Species profiles : life histories and environmental requirements of coastal fishes and invertebrates (Pacific southwest) : brown rockfish, copper rockfish, and black rockfish by William N Shaw( Book )

72 editions published between 1986 and 1989 in English and held by 4,168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This species profile is one of a series on coastal aquatic organisms, principally fish, of sport, commercial, or ecological importance. The profiles are designed to provide coastal managers, engineers, and biologists with a brief comprehensive sketch of the biological characteristics and environmental requirements of the species and to describe how populations of the species may be expected to react to environmental changes caused by coastal development. Each profile has sections on taxonomy, life history, ecological role, environmental requirements, and economic importance, if applicable. The Pacific herring has a long history of exploitation for human consumption and reduction of fisheries for animal feeds and as an item of trade. It also provides food for a wide variety of pelagic, intertidal, and avian predators. The Pacific herring is particularly susceptible to the influences of shoreline development because its spawning grounds are limited to rather specific intertidal and shallow subtidal locations. This and other life history characteristics also make it susceptible to overfishing. Fishes life cycles. (edc)

Species profiles : life histories and environmental requirements of coastal fishes and invertebrates (South Atlantic) : white shrimp by Robert J Muncy( Book )

34 editions published between 1983 and 1989 in English and held by 838 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Species profiles are literature summaries on the taxonomy, morphology, distribution, life history, and environmental requirements of coastal aquatic invertebrates and fishes. They are designed to assist with assist with environmental impact assessment. The summer flounder, Paralichthyes dentatus, is an important commercial and recreational fish along the Atlantic seaboard of the United States. Adult summer flounder are migratory and prey on other fishes and invertebrates. They spawn in offshore shelf waters during late fall, winter, and early spring, and larvae move to inshore nursery areas during late winter and spring. Juveniles are found in a variety of habitats where salinities generally exceed 10 ppt, and the young may remain in estuarine nursery areas for as long as 20 months before participating in seasonal offshore migrations. Adults may live 10 years and generally are found in nearshore areas during late spring, summer, and early fall. The influences of temperature, salinity, and substrate on summer flounder are not well documented. Juveniles grow fastest at salinities above 10 ppt and they appear to prefer sandy substrates rather than mud or silt bottoms. They species may undergo diel moments to areas having submerged vegetation during daylight
