The Mediterranean mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis (Bivalvia, Mytilidae) was long-line cultured in two different areas of the Calich lagoon (NW Sardinia, Italy). Several physical and chemical water parameters, chlorophyll a and sedimentation rate were measured in the two culture stations and in a third considered as a control. Mussel growth rate was similar in the two stations. It was positively affected by the increase of water temperature and chlorophyll a concentration and negatively by oxygen depletion.
