The shallow water shrimp Palaemon adspersus was exposed to 200, 100 and 0 ppb WSF of crude oil for 14 days after which the oxygen consumption rate was measured in a closed chamber with an electrode. Previous work has shown a changed oxygen consumption rate in animals exposed to WSF in concentrations 100 to 1000 times the concentrations used in the present experiments. The oxygen consumption rate was also significantly increased by the low concentrations used in the present work. Although the oxygen consumption rate was significantly increased, as an effect of WSF-pollution, the method is very time-consuming.
