Long-term acclimation of Mytilus californianus to 60% artificial sea water (585 mosmol l-1; ASW) led to a 30-40% decrease in the taurine (53.5-36.9 mumol g-1 wet mass) and betaine (44.8-26.2 mumol g-1 wet mass) content of gill tissue, compared with that of control animals held in 100% ASW (980 mosmol l-1). The K+ content of gills did not change following long-term acclimation to reduced salinity. In contrast, losses of all three solutes during a brief (60 min) exposure to 60% ASW were less than… CONTINUE READING
