Note(s): The filtration rate of the rough tunicate Styela plicata was determined as an aid for potential use as a bioremediator of algae and bacteria contamination in estuarine waters. Filtration rates were calculated hourly over a period of six hours for tunicates (16.8 to 57.8 grams) exposed to two targeted concentrations of the microalgae Nannochloropsis sp. (n = 7 per treatment) and the bacteria Escherichia coli (n = 6 per treatment).
