Other annelids also presented more than one family of oxygen-binding protein: for example, some species of Terebellidae, Opheliidae, and Sipuncula (Bailly et al., 2008; Liu et al., 2013).
Abundance of the amphipod Americorphium salmonis (chi square = 174.23, df = 2, P < 0.001) and polychaete Family Hesionidae (chi square = 341.18, df = 2, P< 0.001) were reduced by the presence of aquaculture gear but recovered after gear was removed, and the cumacean Cumella vulgaris (chi square = 199.16, df = 2, P< 0.001) and polychaete Families Glyceridae (chi square = 94.75, df = 2, P< 0.001) and Opheliidae (chi square = 105.31, df = 2, P < 0.001) increased during the postgear phase in culture plots relative to reference areas.
