Abstract
    The effect of sublethal concentrations of hexadecane, decaline, isopropylbenzene, n-decane and cyclohexane on the growth of Mytilus edulis larvae was investigated. Except in the case of decaline, a certain stimulation of the growth was observed, especially at the higher concentrations.
