    Food-limited growth of larval Atlantic herring Clupea harengus recurrently observed in a coastal nursery area

    Food-limited growth of larval fish, defined as growth rates lower than observed in other habitats or from laboratory experiments at a given temperature, is rarely reported in field studies. This would imply t...

    Epibiontic associations between apostomid ciliates Conidophrys spp. and amphipods associated with fish farms fouling in the western Mediterranean Sea

    Fish farms commonly support high abundances of invertebrates, especially amphipods, associated with fouling communities developed over nets, ropes and buoys. Protozoan epibiont ciliates of the genus Conidophrys w...

    Growth of Mya arenaria L. at the northern edge of the range: heterogeneity of soft-shell clam growth characteristics in the White Sea

    Linear growth of soft-shell clams, Mya arenaria L., was studied at six locations in the White Sea situated in the middle and low tidal zones. The main aim was to analyse the growth heterogeneity both within beds ...
