Which do we prefer, global warming or dam building?
Boy, in Michigan we have a slightly different problem -- lakes and rivers around here are both depleted and clean (thanks to the infamous Zebra Mussle!) That has its own set of problems.
we so need freshwater octos to clean out the zebra mussles
Has anyone explored a commercial use for this mussel? As in chowder? We have many marine invasives in New Zealand and this year I've got 3 students looking at the role they play in food webs. I've a sneaking suspicion that they are extremely important in coastal food webs given the extent of anthropogenic impact, loss of diversity and associated weak links in food chains (leaving us with a few strong links .... a system liable to crash in the event we lose something else).
Zebra mussles are very small
like baby clam kinda small
would take a LOT of them to make chowder
