Comparison between the Nereis diversicolor and Nereis virens marine worms in the transformation of ingested hydrocarbons

  • F. Gilbert (a1), G. Desrosiers (a2), S. Hulth (a3) and G. Stora (a1)

 A feeding experiment was conducted on the marine worm Nereis diversicolor to compare the fate of a hydrocarbon mixture during the gut passage in this species with the hydrocarbon breakdown process demonstrated for Nereis virens. Hydrocarbon dissolution/solubilization processes in the gut of N. diversicolor were found to have similar qualitative and quantitative importance in the hydrocarbon transformation as those observed in N. virens.
