The data consist of levels of organic pollutants found in the blue mussels (Mytelus trossulus) samples from 44 sites along the Aleutian archipelago and in Cross Sound in southeast Alaska. For each site, the percent lipid, percent water and the sum of the target organic compounds are reported. The compounds are PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls), DDTs (dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethanes), HCHs (hexachlorocyclohexanes), chlordane, and HCB (hexachlorocyclobenzene).
In Texas, the USFWS is currently reviewing 11 mussel species for ESA protection and several of these species (e.g., Cyclonaias petrina, Texas Pimpleback, and Lampsilis bracteata, Texas Fatmucket) have been the primary focus of controlled propagation by several federal hatcheries. To date, information on genetic diversity within and across known populations for these species is incomplete and so the justification for their controlled propagation is unclear, and a genetic management plan to guide propagation activities does not exist. These unknowns raise serious questions about whether any of the 11 proposed species are truly in need of and would benefit from controlled propagation. The overall goal of this project...
