Abstract

Under homogeneous salinity and temperature conditions and uniform daylight, the early larvae of the Pacific mussel Mytilus trossulus (blastulae and trochophores) accumulated in the uppermost layer of water column, while the late larvae tend to concentrate at the bottom. In a water column with a temperature or salinity gradient, the early larvae accumulated at the surface even when the salinity and temperature conditions were incompatible with their life activity. The distribution of the late larvae was different as they were able to leave water of unfavorable temperature and salinity and accumulate at the bottom.
