5 22 2014 oyster bay repro

Oyster bay, WA

High mid 70s.

Participants Katie Jackson and Jake heare.

Tested for reproductive active today. Very bad news.

There has been a huge mortality event at oyster bay. Numbers for brooding, gaping, dead, and alive but not open are as follows.

Brood. 0
Gaping. 3
Dead 93
Alive 5

Brood 0
Gaping 2
Dead 68
Alive 4

Brood 0
Gaping 47
Dead  51
Alive. 9

Clearly dabob has survived whatever mortality event much better than north and south sounds populations. We will be sampling this site tomorrow to ensure fresh samples.
