Qpx Susceptibility In Hard Clams Varies With Geographic Origin Of Brood Stock, Lisa M. Ragone Calvo, Eugene Burreson Aug 2002

Qpx Susceptibility In Hard Clams Varies With Geographic Origin Of Brood Stock, Lisa M. Ragone Calvo, Eugene Burreson

Reports

T he results of recent investigations by VIMS and collaborating scientists in Massachusetts and New Jersey indicate that clam strains produced from brood stocks of South Carolina and Florida origin are more susceptible to QPX (Quahog Parasite Unknown) disease than clam strains originating from Virginia, New Jersey, and Massachusetts brood stocks. During a 3-year study clam strains produced at VIMS from brood stocks originating from Massachusetts, New Jersey, Virginia, South Carolina, and Florida were grown at sites in Massachusetts, New Jersey and Virginia and evaluated for survival, growth, condition and QPX disease susceptibility. The clams originating from South Carolina and ...

Bay Scallop Culture, Michael J. Oesterling Jan 1998

Bay Scallop Culture, Michael J. Oesterling

Reports

In the mid-1960s the bay scallop, Argopecten irradians, was identified by scientists at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) as having culture potential for Virginia waters. Mike Castagna at the VIMS Wachapreague Laboratory demonstrated the biological feasibility of culturing bay scallops from egg to market size within a one year period. At that time, culture for scallop meat production was not economically favorable and the need for better grow-out technology precluded further development of this industry in Virginia. With the change in marketing towards a whole, in-the-shell product and improved or alternative grow-out technology, bay scallop culture activities were ...

Regulating The Blue Crab, Callinectes Sapidus, Fishery In Virginia : Biological And Economic Concerns, James E. Kirkley, William D. Dupaul, Michael J. Oesterling

Reports

The blue crab, Callinectes sapiclus, fishery has been one of the most important fisheries of Virginia. The importance of the fishery in terms of commercial activities has substantially increased in recent years in response to declining resource levels of American Oyster, Crassostrea virginica, and a growing international and domestic demand for soft crabs, female hard crabs, and crab meat.

The actual economic importance of the fishery, however, is not well known. For example, what are the employment and earning levels generated by the fishery? What portion of a waterman's household income is derived from crabbing? How much does crabbing ...


A Profile Of The Oyster Industry Northeastern United States, Douglas Lipton, James Kirkley Feb 1994

A Profile Of The Oyster Industry Northeastern United States, Douglas Lipton, James Kirkley

Reports

This is a critical period for the future of the east coast oyster industry. This report documents the dramatic decline in industry output which has been the impetus for a publicly funded program to "revtalize" the industry. Oyster biologists argue over the severityy of the decline and the cause, and also the potential remedies. Should non-native oysters, specifically Crassostrea gigas, be introduced into the region to replace the native oyster production? Are there ways to manage around the devastating oyster diseases MSX and Dermo? Will large populations of oysters significantly improve the water quality in currentiy degraded areas?

While these ...

Potential Range Of The Zebra Mussel, Dreissena Polymorpha, In And Near Virginia, Patrick Baker, Shirley Baker, Roger Mann Jan 1994

Potential Range Of The Zebra Mussel, Dreissena Polymorpha, In And Near Virginia, Patrick Baker, Shirley Baker, Roger Mann

Reports

This publication is devoted to predictions of the probability of invasion by the zebra mussel, Dreissena polymorpha (and the quagga mussel, Dreissena sp.) to specific bodies of water in Virginia. Probability of invasion is divided into risk and susceptibility. Risk refers to the chance, relative to other sites, that a body of water will be inoculated with Dreissena, in sufficient number to establish a population. Inoculation can occur by natural dispersal, but in the mid-Atlantic region is most likely to-occur though accidental introduction by humans, especially via boat traffic. Susceptibility of a body of water refers to the probability, based ...
