This paper gives an overview of interactions betweenbivalve grazing and ecosystem processes, that mayaffect the carrying capacity of ecosystems for bivalvesuspension feeders. These interactions consist of anumber of positive and negative feedbacks.Bivalve grazing can result in local food...
A one-dimensional ecosystem box model is presented forcarrying capacity assessment. The model includesphysical and biological processes. The physicalprocesses are the transport of nutrients, suspendedmatter and phytoplankton through the system boundariesand between model boxes. The biological...
Based on the individual growth, food limitation,population renewal through seeding, and individualmarketable size, a theoretical model of the culturedspecies population dynamics was used to assess thecarrying capacity of an ecosystem. It gave adome-shape curve relating the annual production...
SMOES, a dynamic box model for the Oosterschelde ecosystem (SWNetherlands), has been applied to assess the effect of anthropogenicnutrient load reductions on suspension feeder biomass. The model, originallydeveloped to study the ecological effects of the building of a storm-surgebarrier situated...
The carrying capacity of suspension feeding bivalvesin 11 coastal and estuarine ecosystems is examined. Bivalve carrying capacity is defined in terms of watermass residence time, primary production time andbivalve clearance time. Turnover times for the 11ecosystems are compared both two and...
The concept of carrying capacity of an ecosystem fornatural populations is derived from the logisticgrowth curve in population ecology, and defined as themaximum standing stock that can be supported by agiven ecosystem for a given time. This definitionneeds to be modified for the exploitation...
