Ostroumov S.A., Widdows J. Inhibition of mussel suspension feeding by surfactants of three classes.

HYDROBIOLOGIA, 2006, Volume: 556, Pages: 381-386. The first paper that reports experiments that showed that all three main kinds of synthetic surfactants (detergent chemicals) slow down the filtration of water by marine organisms, filter-feeders (the bivalve mussels of Atlantic Ocean, the Latin name Mytilus edulis). The 3 main types of surfactants that were studied were representatives of the 3 classes: anionic, cationic, and non-ionic surfactants. The word ‘surfactants’ means the same as ‘surface-active substances’ and ‘surfaceactive agents’. In Web of Science: Title: Inhibition of mussel suspension feeding by surfactants of three classes.
