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 702 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
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 624 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

Species profiles : life histories and environmental requirements of coastal fishes and invertebrates (Pacific Southwest) : California sea mussel and bay mussel by William N Shaw( Book )

7 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Species profiles are literature summaries of the taxonomy, morphology, distribution, life history, and environmental requirements of coastal aquatic species. They are prepared to assist in environmental impact assessment. The California sea mussel, Mytilus californianus, and the bay mussel, M. edulis, are commonly collected for bait. Some commercial landing and aquaculture occurs at a very low level of production. Both species are distributed along the California coast; the sea mussel is more commonly found on intertidal coastal rocks and the bay mussel on pilings and other hard substrates in bays and estuaries. The eggs of both species develop into a trochophore stage in 12-24 hours afer fertilization, and the planktonic larval stage lasts 3-4 weeks. Sexual maturity can occur in one year. Spawning of the sea mussel occurs sporadically throughout the year; the bay mussel spawn in central California in late fall and winter. Maximum length is 120-150 mm for the bay mussel and 200-250 mm for the sea mussel. Both species are regarded as unsafe to eat from May 1 to October 31 due to the possible presence of paralytic shellfish poisoning.

Species profiles : life histories and environmental requirements of coastal fishes and invertebrates (South Florida) : long-spined black sea urchin by John C Ogden( Book )

6 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Species profiles are literature summaries of the taxonomy, morphology, range, life history and environmental impact assessment. The long-spined black sea urchin, Diadema antillarum, is one of the most common marine invertebrates in the South Florida and Caribbean regions. Diadema is gregarious and is found in large groups on hard bottom in shallow waters. Spawning is year-round, concentrated in late winter to early summer, and the larvae spend in maximum size of about 10 cm in 3 to 4 years. Diadema is a grazer, feeding on small algal filaments and on seagrass, and tends to be active at night. Grazing activities can produce grazed halos around patch reefs in the vicinity of seagrass beds. Many experiments have indicated the importance of this grazing in the coexistence of species on the reef and in maintaining high biological productivity. In 1983-84, Diadema suffered an unprecedented mass mortality and its populations were reduced by up to 98% throughout its range. The elimination of Diadema has affected algal biomass, reef productivity, and fish populations. Diadema populations are slowly beginning to increase, but complete recovery may take years.

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
