    Biology information. Mytilus edulis is one of the most extensively studied marine organisms. Therefore, this review is based on comprehensive reviews by Gosling (ed.) (a), Bayne, (b), Newell (), and Holt et al. (). Where appropriate the original source references in these reviews are given. Mytilus definition is - the type genus of Mytilidae comprising usually smooth-shelled marine mussels that live attached to solid objects chiefly in the intertidal zone and include the common edible mussel (M. edulis).

    Mytilus edulis has been harvested for centuries. Blue mussel shells have been found in kitchen middens dated at B.C. Until the 19 th century, blue mussels were harvested from wild beds in most European countries for food, fish bait and as a fertilizer. The initial step for mussel aquaculture was based upon storage and relaying fishery products. Dictionary entry overview: What does Mytilus edulis mean? • MYTILUS EDULIS (noun) The noun MYTILUS EDULIS has 1 sense. 1. a mussel with a dark shell that lives attached to rocks Familiarity information: MYTILUS EDULIS used as a noun is very rare.

The California mussel (Mytilus californianus) is a large edible mussel, a marine bivalve mollusk in the family Mytilidae. This species is native to the west coast of North America, occurring from northern Mexico to the Aleutian Islands of rnia mussels are found clustered together, often in very large aggregations, on rocks in the upper intertidal zone on the open coast, where Class: Bivalvia.

The blue mussel (Mytilus edulis), also known as the common mussel, is a medium-sized edible marine bivalve mollusc in the family Mytilidae, the mussels are subject to commercial use and intensive aquaculture.A species with a large range, empty shells are commonly found on beaches around the : Bivalvia.

californianus often dominates the lower intertidal zone on the open coast. The seastar Pisaster ochraceous is an important predator.

Identification The California mussels can grow up to 25 cm long, reaching full size in about three years. Its heavy and often eroded shell bears strong radial ribs running perpendicular to curved irregular growth lines; both are visible in this periostracum is bluish-black; the interior of the shell is bluish-grey, often with iridescent patches and margins.

The growth rate, mortality and production traits of mussels vary widely among different stocks of Mytilus edulis cultured in Europe and America (Pérez Camacho and Román, ; Dickie et al., ; Mallet and Carver, ; Kautsky et al., ).

edulis is the most wide-ly distributed species within the genus and has the ability to withstand a wide range of fluctuating envi-ronmental conditions (Seed and Richardson, and references therein). Mytilus. have been studied for centuries, and much is known of their physiol-ogy and ecology.

Like other intertidal organisms, these animals may serve as early indicators of climate change impacts. As structuring species, their survival has cascading impacts on many other species, making them eco.

The population structure and apparently erratic distribution patterns exhibited by M. edulis on many open exposed coasts, are discussed in the light of findings relating to the breeding and settlement of this species.

In the absence of previous literature concerning open coast mussels, the reproductive cycle has been described in some detail. These mussels do Cited by:   The intertidal mussels Mytilus edulis and M. californianus compete for space on the west coast of North America.

An analysis of differences in size, growth rate, age at first reproduction, life span, mode of reproduction, niche and habitats between these two species demonstrates that their life history strategies are different in several important ways.

Summary: This article discusses the relationships between Mytilus spp. It also discusses hybridization of. Changes in California mussel (Mytilus californianus) size through time have been a particularly important proxy for natural fluctuations and anthropogenic impacts on near shore intertidal communities on North America's Pacific Coast (Braje,Braje et al.,Braje et al.,Erlandson et al.,Jazwa et al.,Rick, ).Cited by: Linné, Description (shell): Shell solid, equivalve; inequilateral, beaks at the anterior end.

Shell approximately triangular in outline. Hinge line without teeth, but with 3 to 12 small crenulations under the umbones. External ligament much concealed, extending more than half-way from the beaks to the highest point of the shell.

Mytilus edulis, Mytilus trossulus and Mytilus galloprovincialis are sibling species which have distinct but overlapping distributions (see Gosling, b) and may hybridize in areas of overlap (Wonham, and references therein). In addition, M. edulis-like mussels occur in South America (McDonald et al., ).

M. trossulus occurs in the north Pacific. Mytilus californianus, o mexilhão californiano, é um bivalve marinho comestível da família Mytilidae.
