In addition, our study demonstrated that the horizontal distributions of these species are distinct: Lagadon rhomboides and Micropogonias undulatus were members of the inner-shelf assemblage and Leiostomus xanthurus, Myrophis punctatus, and Brevoortia tyrannus were members of the mid-shelf assemblage.

Because our strains were isolated from healthy larvae and reproductive clams and oysters and their culture water, experimental infections were carried out in Venerupis rhomboides to confirm their pathogenic potential.
Therefore mortalities of clams caused by this species were not confirmed and low susceptibility of Venerupis rhomboides to V.
