Donax striatus Linne 1767 is one of the two beach clam species that inhabits in the Caribbean. Few investigations have focused on describing aspects related with the population structure of this species. A population of D. striatus was surveyed from February 2008 to January 2009 in Las Balsas beach, Gibara, Cuba. The population showed seasonal fluctuations of the density presenting the higher values on May and October 2008 and January 2009. There were peaks of recruitment: April-May, August…

Abundancia y crecimiento relativo de Donax denticulatus (Bivalvia: Donacidae) en playa Levisa, costa sur oriental de Cuba

TLDR
Length-weight relationship showed a significant correlation between these variables; however, the allometric coefficient value is different considering different life stages, which means this population shows potential to be exploited, but some management measures must be taken into account to ensure sustainability.

Growth and production of Donax striatus (Bivalvia: Donacidae) from Las Balsas beach, Gibara, Cuba.

TLDR
The rapid growth and high turnover rate of D. striatus suggest a rapid recovery of the population and the idea that this beach clam is an important resource at Las Balsas beach must continue with caution and only at the level of a recreational fishery.

Dinámica poblacional de Donax denticulatus (Bivalvia: Donacidae) en playa Carenero, costa sur oriental de Cuba

TLDR
High densities, fast growth and high somatic production indicate that this population of Donax denticulatus can be exploited for fishing purposes for which some management measures are proposed.

MORFOMETRÍA DE LA CONCHA DE DONAX DENTICULATUS Y DONAX STRIATUS DE DOS PLAYAS DE CUBA ORIENTAL

TLDR
The objective of this paper is to quantify the relationships between morphometric variables and verify whether the Shell Shape Stabilization Indicator (IEF, Spanish acronym) is useful to determine the minimum size of catch for the two species.

Biology and Population Dynamics of Donax trunculus L. (Bivalvia: Donacidae) in the South Adriatic Coast (Italy)

TLDR
Biology and population dynamics of the suspension-feeding wedge clam Donax trunculus were studied for 13 months along the Italian Southern Adriatic coast near the Lagoon of Lesina and showed an intraspecific segregation between young and adult wedge clams.

TLDR
Histological examination of clams showed in the most of the adult population sampled that the spawning is practically continuous, without any period of sexual rest, in the two main periods of gametogenesis.

TLDR
The wedge-clam, Donax faba Gmelin is one of the few clams collected for culi­ nary purposes by the coastal population, especially the fishermen commimity, around Mandapam on the south-east coast of India and investigations on the biology of this clam were undertaken at the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute.
