Mussel farms affect the biogeochemical conditions in the sediments underneath the farms due to organic enrichment by mussel biodeposits and by mussels falling of the long-lines.

In this study, we conducted a number of field and laboratory studies using the organic tolerant polychaete, Capitella sp., and the less tolerant but larger polychaete Hediste diversicolor.

The results showed that H. diversicolor may be a strong candidate for remediation of mussel farm sediments.
