Mussel Surveys in the Upper Hudson River

Mussel Surveys

Of the 315 miles that characterize New York’s Hudson River, only the lower 153 miles, comprising the Estuary has been studied in great detail in regard to mollusc communities.  Museum scientists are conducting detailed surveys in the Upper portions of the river to better characterize freshwater mussel and snail communities north of the dam at Troy, NY.
