Abstract

Surveillance of shipworm infestation at Gloucester Point, Va., began in 1958. Borer attack by Bankia gouldi occurred in July to early October each year until the passage of Agnes greatly reduced setting. Populations returned to near normal in 1975. Salinity was shown to vary with watershed rainfall.
