Characteristics of annual production based on various mass data (whole animal mass; shell mass; and wet, dry, and ash-free dry soft tissue mass), the P/B coefficient, and specific production were estimated for the bivalve mollusk Chamelea gallinasampled from 21 localities in the northwestern and eastern Black Sea. The annual production correlated with population biomass (r= 0.994) and mean individual mass (r= – 0.737), while the P/Bcoefficient depended mainly on mean individual mass (r= – 0.719). Estimates of the P/Bcoefficient in Ch. gallinafrom the Black Sea were smaller than those of other marine invertebrates found worldwide with the same energy equivalent. Multiple linear regression equations were calculated for empirical relationships of various characteristics of annual production to the population biomass and mean individual biomass of Ch. gallina.
