In contrast, three year-round, estuarine species, Fundulus heteroditus Linnaeus (mummichog), Cyprinodon variegatus Lacepede (sheepshead minnow), and Pseudopleuronectes americanus
Walbaum (winter flounder) (Able and Fahay, 1998; Smith and Able, 1994) were hypothesized to be tolerant of low winter temperatures because they are considered resident.
ABSTRACT Two antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) of marine origin, tachyplesiu from the Japanese horseshoe crab, Tachypleus tridentatus, and pleurocidin-amide from the winter flounder, Pseudopleuronectes americanus
, were tested for their potential effectiveness in disease treatment in oyster aquaculture.
Timing of metamorphosis in young-of-the-year Pseudopleuronectes americanus
Walbaum (winter flounder) was closely linked to temperature in four estuaries along the coast of New Jersey.
Bioavailability, as determined by the extent of chemical bioaccumulation and bioelimination, was examined in winter flounder, Pseudopleuronectes americanus
, a finfish common to inshore waters of the Northwest Atlantic.
Spatial dynamics of habitat suitability for the growth of newly settled winter flounder Pseudopleuronectes americanus
in an estuarine nursery.
The effect of dissolved oxygen on the growth of young-of-the-year winter flounder, Pseudopleuronectes americanus
also showed decreasing growth rates during successive caging trials, with growth rate significantly reduced by the end of June.
Seasonal movements of the winter flounder Pseudopleuronectes americanus
(Walbaum), on the Atlantic coast.
ABSTRACT: The stomach contents of 326 young-of-the-year winter flounder, Pseudopleuronectes americanus
, (20-65 mm total length, TL) obtained from caging studies (n=26) conducted June-July (1996-1998) and collected in benthic traps (n=30) deployed in June-July (1999) in the Hudson River estuary were examined to determine whether type and/or size of prey ingested varied with fish size.
Changes in the ribonucleic acid, deoxyribonucleic acid, and protein content during ontogenesis in winter flounder, Pseudopleuronectes americanus
, and the effect of starvation.
