In many estuarine and coastal ecosystems, bivalve suspension feeders, such as mussels, oysters, cockles and various species of clams, occur in high densities. They are often concentrated in beds. Bivalve filter-feeding mollusks are important components of coastal ecosystems because they remove large quantities of suspended material from the water and excrete abundant amounts of reactive nutrients. These animals are also major prey for numerous predators including birds, fish, mammals, and invertebrates; furthermore, they are significant food resources for humans.
