In Quebec, mussel aquaculture is expanding rapidly and is being developed in areas where lobster is present and where lobster larvae are likely to be found. Lobster fishermen are concerned that mussel aquaculture could pose a threat to lobster larvae. They believe that cultured mussels may ingest or otherwise kill lobster larvae. The objective of this study was to evaluate the potential of cultured mussels (Mytilus edulis) to ingest stage I lobster (Homarus americanus) larvae and, if this does occur, determine whether this ingestion kills or other wise harms the larvae.
