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

122 editions published between 1986 and 1989 in English and held by 4,943 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 pink salmon, often called humpback salmon or humpy, is easily identified by its extremely small scales (150 to 205) on the lateral line. They are the most abundant of the Pacific salmon species and spawn in North American and Asian streams bordering the Pacific and Arctic Oceans. They have a very simple two- year life cycle, which is so invariable that fish running in odd-numbered years are isolated from fish running in even-numbered years so that no gene flow occurs between them. Adults spawn in the fall and the young fry emerge in the spring. The pink salmon is less desirable in commercial and sport pale flesh. The Puget Sound region of Washington State is the southern geographic limit of streams supporting major pink salmon runs in the eastern North Pacific. Pink salmon runs are presently only in odd-numbered years in this region. Optimum water temperatures for spawning range from 7.2 to 12.8 deg C. Productive pink salmon streams have less than 5.0% by volume of fine sediments (<or = 0.8 mm).

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

29 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 699 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 (North Atlantic and mid-Atlantic) : tautog and cunner by Peter J Auster( Book )

15 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Species profiles are literature summaries on taxonomy, morphology, range, life history, and environmental requirements of coastal finfishes and shellfishes. They are designed to assist in environmental impact assessment. The systematic classification of the sand lances Ammodytes americanus and Ammodytes dubius is confusing because of overlapping meristic values. In this report, all sand lances in the North Atlantic area off the coast of the United States are treated as a combined group (Ammodytes spp.). Sand lances occur in estuarine, open coast, and offshore habitats. They are important prey to many commercially and recreationally valuable fish and marine mammals. Spawning occurs principally inshore between November and March. Larvae are found along the coasts to the edge of the Continental Shelf. Sand lances occur in schools of from tens of thousands of individuals. They are planktivorous predators; copepods are their major prey item. To rest and to take refuge from predators, sand lances burrow into sand substrates. One ot three-year-old fish dominate populations. Growth rate probably increases from the New York Bight to the Nova Scotia banks. Exploitation of sand lances off the Northeast coast of the United States is presently only for baitfish

Hourly and daily variation of sediment redox potential in tidal wetland sediments by W. James Catallo( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Variation of electrochemical oxidation-reduction (redox) potential was examined in surface salt marsh sediments under conditions of flooding and tidal simulation in mesocosms and field sites. Time series were generated of redox potential measured in sediment profiles at 2-10 cm depth using combination Pt-Ag/AgCl (ORP) electrodes. Redox potential data were acquired at rapid rates (1-55 samples/h) over extended periods (3-104 days) along with similar times series of temperature (water, air, soil) and pH. It was found that redox potential varied as a result of water level changes and was unrelated to diurnal changes in temperature or pH, the latter of which changed by < 0.5 units over the tide cycles. In closed, hydrostatic microcosms isolated from atmospheric oxygen, development of negative redox potentials proceeded rapidly (> 370 mV redox potential decrease in under 48 h). Attenuation of microbial activity by gamma-radiation and toxic chemicals eliminated this response. In tidal salt marsh mesocosms where the sediment-plant assemblages were exposed to a simulated diurnal tide, redox potential oscillations of 40-300 mV amplitude were recorded that had the same periodicity as the flood-drain cycle. Periodic redox potential time series were observed repeatedly in sediments receiving tidal pulsing but not in those sediments exposed to static hydrological conditions. Data collected over 12 days from a coastal marsh site experiencing diurnal tides showed similar fluctuations in redox potential. Data from these experiments indicated that: (a) redox potential can be a dynamic, nonlinear variable in coastal and estuarine wetland sediments over hourly and daily scales, and the designs of biogeochemical experiments should reflect this, and (b) redox potential can change rapidly and significantly in coastal wetland sediments in response to flooding and draining
