Humboldt Bay Invertebrate

Duration

September 2016 - August 2019

Narrative

Numerous studies on the U.S. West Coast have documented differences in species diversity and abundance associated with estuarine habitat types with and without oyster culture. However, due to the relatively recent transition to off-bottom culture, few studies have addressed how and whether off-bottom oyster culture affects species use and abundance or whether these differences affect the overall food web ecology of the system. We will examine how off-bottom oyster culture influences the benthic invertebrate community in Humboldt Bay, California's second largest estuary.
