Oysters have become indicators of the level of ocean pollution
To learn how oysters react to hydrocarbon particles in sea water, a group of researchers from France placed them on one of the oldest research bases in Arcachon Bay in a separate aquarium of concrete blocks, plastic foam, old bicycle tires and even tennis balls.
To the twelve mollusks in the resulting reservoir, electrodes were added to measure the frequency with which oysters open and close the flaps, passing water through them. A sharp increase in the intensity of this process occurred when animals experienced stress caused by the addition of hydrocarbon to water. The higher the concentration, the more often the shells were opened and closed. The experiment was repeated in various areas, including the Barents Sea off the coast of Norway and Russia and the canals dug in the south-west of France
About the amazing ability of oysters to filter water has long been told by the American organization Florida Oceanographic, which is also interested in restoring the population of mollusks in the mouths of rivers.
