Abstract

The effects of increased biodeposition within mussel (Mytilus edulis) farms on the benthic environment were investigated using surface sediment samples collected from 11 coastal embayments in Prince Edward Island (PEI), Canada. The degree of organic enrichment, determined using geochemical indicators (total free sulfides (S), redox potentials (EhNHE), water content (WC) and organic matter (OM)), was significantly greater in mussel leases compared to reference sites located both outside lease boundaries and in inlets not used to culture mussel (MANOVA, p
