Chris ButterchelAccording to an ecologist at the University of Waikato in Hamilton, similar mass destruction has been observed in recent years, among other things, in mussels. The common features of the cases are high temperature, lots of sunshine and very calm sea water for a prolonged period.
The combination of these factors leads to heat stress and the animals do not receive oxygen due to the calm water. Then one day they surrender to nature and practically cook alive

Marine Researcher, University of Auckland, Andrew Jeffs According to climate change, the mass mortality of mussels is likely to increase. According to the expert, as a result of the warming of the oysters, over time the clam populations will move to cold water.
