Monitoring the temperature regimes to which the Pacific oyster Ceassostrea gigas is subject to in coastal inlets in Britain (the Fleet Lagoon and Teign and Dart estuaries) in relation to their reproductive success
(1994)

A report on temperature regimes experienced in coastal inlets in Britain and their effect on the reproductive success of the Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas.

Summary

Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas is an invasive species and there has been debate over its ability to reproduce successfully and therefore become established in British waters.


In this study temperatures were monitored over the course of twelve months, from March 1993 to March 1994, at sites on the south coast of Britain in the vicinity of Pacific oyster cultivation, where spatfall has been detected in recent years or where it was considered likely to occur on the basis of prevailing conditions.
