  1. family unionidae

    Family Unionidae, also known as the Unionids or collectively as freshwater mussels, is a large family of bivalve mollusks found in fresh water environments like rivers, ponds, and lakes. They are characterized by their thick and strong shells, symmetrical valves, and unique life cycle where certain stages are spent attached to a host, typically a fish. They act as important regulators of water quality by filtering out pollutants and heavy metals. Unfortunately, numerous species within this family are considered endangered or vulnerable due to habitat loss and water pollution.
