Interest in bay scallop conservation has resulted in organized stock enhancement efforts and increased attention to fisheries management issues. Genetic markers can facilitate the monitoring of enhancement efforts, characterization of wild populations, and optimize hatchery practices. We have identified eight polymorphic simple sequence repeat markers including one dinucleotide, six trinucleotide and one compound dinucleotide repeats, in expressed sequence tags generated from multiple bay scallop cDNA libraries. The numbers of alleles range from two to five. The expected and observed heterozygosities range from 0.093 to 0.720 and 0.095 to 0.600, respectively.

Processing of ingested dimethylsulfoniopropionate by mussels Mytilus edulis and scallops Argopecten irradians Hill, Richard W.; Dacey, John W. H. (Inter-Research, 2007-08-07)Dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) synthesized by marine phytoplankton is the principal source of dimethylsulfide (DMS), an important climate-affecting gas. Grazing by small zooplankton on phytoplankton often accelerates ...
Early exposure of bay scallops (Argopecten irradians) to high CO2 causes a decrease in larval shell growth White, Meredith M.; McCorkle, Daniel C.; Mullineaux, Lauren S.; Cohen, Anne L. (Public Library of Science, 2013-04-15)Ocean acidification, characterized by elevated pCO2 and the associated decreases in seawater pH and calcium carbonate saturation state (Ω), has a variable impact on the growth and survival of marine invertebrates.

Growth and development of larval bay scallops (Argopecten irradians) in response to early exposure to high CO2 White, Meredith M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2013-02)Coastal and estuarine environments experience large variability and rapid shifts in pCO2 levels. Elevated pCO2, or ocean acidification, often negatively affects early life stages of calcifying m ...
