There has been an increasing interest in marine oysters order: Petridae in recent years because their numbers are declining in many parts of the world and also because they are used as monitors of pollution. The present study describes the microscopic structure of gills as viewed by light and electron microscopy in two locations selected in Alexandria coast, Eastern Harbor E.H. and El Asafra. The specimens in the E.H. represent the presence of extracellular mineralized granules.
