Food availability to natural oyster populations: Food, flow and flux
(, 1993 200)
Food availability to natural oyster (Crassostrea virginica) populations is dependent upon the quantity of food present, water flow speed, and oyster density. Field experiments were conducted (Confederate Reef, Galveston ...
The fate of Galveston Bay oyster populations in the first 50 years of the 21st century under the Texas water plan
(, 1995 199)
A coupled hydrodynamics/population dynamics model has been developed to assess the impact of reduced freshwater inflow into Galveston Bay in the first 50 years of the next century on oyster production in the bay. Simulations ...
An improved method for mapping oyster bottom using a global positioning system and an acoustic profiler
(, 1992 199)
A method for rapidly and relatively inexpensively mapping oyster bottom is described. The method uses an acoustic profiler to differentiate substrate type, a fathometer to assess bottom relief and a global positioning ...
Quantitative evaluation of gonadal proteins in male and female oysters (Crassostrea virginica ) using an immunological technique
(, 1989 199)
A polyclonal antibody has been produced against egg protein and sperm protein of the American oyster for obtaining a weight-based gonadal index. The gonadal index was expressed in the form: mg gonadal protein/g wet wt ...
Modeling oyster populations: The effect of density and food supply on production
(, 1991 199)
A time-dependent model has been developed to assess the response of oyster populations to environmental variables and the importance of population density in optimizing yield under varying climatic and hydrologic conditions. ...
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 ...
