l. Results of a study on lethal and sublethal responses of different size groups of the tropical brown mussel, Perna indica, when exposed to different temperatures are presented. 2. Exposure to a temperature of 38°C showed 100% mortality of 9 mm size group mussels in 120 min. 3. Mortality was dependent on age (size) of the mussels, young ones being more susceptible than older ones. 4. All size groups showed a progressive reduction in physiological activities such as filtration rate, foot… CONTINUE READING
