Evaluation of the mussel fishery in Wheeler Reservoir, Tennessee River


, : Evaluation of the mussel fishery in Wheeler Reservoir, Tennessee River. Journal Of Freshwater Ecology. 9(4): 313-319

We evaluated the freshwater mussel fishery on Wheeler Reservoir, a 27,155-hectare mainstream impoundment of the Tennessee River in Alabama. During July 1991 through June 1992, we used a roving creel survey to conduct 285 interviews over 57 weekdays and 12 weekend days. Total harvest during the 12-month survey period was estimated to be 570 metric tons, and included 15 mussel species. The most frequently harvested species were the washboard Megalonaias nervosa, Ohio pigtoe Pleurobema cordatum, and butterfly Ellipsaria lincolata. Harvest peaked in June at 290,414 mussels. Among collection techniques, total estimated effort was highest for divers (71,160 musseler-hours). The total estimated value of the 12-month mussel harvest (in terms of money paid to harvesters) from Wheeler Reservoir was US 2,119,921.
