       海岸带环境承载力是海岸带可持续发展研究的重要内容,也是进行海岸带可持续发展评价的重要基础。
       近年来我国新一轮沿海区域发展战略不断上升为国家战略,海岸带环境系统压力趋大,以海岸带环境承载力评判断沿海地区发展的可持续性成为海岸带研究首要关注的问题.本研究在分析海岸带环境承载力基本内涵和特征的基础上,将海岸带生态服务功能纳入指标体系,构建了由产业、人口、经济、岸线、滩涂、主要水污染物、典型生态敏感区等七大要素指标层组成的海岸带环境承载力评价指标体系,该指标层能较好地反映未来产业发展的增长变量和海岸带环境系统关键限制因素的定量或半定量关系.并提出指标量化方法和综合承载力定量评价方法,对未来规划情景的海岸带环境承载状况进行评价,为国家海岸带发展战略的制定和实施提供科学的依据。

Abstract: Shellfish aquaculture production in the world, especially in China, has expanded rapidly in recent years. However, understanding of potential impacts of shellfish aquaculture on the trophic structure of ecosystem remains limited. Using an Ecopath with Ecosim model, we compared various shellfish aquaculture intensity scenarios to evaluate impacts of shellfish aquaculture on a semi-closed marine ecosystem, located in Jiaozhou Bay, China. This study showed that the Jiaozhou Bay ecosystem could be strongly impacted by the shellfish aquaculture as illustrated by the ecosystem indices such as total system throughout (TST), Finn's cycle index (FCI), and System omnivory index (SOI). The existence of shellfish aquaculture program led to shifts of major energy sources of Jiaozhou Bay ecosystem from detritus to phytoplankton. Contribution of phytoplankton to the ecosystem energy flow could drop from 75% to 46% if the current shellfish aquaculture program was removed. Intensive shellfish aquaculture could also improve the transfer efficiency of the ecosystem and simplify the food web. In addition, consumption of phytoplankton by cultured shellfish consisted of 90% of total phytoplankton consumption in this ecosystem, indicating that cultured shellfish could exert strong top-down control on phytoplankton in the Jiaozhou Bay ecosystem. Our results demonstrated that intensive cultured shellfish program shifted Jiaozhou Bay ecosystem from a natural-organism-dominated food web into an aquaculture dominated food web. Given these caveats, cultured shellfish is not only economically efficient, but also ecologically efficient. This study suggests that it is informative and necessary to conduct holistic and integrated ecosystem analyses to improve our understanding of potential impacts of shellfish aquaculture on the ecosystem dynamics.
