Studies on the bioaccumulation and effect of environmental stress on the green mussel, Perna viridis (Linnaeus, 1758).

  author={Rajat Varshney},
Environmental stress, particularly stress due to salinity variation and desiccation is encountered in mussel mariculture systems especially in the initial phase of stocking in the farms. The survivorship of mussel seed on conditioning and direct stocking in different salinities, under controlled conditions was studied. The LCso value for large (25 to 40 mm) and small size seed (10 to 25 mm) were estimated as 14 and 21 ppt respectively indicating the sturdiness of larger seed. The larger sized… CONTINUE READING
