Bahía San Quintín is a coastal lagoon with large Ulva biomass and upwelling influence. Previous observations suggest that Ulva has increased recently as a result of oyster cultivation. To evaluate the possible role of Ulva as a temporary nutrient sink, biomass and tissue C, N, and P were determined seasonally. Maximum biomass was present during spring and early summer (1,413–1,160 t (dry)) covering about 400 ha. However, the biomass decreased to 35 t (dry) by winter. The mean annual percentage… CONTINUE READING
