A Catalogue of the Living Marine Bivalve Molluscs of China
This is a comprehensive catalogue of the living marine Bivalvia of China. Over 1,140 species are arranged in systematic order reflecting the phylogenetic relationships of the supraspecific taxa,Expand
Potential fishery for the Gooseneck barnacle Pollicipes polymerus (Sowerby, 1833) in British Columbia
It appears that resettlement of gooseneck barnacle may depend on an initial settlement of the small sessile barnacle Semibalanus glandula and may be a slow process of ecological succession. Expand

Pacific oysters are not able to sort purple bacteria from unicellular algae, but rapid digestion results in bacteria-free alimentary canal and faeces. Expand
Annual Biodeposition and Gross Energy Budget of Mature Pacific Oysters, Crassostrea gigas
The mean annual volume of seawater pumped by Pacific oysters in Departure Bay, British Columbia is 1488 liters/g per year, and data applied to a mean biomass of 190 g/m2 for a mature oyster reef show that 22,052 kcal are theoretically available for ingestion, but only 11% are retained, mostly to be biodeposited.
