Hypoxia-induced predation refuge for northern quahogs (Mercenaria mercenaria) in a temperate estuary

Bryan Galligan, Yoel Stuart, M. Conor McManus & Heather Stoffel
Oxygen depletion in estuaries and coastal waters is often associated with reduced biodiversity, coastal dead zones, and the loss of important ecosystem services. However, some species can benefit from low oxygen conditions due to the indirect effects these conditions have on trophic relationships. In Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island, U.S.A., northern quahogs (Mercenaria mercenaria) reach their highest densities in the areas of the Bay most prone to oxygen depletion. One line of evidence suggests that suboxic...
