ABSTRAKT

Carotenoid content in mature gonads of cultivated Black Sea mussels (shell length 54−90 mm) demonstrated a strong seasonal variation and proved to be independent of sex, size, and age of mollusks and the degree of gonad maturation at the prespawning stage. The seasonal dynamics of carotenoid content in gonads correlated with that of phytoplankton abundance and biomass in the region of mussel cultivation.
