Water Quality Trends In The Lynnhaven Bay : A Report To The Hampton Roads Water Quality Agency, Bruce J. Neilson Nov 1982

Water Quality Trends In The Lynnhaven Bay : A Report To The Hampton Roads Water Quality Agency, Bruce J. Neilson

Reports

The Lynnhaven Bay system is perceived by many to have a high value because of its aesthetic qualities. It is an attractive body of water to live by and enjoy. Its general cleanliness and combination of broad bays and small coves make it ideal for sailing, boating and other recreational activities. Historically the Lynnhaven oyster·has been acclaimed as an epicurean delight. These positive qualities and proximity to more urbanized areas have attracted many to live either on its shore or within the basin. What was almost entirely rural is becoming more and more urbanized. The urbanization has been underway ...

The Impact Of Low Salinities On James River Oyster Populations 1979-1980, Dexter S. Haven Feb 1982

The Impact Of Low Salinities On James River Oyster Populations 1979-1980, Dexter S. Haven

Reports

During the fall, winter and spring of 1979-1980 there was an extensive and prolonged mortality of the 1979 se•t of oysters in the James River, Virginia. Yearling oysters died at lesser rates, with mortalities starting in mid-winter. Small oysters showed moderate to 100% mortalities at two locations. Market-sized oysters showed the lowest mortality. Deaths were associated with prolonged periods of low salinity.

The James River Public Seed Oyster Area In Virginia (A Review Of 22 Years Of Setting And Population Studies, 1946 To 1967 And Changes Caused By Minchinia Nelsoni (Msx) After 1960), Jay D. Andrews

Reports

The seed-oyster area is located in a low-salinity sector of the James River where seasonal riverflows and resulting salinities vary widely. Low spring salinities, usually below 10 °/oo in April or May, eliminate most predators and diseases. Prior to 1960, spatfalls were regular and moderate in intensity each year. High quality seed oysters 2 to 3 inches in size were produced with 1000 to 2000 thick-shelled oysters per bushel for use by private-ground planterH. Following the advent of M. nelsoni (MSX) in Chesapeake Bay in 1959:, setting declined to about one-tenth previous levels and there were spatfall failures in many ...
