Abstract

The objectives of our fish and bivalve study are: 1. Determine changes in the number of species of fish and bivalves before Phase I and during Phase 1 at Bolsa Chica Marsh. 2. Determine if California Department of Fish and Game's predicted benefits in Phase I were achieved by increases in fish species. 3. Determine influences of water management practices upon fish and bivalve composition. Thirteen species of fish and five species of bivalves were collected from Inner Bolsa Bay and South Bolsa Slough. Deepbody anchovy, Anchoa compressa; jacksmelt, Atherinopsis californiensis; longjaw mudsucker, Gillichthys mirabilis; specklefin midshipman, Porichthys myriaster; round stingray, Urolophus halleri; banded chione, Chione californiensis; bentnose clam, Macoma nasuta; and common littleneck clam, Protothaca staminea have not been reported previously from Inner Bolsa Bay. Nine species of fish and four species of bivalves were collected from outer Bolsa Bay. Yellowfin goby, Acanthogobius flavimanus; longjaw mudsucker; tilapia, Tilapia mossambica; and bay pipefish, Syngnathus leptorhynchus have not been reported previously from Outer Bolsa Bay. (11pp.)
