OA effects on mussel attachment strength Impacts of Ocean Acidification on Wild and Farmed Mussels in Puget Sound This project will expand on ocean acidification and temperature research relating to local mussel species to test for causes of seasonal weakening of mussel attachment.

Puget Soundkeeper is looking for adventurous volunteers ready to spend an evening retrieving mussel cages around Puget Sound. Mussel Watch is a regional study coordinated by the Department of Fish and Wildlife that utilizes mussels to monitor water quality.

In October, teams of volunteers throughout Puget Sound installed cages of mussels at a late night. Because the Mediterranean Blue Mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis has been imported into Puget Sound for aquaculture, the present population of the region comprises both of these species.

There are no ecological or genetic barriers against hybridization, so hybrids are frequent throughout the region. Activities and Societies: Headed SeaGrant funded research project for mussel aquaculture baseline study throughout Puget Sound Basin.

Looking to find a replacement for the struggling Olympia oyster industry, in the s, the Washington aquaculture industry began experimenting with the Japanese Pacific oyster and found that it was.

At the present time, Penn Cove Shellfish grows and harvests over two million pounds of mussels per year from our two farms located in Penn Cove and in Quilcene Bay, both located in the northern Puget Sound. the status and trends of the Puget Sound food web. Contamination of nearshore biota, especially from terrestrial sources including stormwater has long been a gap in toxics monitoring in Puget Sound.

The current /13 Mussel Watch Phase 2 study (Mussel Watch Pilot Expansion) represents the. In this study we used native mussels (Mytilus trossulus) as indicators of the degree of contamination of nearshore habitats.

We transplanted relatively uncontaminated mussels from a local aquaculture source to over 70 locations along the Puget Sound shoreline, covering a broad range of upland land-use types from rural to highly urban. The Puget Sound Fact Book brings together statistics and other information about the health and makeup of the Puget Sound ecosystem.

Areas of focus include climate change, geography, water quality, habitats, human dimensions and regional species. COVID Resources.

Caged Mussel Design Mytilus trossulus (Pacific blue mussel) • Penn Cove Shellfish aquaculture farm Age – 11 month old adults • Standard shell length 50 - 60 mm (~2 inches) Mussels bagged in polyethylene mesh netting • 16 mussels per bag • Hung at aquaculture farm for 10 days (reattach).

The mussels were part of the state’s Puget Sound Mussel Monitoring Program. Every two years, scientists at the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) transplant uncontaminated mussels from an aquaculture source on Whidbey Island to various locations in Puget Sound to study pollution levels.

BANGS ISLAND MUSSELS are hand-raised locally in the cool, clean waters of Casco Bay, Maine. Since our mussels have been cultivated in complete harmony with their environment. by the bioMérieux Connection Editors As “filter feeders,” mussels provide a great method for detecting pollutants in waterways.

If it’s there, mussels will ingest it. With this in mind, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) started the Puget Sound Mussel Monitoring Program: every two years, the WDFW transplants uncontaminated mussels from aquaculture facilities to.

Scientists used cages to transplant clean mussels from an aquaculture source on Whidbey Island to 18 urbanized locations around Puget Sound.

We have learned the future Puget Sound wide plan of the aquaculture industry is to use suspension aquaculture (rafts) to grow not only mussels but all other forms of shellfish - clams, oysters, scallops, sea urchins, etc.
