Individuals of three mytilid species (Choromytilus meridionalis; Perna perna; Aulacomya ater ) from two sites characterised by different qualities of ration available to these suspension feeders showed different rates in some components of the physiological energy budget. These differences included higher feeding (= clearance) and respiration rates, but lower absorption efficiencies, in individuals from the site with the higher quality ration.
