Summary

Carbon dioxide has shown promise as a tool to control movements of invasive Asian carps. We evaluated lethal and sublethal responses of juvenile fat mucket (Lampsilis siliquoidea) mussels to carbon dioxide concentrations (43–269 mg/L, mean concentration) that are effective for deterring carp movement. The 28-d LC50 value (lethal concentration to 50% of the mussels) was 87.0 mg/L (95% confidence interval, CI 78.4–95.9) and at 16-d post-exposure was 76.0 mg/L (95% CI 62.9–90.3). A proportional hazards regression model predicted that juveniles could not survive CO2 concentrations >160 mg/L for more than 2 weeks or >100 mg/L CO2 for more than 30 days. Mean daily shell growth was significantly lower for mussels that survived carbon dioxide [...]

Purpose

The data summarize the effects of carbon dioxide infusion for 28-d on the survival, shell growth and integrity and behavior of juvenile freshwater mussels. The project will be used to determine the risk to native mussels of using carbon dioxide as a tool to control Asian carp movements.
