Abstract In September 1988 a mussel bed, with a biomass of 1362 g ash-free dry weight· m −2 , was created in a concrete tank with a continuous supply of natural seawater. Measurements of particulate matter uptake by the mussel bed were carried out monthly from December 1988 till December 1989. Fluxes of suspended particulate matter, particulate organic carbon (POC), particulate organic nitrogen (PON), particulate organic phosphorus (POP) and chlorophyll- a , were significantly correlated with… CONTINUE READING
