest habitat for finless porpoises, with approximately 36,000 individuals reported in 2005 (Park et al., 2007). To date, there have been no subsequent finless porpoise population estimates. However, in recent bycatches, finless porpoises accounted for the highest proportion of all cetaceans and have been reported to be most frequently caught on the west coast of Korea (Kim et al., 2013). The present study, conducted in 2011, enumerated finless porpois...
Taxonomic review of the Korean lumpsucker “Do-chi” reported previously as Eumicrotremus orbis (Pisces: Cyclopteridae) based on morphological and molecular characters
Soo Jeong Lee1, Seong Yong Kim2, Dae Yeon Moon2 and Jin-Koo Kim1

The Korean lumpsucker, “Do-chi”, reported previously as Eumicrotremus orbis, was reinvestigated based on specimens collected from Korea, Japan, and the USA. Morphological and genetic analyses showed that “Do-chi” corresponds to Eumicrotremus taranetzi and clearly differs from E. orbis. Eumicrotremus taranetzi is readily distinguishable from E. orbis by its large, high spiny tubercles with weak, small or no prickles (small, low spiny tubercles with distinct prickles in E. orbis) and 3-...
