Missouri Mussels

Missouri Rive Mussels - USFWS
Ozarks Water Watch newsletter featured a great story about our Ozarks mussels, focusing on how they use lures to "catch" fish that will raise their young.  I can't improve on what Dave Casseletto has written so go just click on the story at this link.

Then for more details, an article in the recent MDC Conservationist magazine goes into greater depth on these fascinating and underrated creatures.  Read the story at this link.
