Growth and Productivity of Dreissena under Conditions of Artificial Streams

Institute of Hydrobiology, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Kiev, Ukraine


The process of growth and productivity of zebra mussels in the canals of southern Ukraine was studied. The following dependence of body mass (W, g) on the sizes of the mollusks (L, cm) is established: W = (0.00022±0.0009)L2.73±0.14. The growth constant (k) in the canals is 0.62 year−1, P/B coefficient changes within the limits 3.30−3.48. Growth indices of dreissena are directly related to the sum of effective temperature in a concrete body of water and depend on providing with nutritious seston.
