Species profiles : life histories and environmental requirements of coastal fishes and invertebrates (Gulf of Mexico) by Frederick C Sutter( Book )

2 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This species profile is one of a series on coastal aquatic organisms, principally fish, of sport, commercial, or ecological importance. The profiles are designed to provide coastal managers, engineers, and biologists with a brief sketch of the biological characteristics and environmental requirements of the species and to describe how the species may be expected to react to environmental changes caused by coastal development. Each profile has sections on taxonomy, life history, ecological role, environmental requirements, and economic importance, if applicable. Keywords: Pogonias cromis; Black drum; Sea drum; Gray drum; Oyster cracker; Drum fish; Banded drum; Striped drum; Puppy drum; and Butterfly drum; Life cycles; Habitats; Reproduction; Marine biology
Development of Carcinogenesis Bioassay Models: Response of Small Fish Species to Various Classes of Carcinogens( Book )

2 editions published between 1989 and 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The project was designed to expand the usefulness and exploit the advantages of small fish carcinogenesis models. Studies have focused on two primary species, the Japanese medaka (Oryzias latipes) and the guppy (Poecilia reticulata). This report, arranged in referenced publication format, describes the following studies: (1) carcinogenesis tests with the halogenated hydrocarbon 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane (TeCE), (2) the heavy metal cadmium, and (3) the aromatic amine 2-acetylaminofluorene (AAF); hepatic metabolism studies with dibromide (EDB); (4) AAF and (5) ethylene and the occurrence of (6) thymic lymphoma and (7) acinar cell carcinomas of the exocrine pancreas. Keywords: Small fish; Medaka; Guppy; Carcinogenesis; Bioassay; Pathology; 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane; Cadmium; 2-acetylaminofluorene; Ethylene dibromide; RA 3. (EG)
Salinity problems of organisms in coastal areas subject to the effect of engineering works by Gordon Gunter( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The nongaseous substances normally moving in and out of cells are metabolites, water and salts. The common salts in water determine its salinity, and the definition of sea water salinity and its composition are discussed. The relationships to salinity of all phyla of animals living in the coastal waters are reviewed, with emphasis on the estuaries of the Gulf coast and Atlantic coast of the United States, areas particularly influenced by coastal engineering works and changes of salinity caused thereby.

Species profiles : life histories and environmental requirements of coastal fishes and invertebrates (Mid-Atlantic) by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Species profiles are literature summaries of the taxonomy, morphology, range, life history, and environmental requirements of coastal aquatic species. They are designed to assist in environmental impact assessment. Sand seatrout are one of the most abundant fishes in the estuarine and nearshore areas of the Gulf of Mexico. Although silver seatrout are also abundant, little research has been conducted for this species. Sand seatrout spawn in lower estuarine environments or in nearshore gulf waters with two spawning; one in spring, and another in late summer. Silver seatrout follow a similar reproductive pattern. Sand seatrout are common in bays, sounds, and shallow offshore gulf water, while silver seatrout are more abundant in deeper waters. Both seatrout are important components in the industrial bottom fisheries; and seatrout also are a valuable recreational species. Shrimp and other crustaceans are most commonly eaten by small sand and silver seatrout, while larger fish shift to a more piscivorous diet. Small sand seatrout are usually found in waters with temperatures greater than 15 C and salinity values less than 15 ppt, while larger fish are found over a wider temperature range (5 to 30 C), and in salinities greater than 15 ppt. Silver seatrout generally prefer waters salinities greater than 25 ppt with temperatures ranging from 5 to 30 C
Species Profiles: Life Histories and Environmental Requirements of Coastal Fishes and Invertebrates (Gulf of Mexico). Blue Crab by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Species profiles are summaries of the literature on taxonomy, morphology, range, life history, and environmental requirements of coastal aquatic species. They are designed to assist in environmental impact assessment. The blue crab, Callinectes sapidus, is common in tidal marsh estuaries and coastal waters of the Gulf of Mexico, occupying a variety of habitats depending upon the physiological requirements of each particular stage in its life history. Spawning occurs from spring through fall in high salinity estuarine and/or coastal waters. Development through the 7 zoeal stages requires approximately 31 days and occurs offshore. The megalopal stage is usually completed within a week. Recruitment to the estuary occurs during the megalopal stage. Molt to the first crab takes place within the estuary. Juveniles exhibit wide seasonal and areal distribution. Growth is rapid and blue crabs in the Gulf of Mexico may reach maturity within a year. Factors affecting growth and survival include food availability, predation, substratum, available habitat, temperature, salinity and pollutants. Blue crabs do not conform to specific trophic levels and are characterized as opportunistic benthic omnivores. Their diverse feeding habits and their importance as prey species for a variety of organisms make them an integral part of coastal ecosystems
