MemoProve Counters the Degenerative Processes that Leads to ARMP
The neuropeptides in MemoProve are similar to those produced by the human body,(1) and can counter the degenerative processes that lead to ARMP by supporting the viability of neurons and stimulating the formation of synaptic connections.
In the study, MemoProve appeared to counter the degenerative processes that lead to ARMP, improving short-term memory by an average of 15 percent.
The ARMP utilizes densities determined from transect surveys to manage red abalone populations in northern California.
The ARMP uses density levels (Table 1, ARMP Table 7-2) to regulate the TAC for the fishery based on results from dive surveys at eight index sites (Fig.
These four sites represent half of the data required by the ARMP for evaluating the fishery using the TAC adjustment table (Table 1).
Van Damme is a possible exception; however, densities of sublegal sized abalone were not as high as the standard set in the ARMP (Table 3).
Red abalone densities in four recent surveys show abalone densities at levels, which would maintain the current TAC according to the ARMP TAC adjustment table (Table 1).
Recruitment is a secondary criterion in the ARMP and is only considered when the TAC might be increased (Table 1).
The ARMP monitoring schedule of triennial scuba surveys for eight sites should adequately detect red abalone population declines before adverse fishery conditions occur.
A more randomized sampling scheme would also be a first step towards implementing the Long-term management plan in the ARMP.
