Population dynamics of the queen scallop, Aequipecten opercularis, was investigated in the western English Channel off Roscoff. Annual formation of natural growth rings on the shell surface was validated by stable isotope (y 18 O and y 13 C) analysis. A von Bertalanffy growth function (Ht = 58.9 mm . (1� e � 0.604 .(t + 0.235) )) was fitted to size-at-age data of 249 individuals. Annual somatic and gonad production amounted to 19.74 kJ m � 2 and 0.98 kJ m � 2 y � 1 , respectively. Total… Expand
