Effects Of River Flow Regulation By Salem Church Dam On Marine Organisms, J. D. Andrews

Reports

This report is concernen primarily with the effects on oysters and some of their associates of hydrographic changes that would be caused by the dam. Other marine organisms are certain to be affected in ways only vaguely preceived at present. The distribution and activity of oyster drills and certain diseases of oysters, such as those caused by MSX and Dermocystidium, are regulated annually or at intervals of several years by low spring salinities and high summer and fall salinities.
