In situ survival and growth of zebra mussels (Dreissena polymorpha) under chronic hypoxia in a stratified lake

  title={In situ survival and growth of zebra mussels (Dreissena polymorpha) under chronic hypoxia in a stratified lake},
  author={Neng H. Yu and David A. Culver},
Experiments and field surveys were conducted in Hargus Lake (Ohio, U.S.) to investigate the effect of lake stratification on the survival, growth and distribution of zebra mussels. During the lake stratification period, relatively stable temperature and dissolved oxygen (DO) gradients persisted across the water column, allowing us to examine the chronic effect of hypoxia on zebra mussels. Zebra mussels were incubated in cages and suspended at different depths in the water column at both pelagic… CONTINUE READING
