The effects of bioturbation by the Venus clam Cyclina sinensis on the fluxes of nutrients across the sediment–water interface in aquaculture ponds


A mesocosm experiment was conducted to study the effects of bioturbation by the marine bivalve Cyclina sinensis in an aquatic system and to examine how the bioactivities of this clam alter the rate at which nutrients are exchanged across the sediment–water interface. A dark incubation experiment was performed to determine the fluxes of inorganic nutrients… (More)
