(1) The whelk-enclosure experiment demonstrated that the predatory whelk affected not only survivorship but also growth rate of the clam.(2) Overall, mussels, barnacles and whelks all had higher metabolic activities at SH than BB, whereas there was no difference in metabolic activity for sea stars.(3) These results were obtained from experiments in the lower mid zone at each site and exposure, in which shelter and food availability (mussels, M. trossulus) for the whelks were manipulated.(4) Luckily there is a produce stall just a few steps further, where you get a few handfuls of wild roquette, sensing that the arugula's peppery bite will work wonders with the plump whelks .(5) So the 10m ropes provide an ideal home where they can remain suspended above the seabed and out of reach of starfish, crabs, whelks and other predators.(6) Zach found that crows would only accept ├ö├ç├┐large├ö├ç├û whelks, where large whelks had an average weight of 8.08 grams.(7) The shellfish, especially the oysters and the whelks are just the best.(8) People forget that Glasgow is by the sea, but I love restaurants that make something of that closeness, bringing mussels and whelks and Firth of Clyde-reared cod onto the menu.(9) Only the hermit crab, as far as I can recall, searches for empty shells, of whelks or periwinkles, or indeed any other hollow object and crawls inside, to serve as shelter and protection of the body.(10) For main, if your feeling decadent, why not go for the lobster platter; langoustines, mussels, whelks , oysters all surround the halved lobster on a bed of ice.(11) Most of the shellfish remains in the Florida coast middens were oyster shells while shells of clams, knobbed whelks and periwinkles were present in lesser amounts.(12) It is a fantastic place, with extremely tasty whelks .(13) Our examples are taken from recent investigations of two key components of rocky intertidal communities, mussels and whelks .(14) Shellfish such as oysters, mussels, cockles, winkles, whelks and crabs were collected for food from the estuaries and sea-shores.(15) Think of molluscs and chances are it is shellfish such as limpets, whelks , scallops and mussels that spring to mind.(16) Predatory snails, including Oyster Drills, whelks , sponges, especially the Boring Sponges, and fish all find oysters a tasty treat.
