Dr. Scott Morello contributed to an online article concerning the “sudden” disappearance of blue mussels along the shores of the Gulf of Maine.  Dr. Morello and Dr. Phil Yund, DEI’s Senior Scientist, have been working on an NSF-funded research project to determine the source of juvenile mussels at selected sites along the Maine and New England coast.  The online article that you can link to here indicates that at one point, nearly 2/3rds of the intertidal zone was covered with mussels, but that has dropped to 15% in the past few years.
