The allozyme variability for 15 loci in two samples of the Pacific mussel Mytilus trossulus collected from a single giant cluster was investigated using the method of gel electrophoresis. One sample was subjected to short-term anaerobic stress and then to a longer aerobic stress, leading to the death of about 85% of the individuals. At some of the loci, significant differences in the genotypic and allele frequencies were found between the samples. The results are suggestive of the differential survival of mussels with different genotypes and alleles at some of the surveyed loci under stress. Our data are in agreement with the hypothesis of the adaptive significance of allozyme polymorphism.
