Pearl Mussels at the FBA have already released glochidia

Six out of seven mussel populations from the ARK project have already encysted our fish. Encystments have been observed in salmon, trout and arctic charr. The glochidia are now 70-80 microns in length, still a long way to go until they reach the sufficient size to drop off (400 microns in length).
