SNP panels genotyping data for the genetic characterization of cupped oyster resources in Europe

Sylvie Lapegue, Serge Heurtebise, Florence Cornette, Erwan Guichoux & Pierre-Alexandre Gagnaire
The Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas, has been voluntarily introduced from Japan and British Columbia into Europe in the early 1970s, mainly to replace the Portuguese oyster, Crassostrea angulata, in the French shellfish industry following a severe disease outbreak. Since then, the two species are in contact in southern Europe and therefore have the potential to exchange genes in a new environment. Whether C. gigas and C. angulata truly represent biological species, semi-isolated species of populations...

ISAS-15 temperature and salinity gridded fields

Nicolas Kolodziejczyk, Annaig Prigent-Mazella & Fabienne Gaillard
The In Situ Analysis System (ISAS) was developed to produce gridded fields of temperature and salinity that preserve as much as possible the time and space sampling capabilities of the Argo network of profiling floats. Since the first global re-analysis performed in 2009, the system has been extended to accommodate all types of vertical profile as well as time series. ISAS gridded fields are entirely based on in-situ measurements. The system aims at monitoring the...

Worldwide, shellfish aquaculture and fisheries in coastal ecosystems represent crucial activities for human feeding. But these biological productions are under the pressure of climate variability and global change. Anticipating the biological processes affected by climate hazards remains a vital objective for species conservation strategies and human activities that rely on. Within marine species, filter feeders like oysters are real key species in coastal ecosystems due to their economic and societal value (fishing and aquaculture) but...

Plastics in sediments and fishes at the mouth of Chollas Creek, San Diego, USA

Theresa Talley, Nina Venuti & Rachel Whelan
The extent to which small plastics and potentially associated compounds are entering coastal food webs, especially in estuarine systems, is only beginning to be realized. This study examined an estuarine reach at the mouth of urbanized Chollas Creek in San Diego, California to determine: 1) the extent and magnitude of microplastics pollution in estuarine sediments and fish, 2) the extent and magnitude of SVOC contamination in estuarine fish, and 3) whether fish preferentially ingested certain...

Over the past ten years, a huge amount of source-to-sink studies have aimed to unravel the tectonic, climatic and other processes that shape the landscape from mountains to the deep ocean. Interestingly, these studies have been mainly dedicated to siliciclastic or mixed systems, for which the connection between drainage basins, continental shelves, slope and basin environments are often well constrained. Here we present a study focusing on a source-to-sink study dedicated to a pure carbonate...
