  author={Matthias Brenner and Christine Buchholz and Olaf Peter Heemken and Bela Hieronymus Buck and Angela Koehler},
  journal={Aquaculture International},
The health of cultivated blue mussels from an offshore and a nearshore sites was compared by assessing lysosomal membrane stability (LMS) and accumulations of lipofuscin and neutral lipids in the digestive glands. In addition, the condition index, parasite infestation rates, growth performance and energy status of the mussels were assessed during 10 months of sampling. Abiotic and biotic site characteristics were investigated by water analysis for each sampling cycle. Further, data of… CONTINUE READING
