Abundance and Population Structure of the Blacklip Pearl Oyster, Pinctada margaritifera l. 1758 (Bivalvia: Pteriidae), in Coastal Kenya OceanDocs
Kimani, E.N.; Mavuti, K.M..
Pearl oysters are an important marine resource within the Indo-Pacific oceans. They are widely cultured for the production of black pearls, their flesh is eaten, and their shell, known as mother-of-pearl (MOP) is used in the ornament and button industry. The blacklip pearl oyster, Pinctada argaritifera L., has been harvested from East Africa for MOP for decades. A survey within nearshore habitats in Kenya showed that Pinctada margaritifera is widely distributed in shallow lagoons, bays and channels. Other oyster species found during the survey were the wing oyster, Pteria penguin, occurring in deep channels in Shimoni and Mombasa, and Pt. chinensis, within lagoons and channels in Malindi, Mombasa and Shimoni. Pinctada margaritifera was most abundant in...

Coral Reef Resources of East Africa: Kenya, Tanzania and the Seychelles OceanDocs
Kimani, E.N..
Coral reefs are a prominent feature of the East African coastline and associated islands. The Kenya-Tanzania coastline stretches from 1°30'S, at the Somali border to approximately 10°S at the Mozambique border. The Seychelle Islands extend from 5°S to 10°S and 45°E to 56°E (Fig. 1). The climate along the East African coast is dominated by seasonal monsoon winds (northeast monsoon from No-vember to February and southeast monsoon from March to October) and the equatorial currents dictated by the intertropical convergence zone. The narrow East African continental shelf supports fringing and patch reefs which lie 0.5 to 2 km offshore. General profiles of East African coasts are given in Table 1. Gaps in the reefs occur near river mouths notably Tana, Athi and...
