    Appendix A: Freshwater Mussels New Hampshire Wildlife Action Plan Appendix A Freshwater Mussels‐45 Mortality from drawdowns for plant control and waterbody management (Threat Rank: Medium) Drawdowns and the associated dewatering expose mussels to heat, desiccation, and opportunistic predators. Squid, octopuses, oysters, scallops and other shellfish are ocean-dwelling mollusks. There are nearly species of freshwater mussels in North America, with most of these species in the eastern and midwestern United States. This mussel diversity has caused some biologists to call the U.S. "the rain forest of freshwater mussels.".
