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.

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).
