River confluence and Isleton to collect phytoplankton, zooplankton, and bivalve
ABSTRACT The fan mussel Pinna nobilis (Linnaeus, 1758) is an endangered bivalve
species and is endemic to the Mediterranean Sea.
The dominance of mobile scavengers and predators, as well as semi-infaunal bivalves
and soft-bodied biota, together with a paucity of brachiopods, suggests unstable mud substrates and/or high turbidity near the sediment-water interface.
In each sampling site identified, different habitats of where the bivalves
were situated were noted.
Cadmium concentrations in bivalves
, crustaceans, gastropods, and cephalopods in five sampled months were in the ranges of 0.
His team focuses on marine bivalves
because they combine a wealth of important biological patterns with a large but manageable number of living species (about 8,000) and a rich fossil record.
The checklist will provide scientists, managers and visitors with means to identify the bivalves
of the St Lucia Estuary.
As far as we know, no previous RAPD-PCR analysis has been carried out on the freshwater bivalves
or unionids found in Egypt.
Q A seafood recipe I want to try calls for bivalves
These invasive freshwater bivalves
(zebra mussel and the close relative, the quagga mussel) are having a billion dollar impact on the North American economy and major negative impacts on freshwater ecosystems.
Like many bivalves
, Atlantic calico scallops (Argopecten gibbus, Linnaeus, 1758) begin life as males, though some switch to female as they age.
Fresh, live seaweed (such as rockweed) are an integral part of ocean ecosystems at tide lines and are nursery areas for fish, crabs, lobsters, bivalves
and other critters.
Although not as well known as the lobster trade, the aquaculture production of bivalves
is an industry valued at approximately $26,000,000.
Red tide produces a potent neurotoxin that accumulates in the tissue of bivalves
, and while it doesn't harm its host it can cause paralysis or respiratory problems for seafood fans.
The three major groups of mollusks are gastropods (such as snails), bivalves
(such as clams), and cephalopods (such as squids).
