Recruitment and abundance of the blue mussel (Mytilus edulis) along the shore of the St. Lawrence maritime estuary

Abundance data (biomass and density) of populations of blue mussel (Mytilus spp.) in the mid-littoral zone from 2007 to 2010. The biomass data (after drying by sponging) come from 6 quadrats (0.0225 m2) at each of 29 sites visited during the summer on the south shore of the St. Lawrence lower estuary.

Mussel recruitment data (number of recruits/collectors) on artificial Tuffy-type collectors (S.O.S. Tuffy Pad) spaced 1-100 m and exposed for 2 months (mid-July to mid-September) in the low-lying mediolittoral zone. The data represent the number of individuals per collector (8 collectors per site) associated with 29 sites in the St. Lawrence lower estuary from 2003 to 2010.
