Mytilus edulis beds on reduced salinity tide-swept infralittoral rock
|Within Vocab||Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland Version 97.06|
|Definition||This biotope is reported to occur in shallow tide-swept conditions and also in reduced salinity tide-swept conditions (may be 2 biotopes?). Some descriptions indicate a wide variety of epifaunal colonisers on the mussel valves, including seaweeds, hydroids and bryozoans. Predatory starfish Asterias rubens also occur in this biotope. This biotope generally appears to lack large kelp plants, although transitional examples containing mussels and kelps plants may also occur. [Further data and analysis required for this biotope]|
