Hurtado, MV Hurtado, MV; Sarabia, MM; Rubio, AO (2011). Megapitaria squalida (Bivalvia: Veneridae) fishery landings and temperature relationship in Bahia de la Paz, Mexico. REVISTA DE BIOLOGIA TROPICAL, 59(1), 151-157.

Abstract
Megapitaria squalida (Bivalvia: Veneridae) fishery landings and temperature relationship in Bahia de la Paz, Mexico. The clam Megapitaria squalida is a fishing resource with increasing importance in Northwestern Mexico. Nevertheless, this fishery has shown important variations that could be related to environmental factors. To assess this, monthly landings of M. squalida were analyzed during 2002-2005 for Bahia de La Paz, B.C.S., and were related with monthly time series of sea surface temperature, derived from MODIS-Aqua Sensor. The results showed a positive and significant relationship between sea surface temperature and clam landings. The likely impact of anomalous conditions of sea temperature on this resource is discussed Rev. Biol. Trop. 59 (1): 151-157. Epub 2011 March 01.
