An improved method for mapping oyster bottom using a global positioning system and an acoustic profiler
A method for rapidly and relatively inexpensively mapping oyster (Crassostrea virginica) bottom is described. The method uses an acoustic profiler to differentiate substrate type, a fathometer to assess bottom relief and ...
Modeling oyster populations. 3. Critical feeding periods, growth and reproduction
A time-dependent population dynamics model for oyster (Crassostrea virginica) populations is used to test the hypothesis that variations in the seasonal sequence in temperature and food supply are responsible for observed ...
Temporal variability in food availability to natural oyster populations
(, 1992 199)
Productivity in oyster populations is partially determined by food availability, which is dependent on the amount of food resources in the water and characteristics of the water flow making that food available to the ...
