The objectives of the project are:

  1. To determine the environmental characteristics of the area occupied by molluscs beds.
  2. In situ physiological study of the mussel: filtration rates, ingestion, respiration, excretion.
  3. Monthly follow up of mussel’s development (fixing periods, growth and mortality rates, and condition index).
