Abstract

Carbon dioxide has shown promise as a tool to control movements of invasive Asian carp but its effects on native freshwater biota have not been well studied. We evaluated lethal and sublethal responses of juvenile Fatmucket (Lampsilis siliquoidea) mussels to carbon dioxide at levels (43-269 mg/L, mean concentration) that bracket concentrations effective for deterring carp movement. The 28-d LC50 value (lethal concentration to 50% of the mussels) was 87.0 mg/L (95% confidence interval, CI 78.4-95.9) and at 16-d post-exposure was 76.0 mg/L (95% CI 62.9-90.3). A proportional hazards regression model predicted that juveniles could not survive CO2 concentrations >160 mg/L for more than 2 wk or >100 mg/L CO2 for more than 30 d. Mean shell growth was significantly lower for mussels that survived carbon dioxide treatments. Growth during the post-exposure period did not differ among treatments, indicating recovery of the mussels. Carbon dioxide also caused shell pitting and erosion. Behavioral effects of carbon dioxide included movement of mussels to the substrate surface and narcotization in the highest concentrations. Mussels in the 110 mg/L, mean CO2 treatment had the most movements in the first 3 d of exposure. If carbon dioxide is infused continuously as a fish deterrent, concentrations below 76 mg/L are recommended to prevent juvenile mussel mortality and shell damage. Mussels may survive and recover from brief exposure to higher concentrations. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 29 July 2016.
All research outputs
#4,094,457
of 8,154,593 outputs
Outputs from Environmental Toxicology & Chemistry
#1,682
of 2,724 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#130,109
of 257,950 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Environmental Toxicology & Chemistry
#33
of 71 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 8,154,593 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 47th percentile – i.e., 47% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,724 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.1. This one is in the 34th percentile – i.e., 34% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 257,950 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 45th percentile – i.e., 45% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 71 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 47th percentile – i.e., 47% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
