Dynamic energy budget (DEB) models of bivalve molluscs inhabiting British Columbia coastal waters: Fs97-6/3173E-PDF

review of existing data and further directions for data collection /

"The use of ecosystem models in aquaculture sites is becoming a common methodology for research and management. Two components are key for a successful model, the conceptual design and the data available for calibration and validation. Regarding conceptual design in the specific field of bivalve energetics, Dynamic Energy Budget (DEB) theory is among one of the most accepted approaches with DEB models available for several species. However, specific model calibration to local conditions is usually required and DEB parameters for many bivalve species are yet to be estimated. The parameterization of a DEB model requires an extensive range of shellfish and supporting ecosystem datasets, some of which may be currently available in the literature. In this study, a review of existing DEB models developed for bivalve molluscs inhabiting British Columbia coastal waters was carried out. In addition, potential datasets for the parameterization of new DEB models were reviewed with a focus on six prevalent bivalve molluscs inhabiting southern British Columbia. Cost-effective experiments designed to cover data gaps are also recommended for future studies. The review is completed with a description of the main DEB parameters and mathematical tools that can be used to parameterize the model for each species, as well as an example using Manila clams as a case-study"--Abstract, p. vi.
