Bechmann et al. (2011)

Fertilization success of blue mussel (Mytilus edulis) grown under normal and reduced pH conditions 2 hours after fmaetes were mixed. Temperature was 10C and pH was altered by the addition of CO2.

Gazeau et al. (2010)

The hatching rate (proportion of embryos that developed to D-shape larvae) of blues mussel (Mytilus edulis) embryos was measured after 2 days. The embryos were grown in experimental tanks at a commercial hatchery at a constant temperature of ~16.6C.
