Marine Night in Svalbardposten

As part of the Marine Night project, we are preparing for the UiT PhD student that will start working in January 2014 within Unit 3. The main aim of this work will be related to the distribution of blue mussels on Svalbard. The last year we had blue mussels on both the Kongsfjorden and Rijpfjorden moorings - both were successfully recovered and all mussels survived. The fact that they all survived, has two important implications. First of all, we are now able to study growth and development from three independent 'populations': wild natural in Kongsfjorden and two from the moorings in Kongsfjorden and Rijpfjorden. Secondly, and equally important, is the fact that the mussels survived the winter conditions in Rijpfjorden with -1.8C over a period for at least five months. This implies at least that temperature is not the regulating survival, and hence that other factors are limiting their northward distribution.
