In fall 2014, we dove several reaches of New River flowing through Giles County, Virginia to assess mussel status near proposed VDGIF boat landing sites.

In recent years, our work has focused on better understanding the status and population dynamics of the James spinymussel.  We have been working with VDGIF and the Catena Group to develp and analyze a mark-recapture dataset that has information on thousands of tagged animals across 7 sites in Virginia.
