The ceramic substrate (21cm in length, 6cm in width and 1.3cm in depth) was tested for the Limnoperna fortunei population, sampling at two localities in the Jacui delta (Jacui Canal (Canal do Jacui – CJ) and Port Docks (Cais do Porto – PO)) in Rio Grande do Sul state, Brazil. The individuals were quantified through the superimposition of a squared (1cm2) and segmented (sI, sII e sIII) sheet on the substrate. Using Kruskal-Wallis and Mann-Whitnney, the recruit and adult average densities were… Expand
