Species profiles : life histories and environmental requirements of coastal fishes and invertebrates (North Atlantic) : alewife/blueback herring by Jon G Stanley( Book )

41 editions published between 1983 and 1986 in English and held by 1,178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Species profiles are literature summaries on the taxonomy, morphology, range, life history and environmental requirements of coastal aquatic species. They are intended to assist in environmental impact assessment. Atlantic salmon are a highly prized sport fish and their flesh is gourmet table fare. Once abundant in New England's coastal rivers, they are only now being restored to portions of their original habitat. Populatons declined following development of industries along rivers and commercial fisheries in estuaries. Atlantic salmon are anadromous. Spawning, embryo development and growth of young fish occur in freshwater streams and rivers. Juvenile survival is highest in clear, cool (<27 C), well oxygenated (dissolved oxygen> 5 mg/l) streams. Flowing smoltification, a physiological change enabling entry into salt water, fish migrate downstream and then to oceanic feeding grounds near Greenland, where they grow rapidly. Sexually mature fish return to their natural rivers to spawn. Migration into estuaries and lower reaches of river begins 7 months before the October-November spawning period. Migrating adults require dissolved oxygen concentrations greater than 6 mg/l for successful upstream movement. Because juveniles migrate through the coastal zone in spring and adults in summer and fall the species is especially vulnerable to the consequences of coastal development
Species profiles : life histories and environmental requirements of coastal fishes and invertebrates (Pacific Northwest) : Pacific oyster by Gilbert B Pauley( Book )

35 editions published between 1983 and 1986 in English and held by 1,090 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Species profiles are literature summaries of the taxonomy, morphology, distribution, life history, ecological role, fishery (when appropriate), and environmental requirements of coastal aquatic species. They are prepared to assist coastal managers, engineers, and biologists in the gathering of information pertinent to costal development activities. The Pacific razor clam has a long history of human consumption on the west coast. Turn-of-the-century commercial canning operations have given way to today's extensive recreational fishery. Razor clams spawn in late spring and early summer in the Pacific Northwest and recruit to flat, sandy beaches in late summer. Greatest densities of large clams occur in the lower intertidal zone. Razor clams grow and mature faster but attain a lower maximum size and age in the southern part of their range. They are noted for their unusual ability to dig very rapidly through the subsurface sand. Silt-generating activities should be avoided in the vicinity of razor clam beaches, as juveniles are susceptible to suffocation.
