Benthic foraminifera at a scallop aquaculture site in Minonosok Bay, the sea of Japan

Benthic foraminifera at a scallop aquaculture site in Minonosok Bay, the sea of Japan The species composition and distribution of benthic foraminifera at a scallop aquaculture site in shallow Minonosok Bay (southern Primorye) were studied. Ninety-three species of benthic foraminifera were found in Minonosok Bay in 1998 and 83 species in 2000; representatives of the families Elphidiidae, Discorbidae, Trochamminidae, and Ataxophragmiidae dominated. In 1998, the calcareous species Cribroelphidium frigidum was most abundant; in 2000, calcareous Protelphidium asterotuberculatum and arenaceous species Trochammina inflata and Eggerella advena were dominant. The effect of scallop cultivation on the distribution of benthic foraminifera was local. The species composition and population density of foraminifera directly under scallop cages were decreased, compared to areas of the bay where there were no mariculture operations.
