Google ScholarCited by: North-eastern Pacific area -- Zostera Very little published information appears to be available on the fishes of the extensive eelgrass beds occurring in this area, although Kikuchi and P~r~s () mention that a study of the distribution and standing stock of Zostera bed fishes in the Izembek Lagoon, Alaska, was carried out by W. Tack Cited by:   Estuarine seagrass ecosystems provide important habitat for fish and invertebrates and changes in these systems may alter their ability to support fish. The response of fish assemblages to alteration of eelgrass (Zostera marina) ecosystems in two ecoregions of the Mid-Atlantic Bight (Buzzards Bay and Chesapeake Bay) was evaluated by sampling historical Cited by:

Clinton2 1 Coastal Ecology Branch, Western Ecology Division, NHEERL, US EPA,2 OAO Corp., SE Marine Science Drive, Newport, OR ABSTRACT . Seasonal dynamics of bacterial biomass and production on eelgrass Zostera marina leaves Erik Törnblom*, Morten Søndergaard Bacterial biomass production was very high compared to the standing stock of bacteria and it was concluded that close to % of the bacterial biomass produced on the leaves was lost on a daily basis. Moreover Cited by: Changes in maximum standing crop may also require data collection several times a year (multi-temporal) in order to distinguish between vegetation types, e.g., eelgrass beds tend to maintain a high standing crop year-round while ulvoids and other algae may only present during the summer. Long-term observations in an enclosed estuarine branch in The Netherlands showed a remarkably strong correlation between water column levels of dissolved silicon (DSi) and standing stock of eelgrass Zostera levels in the leaves of Z. marina varied between and % of tissue dry weight; they were lower in the declining population than in other Cited by:

Structure and standing stock of the fish assemblages of San Diego Bay, California from to Eelgrass beds are an important source of primary production in coastal ecosystems. Understanding seasonal variation in the abundance and distribution of eelgrass is important for conservation, and the objectives of this study were to 1) monitor seasonal variation in eelgrass beds using an acoustic monitoring method (Quantitative echo sounder) and 2) broadly quantify Cited by: 2. Summary. The Puget Sound food web relies on two distinct food web pathways; a phytoplankton-based “grazer” community that directly consumes living organic matter, and a detritus-based community that consumes dying or decaying organic materials that are first transformed by microbes (Seliskar and Gallagher ).
