Species profiles : life histories and environmental requirements of coastal fishes and invertebrates (Pacific Northwest) : Pacific oyster by Gilbert B Pauley( Book )

45 editions published between 1983 and 1986 in English and held by 1,485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Species profiles are literature summaries of the life history, distribution, and environmental requirements of coastal fishes and invertebrates. Profiles are prepared to assist with environmental impact assessment. The Atlantic menhaden (Brevoortia tyrannus) is an important commercial fish along the Atlantic coast. In the South Atlantic Region, Atlantic menhaden spawn during winter in continental shelf waters. Adults then move inshore and northward in spring; some move into estuaries as far as the brackish-freshwater boundary. Atlantic menhaden larvae in the South Atlantic Region enter estuaries after 1 to 3 months at sea. Young fish move into the shallow regions of estuaries and seem to prefer vegetated marsh habitats. Atlantic menhaden are size-selective plankton feeders as larvae, and filter feeders as juveniles and adults. Due to their large population size, individual growth rates, and seasonal movements, Atlantic menhaden annually consume and redistribute large amounts of energy and materials. They are also important prey for large game fishes such as bluefish (Pomatomus saltatrix), striped bass (Morone saxatilis), and bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus). The Atlantic menhaden is associated with estuarine and nearshore systems during all phases of its life cycles. Young menhaden require these food-rich habitats to survive and grow. Destruction of estuarine wetlands has decreased nursery habitat available to Atlantic menhaden and other estuarine-dependent species. (AW)
Species profiles : life histories and environmental requirements of coastal fishes and invertebrates (North Atlantic) : alewife/blueback herring by Jon G Stanley( Book )

33 editions published between 1983 and 1986 in English and held by 1,028 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Species profiles are literature summaries of the taxonomy, morphology, range, life history, and environmental requirements of coastal aquatic species. They are designed to assist in environmental impact assessment. The American oyster, Crassostrea virginica, is an important commercial and mariculture species. Spawning occurs repeatedly during warmer months with millions of eggs released. Embryos and larvae are carried by currents throughout the estuaries and oceanic bays where they occur. The few surviving larvae cement themselves to a solid object, where they remain for the remainder of life. Unable to move, they must tolerate changes in the environment that range from -1.7 to 49 C, 5 to 30 ppt salinity, and clear or muddy water

Review and synthesis of existing information were used to develop a habitat model for lesser snow geese. Model is scaled to produce an index of habitat suitability between 0 and 1.0 for lesser snow goose wintering habitat in Gulf of Mexico coastal areas of Texas and Louisiana. Guidelines for application of model are provided
