Argopecten irradians concentricus and Crassostrea virginica were exposed to several different levels of supersaturated seawater at temperatures ranging from 10 to 2!°C. Gas bubble trauma occurred at a total gas saturation level of 116%, causing mortality in juvenile A. i. concentricus and reduced growth in juvenile C. virginica.
