Field monitoring of calcification rates of Mytilus mussels in 2016-2017, South-West Baltic Sea


This data set presents data from field monitoring of calcification rates across 15 months from 3 sites in the South-West Baltic Sea (Kiel fjord, Ahrenshoop and Usedom Island). 50 mussels were sampled from settlement structures at each location at 2 - 3 monthly intervals and shell length/mass were recorded over time to estimate calcification rates in the field related to environmental conditions.
