ABSTRACT: Early detection and rapid response plans (EDRRP) are important components of dreissenid control efforts that focus on containment and eradication of a newly identified dreissenid population. A review of rapid response projects found that adverse effects to nontarget (native mussel) organisms are an important component of EDRRP protocols and the decision-making process on the implementation of a control plan. Native mussels are especially at risk during treatment applications since they are immobile and likely to be in areas where dreissenids colonize. We evaluated the available toxicity data on current and proposed molluscicides for dreissenid mussel control to determine the potential risk of control treatments to unionid mussels and will discuss strategies for future research.
