Abstract:

Measurements of the growth rates of two species of sea mussel, Mytilus californianus and Mytilus edulis, were made in Monterey Harbor during the period August 1, 1970 to August 1, 1971. Mussel populations were housed in plexiglass-stainless steel cages and exposed to intertidal and subtidal conditions. Measurements of maximum length and average volume were taken at monthly intervals throughout the annual period. Author
