Scaling Ecosystem Services To Reef Development : Effects Of Oyster Density On Nitrogen Removal And Reef Community Structure, Lisa M. Kellogg, Jeffrey C. Cornwell, Michael S. Owens, Mark W. Luckenbach, Paige G. Ross, Thomas A. Leggett Nov 2014

Scaling Ecosystem Services To Reef Development : Effects Of Oyster Density On Nitrogen Removal And Reef Community Structure, Lisa M. Kellogg, Jeffrey C. Cornwell, Michael S. Owens, Mark W. Luckenbach, Paige G. Ross, Thomas A. Leggett

Reports

Eighteen native oyster experimental reefs (16-m2 each) were restored using six oyster densities (0, 10, 25, 50, 100 and 250 adult oysters m-2) with three replicates of each density at each of two sites: one subtidal site in Onancock Creek, Virginia and one intertidal site in Hillcrest Oyster Sanctuary within The Nature Conservancy’s Virginia Coast Reserve. A science-based monitoring program explored quantitative relationships between structural and functional characteristics of these restored reefs. Structural parameters examined included oyster abundance, oyster size/biomass, surface shell volume, reef topographic complexity and sediment characteristics. Functional parameters included denitrification rates and macrofaunal abundance and ...

Evaluating Recruitment Of American Eel, Anguilla Rostrata, In The Potomac River (Spring 2014), Troy D. Tuckey, Mary C. Fabrizio Sep 2014

Evaluating Recruitment Of American Eel, Anguilla Rostrata, In The Potomac River (Spring 2014), Troy D. Tuckey, Mary C. Fabrizio

Reports

The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) adopted the Interstate Fishery Management Plan (FMP) for the American Eel in November 1999. The FMP focuses on increasing coastal states’ efforts to collect American Eel data through both fishery‐dependent and fishery‐independent studies. Consequently, member jurisdictions agreed to implement an annual survey for young‐of‐year (YOY) American eels. The survey is intended to “…characterize trends in annual recruitment of the YOY eels over time [to produce a] qualitative appraisal of the annual recruitment of American Eel to the U.S. Atlantic Coast” (ASMFC 2000). The development of these surveys began ...

Regional Differences In Quality Of Krill And Fish As Prey Along The Western Antarctic Peninsula, Kate E. Ruck, Deborah K. Steinberg, Elizabeth A. Canuel Aug 2014

Regional Differences In Quality Of Krill And Fish As Prey Along The Western Antarctic Peninsula, Kate E. Ruck, Deborah K. Steinberg, Elizabeth A. Canuel

VIMS Articles

The warming trend in the northern part of the Western Antarctic Peninsula (WAP) has led to a decrease in perennial and summer sea ice, an increase in heat content over the shelf, and lower phytoplankton biomass, which could affect the prey quality of krill and fish that are utilized by apex predators. We compared prey quality metrics, including elemental (C, N) content; total, neutral, and polar lipid content; and energy densities of known penguin prey items including krill (Euphausia superba, Thysanoessa macrura, and E. crystallorophias) and fish (silverfish Pleuragramma antarcticum and the myctophid Electrona antarctica) along the WAP latitudinal gradient ...
