AbstractThe settlement of mussel was determined during a tidal cycle in an exposed rocky shore in the Ria de Vigo (north-western Spain) and 300 m away from it. In the exposed rocky shore, mussel settlement was recorded throughout the intertidal profile during the tidal cycle. Settlement was more abundant in the lower than in the upper intertidal zone. The size of settled mussels varied from 0.250 to 11 min. The largest mussels were found in the lower intertidal zone. Maximum densities were recorded during the high tide, and the minimum were recorded during the low tide. Three hundred meters away from the mussel bed, settlement occurred during the complete tidal cycle. A light increase in the number of settled mussels during high tide was recorded. Settlement was more abundant at 2- than at 5- and at 8-m depth. The size of settled mussels varied from 0.225 to 0.375 mm and was similar at all depths studied.
