to the literature, these are some of the conditions where green mussels live
in their native range. The temperature is 26-32 C. The LC50 is 10 and 36 C after 2 weeks
exposure (50-96). Salinity is 27-33
ppt but can tolerate 20 ppt for short durations. Marc Blouin has documented
even lower salinity measurements where green mussel exist in the Alafia
River. The temperature and salinity tolerances vary somewhat in the
literature. I do not know how many
eggs are produced.
