Abstract Results from the study have generally indicated the significant interactive effects of salinity and Chlorine-Produced Oxidants exposure in affecting oyster mortalities resulting from P. marinus infection. Comparisons of control oysters in high-and low-salinity exposures generally indicated that low-salinity conditions resulted in exposure of oysters to water which was reduced in both salt content (major ions) and phytoplankton density (as food availability was reduced by 66%). Biodeposition rates (or feeding rates) were significantly reduced in low-salinity-exposed oysters, probably related to less food availability.
