Scallop Balance- Modeling for Management

Model results of Scallop Scope for Growth, for Jan-Feb and Mar-Apr with color scale above

In the recent publication of Fisheries Oceanography, Zhengchen Zang et al. share their sea scallop scope for growth (SFG) model. Scallop energy dynamics depend on the spatial and seasonal variability on the Northeast US Shelf. The scallop SFG model is therefore driven by high-resolution hydrodynamic and biological models and provides key information about scallop growth…

L&O Letters- When It’s Spring in the Gulf of Maine

Bar chart with Years 2001-2016 on y-axis and months Feb-Jun on x-axis showing 4 patterns of the duration and timing of bloom patterns

In a recent publication to Limnology and Oceanography Letters, Zhengchen Zang et al. share work on the role of silicate in the Gulf of Maine. In this study, they employed an artificial neural network method to identify the spring blooms from satellite images and reconstructed the spring bloom magnitude with strong interannual variability. This study…
