Puget Sound Mussel Monitoring – Long-term Active Biological Monitoring of Nearshore Contaminants

Presenter: Jennifer Lanksbury, Wildlife Biologist, WDFW

Mussels (Mytilus edulis) are highly efficient filter feeders which means toxic contaminants entering the nearshore environment show up in their tissues. Hear more about how these shellfish are being monitored through the collaborative efforts of conservation organizations, citizen science volunteers and government partners – and what we’re learning from the results!
