Effect of salinity and burial on metabolites in Mya arenaria


Bioturbators (such as bivalves, worms, polychaetes), living in a coastal area, experiences frequent changes in salinity. They are often exposed to mechanical disturbances (like wave, currents, storms) forcing them to bury deeper into the sediment to get a better foothold. In nature, these stressors often occurs simultaneously. Osmotic stress negatively affects the burial activity and the physiological performances of soft shell clam, Mya arenaria; however, the mechanism behind this is still unknown. In this dataset we present the combined effect of osmotic stress and repeated burrowing on the concentration on different amino acids and short chain organic acids in the whole body tissue of Mya arenaria.
