Sedimentation rates in a suspended mussel farm (Great-Entry Lagoon, Canada): biodeposit production and dispersion
TLDR
Observations and sedimentation patterns along transects leading away from the mussel farm suggest that biodeposits from the farm are not dispersed broadly, supporting the hypothesis that mussel farming increases sedimentation rates.
From Sea to Sea: Canada's Three Oceans of Biodiversity
TLDR
Considering the difficulties encountered in compiling an overview of biogeographic data and the diversity of species or taxa in Canada's three oceans, this synthesis is intended to serve as a biodiversity baseline for a new program on marine biodiversity, the Canadian Healthy Ocean Network.
BIVALVE AQUACULTURE AND EXOTIC SPECIES: A REVIEW OF ECOLOGICAL CONSIDERATIONS AND MANAGEMENT ISSUES
TLDR
Because the risk of exotic species to ecosystems and the bivalve farming industry itself may be great, effort should be directed to better predict and halt introductions of potentially harmful species.
Influence of suspended and off-bottom mussel culture on the sea bottom and benthic habitats: a review.
TLDR
This work takes a holistic approach to review off-bottom and suspended mussel culture effects on the benthic environment andbenthic communities, including aggregation of epibenthic macrofauna in culture sites, alteration of plankton communities, and the enhancement of exotic and indigenous pest species owing to the addition of physical structure to the environment.
Influence of suspended scallop cages and mussel lines on pelagic and benthic biogeochemical fluxes in Havre-aux-Maisons Lagoon, Îles-de-la-Madeleine (Quebec, Canada)
TLDR
An in situ experiment was done in July 2004 to test and compare the influence of suspended bivalve cultures on biogeochemical fluxes in the water column and at the benthic interface in Havre-aux-Maisons Lagoon (Quebec, Canada).
Disentangling invasion processes in a dynamic shipping–boating network
TLDR
It is concluded that frequent primary introductions arise by ships and that secondary spread occurs gradually thereafter around individual ports, facilitated by recreational boating.
