Abstract
    This preliminary investigation studied the effects of constant 35°C temperatures on the survival and well being of Crassostrea virginica. The basic parameters considered were: (1) fluctuations of chemical composition in tissues (2) seasonal condition (3) histology (4) parasitology, particularly Labyrinthomyxa marina, and (5) changes in reproductive activity. Substantial mortalities generally did not occur at constant temperatures of 35°C and approximately field salinities, but a variety of responses were observed including altered gametogenesis, glycogen decreases and tissue damage. The use of histology to delineate sublethal effects was an extremely valuable tool.
