The effects of velocity and seston concentration on the exhalant siphon area, valve gape and filtration rate of the mussel Mytilus edulis
With the inhalant siphon facing into the flow, and with adequate seston levels, water velocity has a significant negative linear effect on mussel exhalant siphon area, but no significant effect onExpand

Assessing Benthic Impacts of Organic Enrichment from Marine Aquaculture
Benthic observations were carried out at 22 stations in the Western Isles region of the Bay of Fundy on the east coast of Canada to evaluate impacts at salmon aquaculture sites. Eleven sites wereExpand

Filtration rate of blue mussels as a function of flow velocity: preliminary experiments
Abstract The filtration rate of adult blue mussel Mytilus edulis L. was measured in flume flows ranging from 6–38 cm · s −1 at a constant seston concentration. At > 25 cm · s −1 , blue musselExpand

Seasonal Changes of Dissolved Oxygen and Plant Nutrients in Seawater near Salmonid Net Pens in the Macrotidal Bay of Fundy
Seasonal observations for tidal periods of 12 or 24 h in, or near, Bay of Fundy salmonid mariculture sites were made. Variables measured included dissolved oxygen, salinity, temperature, chlorophyllExpand

Polychlorinated Biphenyls: Metabolic Behavior of Pure Isomers in Pigeons, Rats, and Brook Trout
The metabolic behavior of pure mono-, di-, tetra-, and hexachlorobiphenyl isomers in pigeons, rats, and brook trout was investigated. Excreta from these animals were extracted and examined byExpand
