Previous studies on the zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) have examined tolerance limits of dissolved oxygen and temperatures that can be used in controlling this exotic pest. This study wanted to determine if colonization of the zebra mussel in the Atchafalaya Basin would be deterred by the natural seasonal phenomenon of increased temperatures and decreased oxygen saturation.
