This study investigated effects of low levels of dissolved oxygen (D .O.) and low levels of D.O. in combination with hydrogen sulfide (H2S) on the larvae and adults of oysters Crassostra virginica and on adults of hard clams Mercenaria mercenaria. The purpose of this study was to investigate how low D.O. and low D. O. plus H2S, which might be associated with discharges from sewerage treatment plants, could adversely influence populations of molluscs .
