Bioenergetic responses in green lipped mussels (Perna viridis) as indicators of pollution stress in Xiamen coastal waters, China.
Mar Pollut Bull. 2005; 51(8-12):738-43.MP

Abstract

Samples of green lipped mussels (Perna viridis) were collected from three sites (Huoshao, I'Maluan and Tong'an) around Xiamen coastal waters, where levels of various trace organic pollutants have been studied. Samples were also collected at a "cleaner" reference site near Dongshan Island for comparison. Clearance rate, absorption efficiency and oxygen consumption of the mussels were measured under controlled laboratory condition; organic pollutants in their tissues were also analyzed. Scope for growth (SFG) was employed as a general biomarker to evaluate the stress of pollutants. Specimens from Tong'an site had the lowest SFG values (1.14 J/h/g); while specimens from the I'Maluan site and Huoshao site had SFG values of 5.01 and 6.72 J/h/g, respectively. Specimens from Dongshan (reference site) had a relatively high SFG value of 10.96 J/h/g. There was a significant negative correlation between the SFG of the different populations of green lipped mussels and the concentration of DDT in their tissues.
