A study was conducted at Yaquina Bay, Oregon, to determine
the age-fecundity relationships in the striped seaperch Embiotoca
lateralis. A questionnaire was sent to California, Oregon, and
Washington to ascertain what regulations were in effect, and the value
of the family Embiotocidae with regard to the sport and commercial

Estuaries, which provide viable habitat for a plethora of fish and invertebrate species, are being increasingly impacted by anthropogenic and natural forces. Estuaries are important nursery habitat for young-of-the-year (YOY) Pacific rockfish (Sebastes spp.). Yaquina Bay, a marine-dominated estuary on the central Oregon Coast, served as a study site for...
Sediment was fertilized with f/2 algal growth medium
in situ and in the laboratory daily for one week. Sampling
strategy incorporated two intertidal heights and two sites.
Experiments were done in August and January. No significant
changes in chlorophyll a or diatom community structure
were observed after ten days of...
A simplified autoradiographic method for estimating species-specific
phytoplankton production rates in mixed natural communities
was evaluated in the laboratory and employed in the field. Laboratory
experiments were designed to test the reliability and variability of
the simplified method. Assays of ¹⁴C uptake by liquid scintillation
spectrometry were used to evaluate...
Large-volume (20-liter) bioassays were carried out in order to
assess the effects of major nutrients and micro-nutrients on
natural phytoplankton populations in water collected from a site
close to the mouth of Yaquina Bay, Oregon. Seven long-term
experiments were conducted during the years 1975-1976. A stripping
technique employing activated carbon...
