In the present study, the growth of the Mediterranean mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis Lam., 1819 in the Black Sea on ropes has been studied. The result of a 18 month-trial showed that the mussels grew 72.84±0.74 mm in lenght. Temperature of seawater has been measured (minimum of 7ú°C in the month of February and maximum of 27.7°C in August). Salinity varied from 17.2 to 19.3.
