larvae on algal and byssal
filament is enhanced by water agitation.
Qin and Buehler think the principle of the byssal
thread could be used to make surgical sutures that can withstand pulses and irregular liquid flows.
wightii and documented complete inhibition of byssal
thread production and attachment of brown mussel P.
The bay scallop larvae, when fully-developed and ready to set, cling to eelgrass blades or other objects with their foot and then form byssal
threads that set them onto the blades (Eckman, 1987).
Heterogeneity of the byssal
threads in Mytilus edulis L.
The oysters retain this attachment with several byssal
threads throughout their lives unless, while seed, they are torn free by fishermen.
Among abiotic factors documented to affect byssal
thread production by the epibyssate Mytilus edulis and endobyssate Geukensia demissa, is dissolved oxygen concentration.
One possible explanation for this is that both these polychaetes live in tubes which protrude above the sediment surface, and could thus be negatively impacted by the dense byssal
mats of M.
Unlike ear hanging, the NH method allows oysters to attach to wires naturally through their powerful byssal
threads, requiring no drilling of holes through shells or attaching oysters individually to dropper ropes, which is labor intensive and may cause considerable disturbance to oysters.
The effect of high-pressure spraying for tunicate control on byssal
thread characteristics in the cultured blue mussel (Mytilus edulis Linnaeus, 1758).
Socking was completed 48 h prior to deployment to allow for byssal
attachment to the socking material.
Efficacy of selected natural and synthetic novel organic compounds in prevention of zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) macrofouling by byssal
