Atlantic surfclams (Spisula solidissima), among the largest extant non-symbiotic clam species in the world, live in dense aggregations along the Middle Atlantic Bight (MAB) continental shelf. The food resources that support these populations are poorly understood. An individual-based model that simulates the growth of post-settlement surfclams was used to investigate the quantity of food needed to maintain existing surfclam populations along the MAB continental shelf. Food inputs to the model… CONTINUE READING
