Samenvatting

The combined effect of reduced salinity and food quantity on mussel Mytilus edulis shell growth was examined in two multi-factorial experiments. Maximum salinity, maximum food quantity and other environmental variables, like temperature and food quality, fluctuated in the field-laboratory in the same way as that of the seawater outside. Both experiments yielded significant, but opposite food-salinity interaction effects. In the second experiment salinity effect was most apparent at low food levels. whereas in the first experiment intermediate food levels showed the highest salinity effect.
