Seasonal variations in seston and in the growth rate of the iceland scallop chlamys islandica from balsfjord norway 70 degrees north



Seasonal variations in seston and in the growth rate of the iceland scallop chlamys islandica from balsfjord norway 70 degrees north



Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology 48(2): 195-204



The absorption efficiency of C. islandica (O. F. Mueller) decreases with increasing dilution of particulate organic matter (POM) by particulate inorganic matter (PIM); the scallop's pallial organs do not select POM in preference to PIM. Since PIM constitutes a large but varying fraction of the seston, absorption efficiency would alter in the course of the year and contribute to a variation in growth rate. Seasonal changes in the relative concentrations of POM and PIM in seston can explain the seasonal pattern of growth of C. islandica in the Balsfjord.
