Abstract

Different cohorts of Corbicula japonica benthic individuals (from new settlers just after larval settlement up to recruits with 12-mm shell length and more) in the Kiso estuaries, Japan were separated based on temporal changes in shell length histograms. The post-settlement growth and mortality were examined for cohorts that were successful in fishery… (More)
