In order to assess the carrying capacity of two Mediterranean areas, the Incze et al. model and its modification were applied. Our measures were carried out in the Gulf of Gaeta (Central MED), where mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis) are intensiv...

Introduced Pacific oysters (Crassostrea gigas) have shown rapid expansion in the Oosterschelde estuary, while stocks of native bivalves declined slightly or remained stable. This indicates that they might have an advantage over native bivalve filt...

Predation by the suspension-feeding infaunal bivalve Cerastoderma edule on settling C. edule larvae was studied in a flume boundary-layer flow. The density of settled larvae was reduced by 33% in an area of 5 cm-2 enclosing individual adults. Mean...

Using radiotracer (14C) and microscopic observation, we demonstrated that mussels (Mytilus edulis and Perna viridis) could be predators of mesozooplankton (rotifer Brachionus plicatilis). At radio-labelled rotifer densities of 0.1, 0.2, 0.5, 1.0 i...
