The effects of exposure to suspended silt, kaolin and fuller's
earth on growth and condition of Pacific oysters, 16 months of age,
were studied. The exposure apparatus maintained a continuous flow
of turbid water through chambers containing test oysters. Additional
studies measured the filtration rates of oysters exposed to suspended...
This study consisted of determining some of the conditions for
culture of young English sole (Parophrys vetulus Girard) in the laboratory.
Rearing of the larvae to the juvenile stage was attempted
unsuccessfully; techniques used and problems encountered during culture
are discussed. Growth of juveniles was studied at combinations of
Benthic samples were collected during the summer, winter and
spring seasons from upper Yaquina Estuary, a region used by Georgia-
Pacific Corporation for log dumping and storage. Samples came from
an active log dump and storage areas as well as areas not associated
with log handling activity. The samples were...
The metabolism of malathion in vivo was studied by injection of adult male Dungeness crab, Cancer magister, with 0.75 [mu]g/g wet weight [³H] malathion. At selected times within 24 hours of injection, subsamples of three crabs were taken for analysis of malathion and metabolites. Malathion was extensively activated by oxidative...
Coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) were exposed to sublethal levels of a water-soluble fraction (WSF) of Cook Inlet crude oil for periods ranging from 18 to 31 days, at four acclimation temperatures. The fatty acid composition of phospholipids extracted from muscle, gill, liver, and brain tissues, and, at three of the...
Since the "200 miles" fishery conservation zones
were established by some coastal countries, new arrangements
between countries to participate jointly in
fishing, processing, and marketing of fish products
have emerged. One such fish product is surimi. As a
result of extended jurisdiction, each coastal country's
interest in the surimi industry...
The primary purpose of this study is to investigate the salmon
demand of Japanese households. The specific goals are to illuminate
the substitutional relationship between salmon and other foods and to
examine seasonal and regional differences in salmon demand.
To analyze substitutional relationships and seasonal
differences, monthly data on consumption...
