Scientists are seeking the cause of mussel die-off across the nation

Scientists are seeking the cause of mussel die-off in Tennessee's Clinch River and across the nation. Scientific studies of the aquatic life in the Little Miami over the past 30 years, while showing similar declines in mussel population, have also shown a return of fish and macroinvertebrate populations to "exceptional" levels of health. "It is very important that we support the scientific research to identify the cause of mussel declines" notes LMC Executive Director Eric B. Partee, "before we start pointing fingers."
