Abstract

The rate of removal of different microalgal cells in suspension at specific time interval in respect of six species differing in sizes such as Tetraselmis sp, Cheatoceros sp, Chlorella sp, Dicrataria sp., Isochrys sp, Chromulina sp, by Crassostrea madrasensis has been studied. The study revealed that often exhibit a signifiant degree of selectivity in the rate of filtration of certain algae. Further it is recorded that the filtration rate is not uniform throughout the experimental period of 24 hours. Oysters showed periods of high filtering activity and periods of relative quiescence.
