Carbon and nitrogen isotopic ratios in tissue of the bivalve corbicula (Corbicula japonica) and particulate organic matter (POM) were measured along a salinity gradient in the Kushida Estuary, Japan. The bivalve exhibited a gradual isotopic enrichment from the uppermost estuarine site (σ13C=−24.8‰ and σ15N=8.6‰) to the marine site (σ13C=−16.1‰ and σ15N=11.8‰). Using the concentration-weighted mixing model, the bivalves’ food source is estimated from the isotope values for the bivalves and POM… CONTINUE READING
