While mussels are valuable indicators of the health of waterways, there is little known of the status of mussels within the Massena/Akwesasne AOCís waterway. This study will address Degradation of Fish and Wildlife Populations and Degradation of Benthos BUIs. Background data will be compiled and sampling within AOC tributaries will be conducted for two years (2012 & 2013). Whole body tissue samples will be collected for select species (e.g., eastern elliptio) and analyzed for PCBs and compared to published values from other AOCs and background or reference areas. An interim report will be completed followed by a Freshwater Mussel Status Report.
