growth and changes in shell microstructure (Auzoux-Bordenave et al., 2020). As suggested by previous studies, the exposure of adult molluscs to OA might also influence shell growth, calcifica-tion, and offspring survival (Parker et al., 2013). For example, the intertidal common limpet Patella vulgata exposed for a few days

The influence of simulated exploitation on Patella vulgata

The shell size at sex change (L 50: the size at which there is a 50:50 sex ratio) decreased in response to the exploitation treatments, as did the mean shell size of sexual stages. Size-depen-dent sex change was indicated by L 50 occurring at smaller sizes in treatments than controls, suggesting an earlier switch to females. Mean shell size of

Similar damage was found to occur naturally, presumably as a result of stones propelled by the sea during storms. Apex holes were usually fatal,

The occurrence of maximum metabolism in these limpets when food is most abundant suggests that seasonal changes in growth rate may affect their seasonal acclimation patterns.
