Some biochemical and physiological aspects of growth and gametogenesis in Crassostrea gigas and Ostrea edulis grown at sustained elevated temperatures.
Crassostrea gigas (Thunberg) and Ostrea edulis L. were grown at sustained temperatures of 12°, 15°, 18° and 21°C for a period of 19 weeks. Regular assays of weight specific ammonia excretion rateExpand
Lipid as an index of growth and viability in three species of bivalve larvae
Abstract The larvae of three species of bivalve molluscs, Crassostrea virginica (Gmelin), Ostrea edulis (L.) and Mercenaria mercenaria (L.) were cultured under a variety of temperature and foodExpand
Growth and survival of larvae of Mercenaria mercenaria (L.) and Crassostrea virginica (Gmelin) relative to broodstock conditioning and lipid content of eggs
Abstract Artificial conditioning of broodstocks of Mercenaria mercenaria L. and Crassostrea virginica (Gmelin) was initiated at various times throughout the year under both laboratory and commercialExpand
Population Studies of the Native Eastern Oyster, Crassostrea virginica, (Gmelin, 1791) in the James River, Virginia, USA
ABSTRACT We describe oyster population trends in the James River, VA from 1993 through 2006 using quantitative fishery independent survey data collected using a stratified random design. The 23 reefsExpand
Swimming mechanics and behavior of the shallow-water brief squid Lolliguncula brevis.
Although squid are among the most versatile swimmers and rely on a unique locomotor system, little is known about the swimming mechanics and behavior of most squid, especially those that swim at lowExpand
Effects of Hypoxia and Anoxia on Larval Settlement, Juvenile Growth, and Juvenile Survival of the Oyster Crassostrea virginica.
The effects of hypoxia (1.5 mg O2 1-1, 20% of air saturation) and anoxia (<0.07 mg O2 1-1, <1% of air saturation) on oyster (Crassostrea virginica) larval settlement, juvenile growth, and juvenileExpand
Benthic Filter Feeding: A Natural Eutrophication Control
The importance of the benthic filter feeding community as a natural control on eutrophication is considered. The important environmental factors favorable for such a control are relatively shallowExpand
Abstract Efforts to restore the native oyster in the Chesapeake Bay enjoy enormous public support and have consumed and continue to consume vast, some would argue unreasonable and unjustifiable,Expand
Oyster reefs as fish habitat: Opportunistic use of restored reefs by transient fishes
Under the Magnuson-Stevenson Fisheries Management Act of 1996, current fisheries management practice is focused on the conce_pt of Essential Fish Habitat (EFH). Application of the EFH concept toExpand
Redox reactions and weak buffering capacity lead to acidification in the Chesapeake Bay
The combined effects of anthropogenic and biological CO2 inputs may lead to more rapid acidification in coastal waters compared to the open ocean. It is less clear, however, how redox reactions wouldExpand
