Daguna Consulting, LLC provides scientific expertise on the conservation and management of endangered species inhabiting our freshwater ecosystems.

This summer, we relocated mussels from under the Ford Bridge in St. Paul, Minnesota prior to repairs and bank stabilization at the site.

In recent years, our work has focused on better understanding the status and population dynamics of the James spinymussel.  We have been partnering with VDGIF, Three Oaks Engineering, and James Madison University in Virginia.  

In 2016, we completed conservation plans for  state-listed mussels inhabiting the Virginia portion of the Upper Tennessee River Basin.

Current, ongoing projects in 2017:

  1. Occupancy study of listed speices in Copper Creek for the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries
  2. Relocation of mussel fauna in Mississippi River in Ramsey County, Minnesota
  3. Mussel survey and relocation at Petttibone Condos on the Wisconsin side of the Mississippi River
  4. Monitoring relocated mussels using Passive Integrated Transponder (PIT) tags and employing mark-recapture models to estimate survival.
  5. Cooperating with James Madison University to better understand population dynamics and detection of the federally endangered James spinymussel 
  6. Population monitoring of the federally endangered James spinymussel using mark-recapture methods and Progam Mark models.

Daguna Consulting plays an active role in our communites, supporting efforts to protect our natural resources and reduce our collective ecological footprint.
