sorry, I meant to get to it and forgot. Below is a summary for affected
counties, transcribed from the IDNR web page. I'd bet almost anything that
most of the mussels listed occurred in the mainstem White- they aren't forms
that are usually found in small creeks. Does anyone else get the impression
that Indiana DNR is lying through their teeth, and trying to cover their
tails on this one?

For us amateur laymen, could I get some sort of break down as to what type of
life forms these are? Shellfish, fish, etc. Or direction to some site where
I can figure it out and maybe get a common name?

I will make comments on some of the above in a separate e-mail with another
