Two taxa in a third group, the nemertean genus Micrura and the polychaete family Spionidae
, were not affected positively or negatively by harvests either during or after harvest events.
(Annelida) from shallow waters around the British Islands: an identification guide for the NMBAQC Scheme with an overview of spionid morphology and biology.
(Polychaeta) from south-eastern Australia and adjacent areas with a revision of the genera.
Significant changes in the abundance of some families were detected, some increased their abundances: Spionidae
from 17% to 48%, Orbiniidae from 4% to 13%; other families decreased in terms of abundance and number of species: Lumbrinereidae from 11% to 1.
are the dominant polychaetes in the Laguna Madre grass beds near Pita Island (Hildebrand and King, 1979), and their larvae adapt well to the pond environment (Kindinger, 1980; Rubright et al.
polychaete Families Spionidae
and Orbiniidae), whereas others responded positively (e.
By contrast, the families commonly found in soft sediments, being less mobile and feeding mainly on sediments, such as the Maldanidae, Spionidae
or Ampharetidae, are scantily represented in the collections of the islands of the Mexican Pacific (Table 1).
Temporary effects of fishing were detected for the family Spionidae
(mainly comprising tube building, deposit-feeding species; Table 1).

Shell-boring polychaetes belong to the family Spionidae
Most abundant families were Spionidae
, Oweniidae, Cossuridae, and Ampharetidae, which accounted for 64% of the total polychaete fauna.
