Quagga mussels are about the size of a dime and tend to settle in massive colonies. Each mussel can release over 40,000 eggs in a reproductive cycle and up to one million in a spawning season. No known predator has been shown to significantly reduce the mussel in North America. Photo courtesy California Department of Fish and Wildlife
