 Model to represent oyster individual growth by simulating feeding and metabolism. Model (i) partitions metabolic costs into feeding and fasting catabolism; (ii) adds allometry to clearance rate; (iii) adds temperature dependence to clearance rate; (iv) illustrates how coupled model requires a substantial volume of water (a single oyster typically clears 20-30 m3 of water in one growth cycle)
