The fluffy sea anemone metridium senile in periodically oxygen depleted surroundings

, : The fluffy sea anemone metridium senile in periodically oxygen depleted surroundings. Marine Biology (Berlin) 81(1): 81-86

In scuba-diving monitored field experiments (Flensburg Fjord, 15 m, 1981) and parallel aquarium tests, the behavior of M. senile under anoxic conditions and its O2-deficiency resistance were studied. When O2 is lacking the fluffy sea anemone diminishes body surface, and then, successively, shuts off most energy consuming activities. By means of this strategy, 50% of the tested individuals survived 3 wk of total anoxia.
