Summary:
Eastern oysters (Crassostrea virginica) and blue mussels (Mytilus edulis) were collected in the Gulf of St. Lawrence at the northernmost distribution area of C. virginica and maintained in cold water (0°C, 4°C or 9°C) over a 63-day period. Filtration rates were periodically determined in closed chambers initially inoculated with 10,000 phytoplankton cells mL⁻¹. For C. virginica, filtration at low temperatures was  Read more...

Abstract:

Eastern oysters (Crassostrea virginica) and blue mussels (Mytilus edulis) were collected in the Gulf of St. Lawrence at the northernmost distribution area of C. virginica and maintained in cold water (0°C, 4°C or 9°C) over a 63-day period. Filtration rates were periodically determined in closed chambers initially inoculated with 10,000 phytoplankton cells mL⁻¹. For C. virginica, filtration at low temperatures was clearly an exception: the percentage of the experimental population clearing the phytoplankton cells from the closed chambers declined from peak values of 50% at 9°C to null values (no animals filtering) at 0°C. For M. edulis, the percentage ranged from 100% at 9°C to 17% at 0°C. With respect to absolute filtration rates, C. virginica cleared significantly fewer particles than did M. edulis. Moreover, unlike M. edulis, C. virginica showed no adaptation to cold during the 63-day experiment. Together these results suggest that C. virginica is disadvantaged in terms of grazing on seasonal phytoplankton blooms, including toxic (domoic acid) blooms, which have historically occurred at low temperatures (<9°C) in eastern Canadian waters. We caution, however, that further experiments are required to ascertain how changes in food quality or availability may influence feeding behaviour of C. virginica at low temperatures.
