Experimental studies on selection for vegetative structure by Penaeid shrimp
(U.S. National Marine Fisheries Service, Southeast Fisheries Service, 1990)
Variability in selection for vegetated habitats by juvenile brown shrimp, Penaeus aztecus, and white shrimp, P. setiferus, as evidenced by distributions in estuaries, suggests that the value of these habitats is not constant. ...
The role of estuarine habitats in regulating growth and survival of juvenile penaeid shrimp.
(Elsevier Science Publishing Company, Incorporated, 1991)
Modifications of estuarine habitats are inevitable, but information on habitat functions can be used to protect those habitats most valuable to fishery species. Density patterns of young brown shrimp in estuaries reflect ...
Variability of zooplankton tows in a shallow estuary
(Port Aransas Marine Laboratory, University of Texas Marine Science Institute, 1981)
Short-term variability in the zooplankton of a shallow estuary with minimal tidal fluctuations in the northwestern Gulf of Mexico was examined at one station on April 13 through 15, 1976. Densities were estimated from three ...
Utilization of marsh and associated habitats along a salinity gradient in Galveston Bay
(U.S. Dept. of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Marine Fisheries Service, Southeast Fisheries Center, Galveston Laboratory, 1990)
The purpose of this study was to characterize marsh use by fishery species relative to salinity regime. Several hypthoseses were proposed. The central hypothesis was that marshes in the mid-range salinity regimes are more ...
Selection of vegetated habitat by brown shrimp, Penaeus aztecus, in a Galveston Bay salt marsh
(U.S. Dept. of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Marine Fisheries Service, 1984)
Densities of the brown shrimp, Penaeus aztecus, in vegetated and nonvegetated habitats of a Galveston West Bay salt marsh were compared. Each of 81 sample pairs taken between 29 March and 23 July 1982 consisted of one ...
