Abstract:

A mesocosm study was conducted at Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium Marine Center in Cocodrie, Louisiana, to examine how buried oil may affect predator-prey interactions between blue crabs (Callinectes sapidus) and periwinkle snails (Littoraria irrorata). Snail climbing behavior (cm), snail survival (%), and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs; µg/L) data are presented. The experiment was conducted three times between 2015 and 2016.

Purpose:

To determine how oil effects predator-prey interactions between two common marsh organisms.

The image file R4.x264.000-0086_Experimental_Design_sub2.jpg includes a diagram of one of the mesocosm tank. Mesocosm tanks were round plastic tubs, 41 cm in height and a diameter of 55 cm, with a total volume of 64 liters.|Mesocosm tanks were constructed out of round, plastic tubs. Tubs contained sand, sea water, Spartina, aerator, measuring stick, five snails, and oil and/or an adult blue crab depending upon experimental treatment. Unoiled and oiled tanks were kept separate between two environmental chambers to prevent contamination. Snail climbing behavior was monitored every 12 h over 96 h. At the end of 96 h, snail survival was determined. A water sample was collected at the end of the experiment for PAH analysis.
          
PAH extraction was performed using a modified EPA SW‌-846 methods 3510C: Separatory Funnel Liquid-Liquid extraction = procedure for isolating target alkanes and aromatics from aqueous samples with methylene chloride using a separatory funnel.|Water samples for PAH were analyzed on a nitrogen evaporator GC/MS.|The experiment was conducted three times between 2015 and 2016. No PAH data is reported for the 2015 experiment because that analysis was added to the experimental design after that experiment had already taken place. Additionally, PAH data are reported for only 4 of the 8 oil treatments due to funding constraints.||
