Respiration, ammonia and phosphate excretion experiments were performed with planula larvae ofAurelia aurita (Scyphozoa) from Kiel Fjord, Baltic Sea, in summer 1983. The mean respiration measured was 3.22 nl O2 ind−1 h−1 (at ∼ 20 °C). Excretion experiments revealed average values of 11.41 pM NH4-N ind−1, and 0.92 pM PO4-P ind−1h−1, respectively. The atomic C:N:P ratio of excretion products was 133:10:1. The O:N ratio of 25:1 and O:P ratio of 313:1 point to a lipid-carbohydrate-oriented… CONTINUE READING
