||In order to complete the knowledge of seasonal variability of ecophysiological parameters, in situ experiment was conducted in May 1992 at the sampling site "Le Chapus". As in the previous experiments (May '91, October '91 and February '92), the race-way technique was used to study ecophysiological behavior of oyster and mussel populations submitted to natural variability.
