Hard shelled river mussel

 

Actions to be undertaken in the LIFE+ project

The passability of the Rehberggraben is being restored as part of the LIFE+ project. The obstruction makes it impossible for larvae-bearing host fish and the mussels themselves to move between the different sections of the stream. This obstruction represents a major hazard for the population. This must be seen as particularly urgent as this habitat is host to one of the ten largest and most vital hard shell river mussel populations in Bavaria.
