Latin Name: Dreissena polymorpha Conservation Status: Common
Distribution: Russia to North America  

Zebra Mussels have traversed our waterways attached to ocean liners, and in their ballast water. They are now considered a permanent resident in North American freshwater systems, as there are no natural predators to take care of them. The Zebra Mussel is quite small, and edible if from a clean body of water.
