Influence of Some Amphyphilic Substances and Mixtures on Marine Mollusks

The influence of some surface active substances on the filtration activity of marine Bivalvia was studied. It has been found that both anionic (sodium dodecylsulphate) and cationic (tetradecyltrimethylammonium bromide) surfactants inhibited the filtration activity of oysters (Crassostrea gigas). Some mixtures containing surface active substances also inhibited the filtration activity of C. gigas and Mytilus galloprovincialis. The obtained data correlate well with the results obtained previously. They suggest that some xenobiotics and pollutants inhibited the filtration activity of other species of marine and freshwater Bivalvia. This experimental approach is useful in evaluating the influence of surface active substances on marine ecosystems.
