Reproduction and growth in the tropical mussel perna viridis bivalvia mytilidae



Reproduction and growth in the tropical mussel perna viridis bivalvia mytilidae



Kalikasan 11(1): 83-97



The green mussel P. viridis was introduced into an area and its reproductive cycle was studied for a 2-yr period. Spawning occurred year-round but was without consistent repetitive peaks. Breeding was asynchronous between sexes and among individuals, with < 50% of the population usually actively involved in sprawing at any 1 time. Growth rates varied from 0.5 to 1.0 cm/mo., with a mean of 0.88 for individuals less than 7 cm in length. Every 1.0-cm increase in length corresponded to a 0.75- and 0.32-cm increase in length corresponded to a 0.75- and 0.32-cm increase in height and width, respectively. The size (length) at which spawning started was 2.0 was 2.0 cm for males and 2.4 cm for females.
