    Ohio River Endangered Mussels

    Unknown to most people, the Ohio River is home to numerous species of freshwater mussels. Being little known does not mean that they are of little importance to our overall ecosystem. Freshwater mussels are not only an important food source for muskrats, waterfowl and fish but they can filter several gallons of water a day making them an important indicator of water quality.
