Abstract Lugworms, Arenicola marina (L.), were found almost everywhere on the tidal flats of the Dutch Wadden Sea. Mean biomass amounted to about 5 g·m −2 ash-free dry weight, mean numerical density to 17 per m 2 with only about one quarter of the animals being juveniles (about 1 1 2 year old). Numbers of adults and total lugworm biomass showed a maximum in a zone at 1 to 4 km from the coasts, about halfway between high- and low-water mark and at intermediate silt content of the sediment… CONTINUE READING
