Impacts of New Zealand screwshells (Maoricolpus roseus) on growth and condition of juvenile commercial scallops (Pecten fumatus) Research Dataset uri icon

description

  • The impact of the introduction of the New Zealand screwshell (Maoricolpus roseus) on growth, condition and survivorship of juvenile scallops (Pecten fumatus) at Bligh Point in the D'Entrecasteaux Channel, SE Tasmania was investigated. A manipulative experiment was used to quantify the impact associated with live and dead M. roseus shells and to quantify differences in interspecific and intraspecific competition
