A review of current knowledge. A near doubling of the lugworm mortality in dredged areas was reported, resulting in a gradual substantial decline in the local population over a 4 year period (Fowler, 1999). Status in World Register of Marine Species Accepted name: Arenicola marina Lamarck, 1801. Netherlands Journal of Sea Research, 13, 487-502. This is when all the lugworms liberate their ova and sperms into the water above, and there the ova are fertilized. South East Wales Biodiversity Records Centre, 2018. These can rapidly increase its uptake of oxygen. Prouse, N.J. & Gordon, D.C., 1976. TFS Project T07006GL., Merlewood Research Station.

For example, on sandy shores near St Andrews and Dublin spawning occurred between mid October to mid November, peaking in early November, whereas at Fairlie Sans, Millport spawning occurred between Apr and May and again in autumn (Howie, 1959; Bentley & Pacey, 1992).

Suffolk Biodiversity Information Service., 2017. Ivermectin was found to produce a 10 day LC, Suchanek (1993) reviewed the effects of oil spills on marine invertebrates and concluded that, in general, on soft sediment habitats, infaunal polychaetes, bivalves and amphipods were particularly affected. Howard, S. & Little, D.I., 1987. Population parameters of the lugworm, Arenicola marina, living on tidal flats in the Dutch Wadden Sea. Once it burrows into the sand a lugworm seldom leaves it.

May be confused with Arenicola defodiens (the black lug) which is generally darker (usually black), longer (up to 270mm), burrows deeper (usually 40-70cm), rarely forms a 'blow hole', produces a finer, neater cast, prefers more exposed coasts rather than estuaries and differs in the number of annuli between the first 4 pairs of chaetae bearing segments and in the shape of the gills. (1993). Experiments have shown that benthic organisms (lugworms, Arenicola cristata, and fiddler crabs, Uca pugilator) that injested James River sediments with 0.250 ng Kepone/kg of sediment attained whole-body residues of 0.250 to 0.300 mg Kepone/kg of tissue within 21 days, Banner et al.

They also suggested an average annual mortality or 22%, an annual recruitment of 20% and reported that the abundance of the population had been stable for the previous 10 years. Pollution and marine life. 'Torrey Canyon'. Other species on the North American coast range from 3 to 12 in (7.6 to 30.5 cm). Digs a U or J-shaped burrow (20-40 cm deep) with characteristic depressions at the head end (the 'blow hole') and a cast of defaecated sediment at the tail end. The lugworm lies in this burrow with its head at the base of the head shaft, swallowing sand from time to time. Cofnod – North Wales Environmental Information Service, 2018.
