Bamber (1990)

The survival rate of large (~5 cm) mussels (Mytilus edulis) grown for 30 days under normal and reduced pH conditions was determined. Reduced pH values were obtained by the addition of Analar sulphuric acid to filtered sea water. Temperatures were maintained at 9.2C.

Percent survival of blue mussels (Mytilus edulis) exposed to a seawater pH range of 6.7 to 8.1 over a period of 44 days during which time the temperature rose from 17C at the start of the study to 24C at the end of the study. Lower pH values were obtained by mixing CO2 gas into the water. There were 50 mussels per treatment, with a mean length of 11 mm.
