The effects of temperature. food concentration, salinity and turbidity on the growth and development of Crassosrrea 1,.•irginica larvae were inve tigated with a time-dependent mathematical model. Formulation used in the model for larval growth are based upon laboratory data. Simulation were done using temperature conditions characteri tic of Laguna Madre , Galveston Bay. Apalachicola Bay, North Inlet and Che ·apeake Bay . These simulations show that the duration of the planktonic larval phase… CONTINUE READING
