Connecticut River - Natural Resources

Natural Resources

The Connecticut River and its tributaries are known to contain 12 species of freshwater mussels. Of those, 11 occur in the mainstem of the Connecticut, all but the Brook floater, which is found only in small streams and rivers. Species diversity is higher in the southern part of the watershed (Connecticut and Massachusetts) than in the northern part (Vermont and New Hampshire), largely due to differences in stream gradient and substrate. Eight of the 12 species in the watershed are listed as endangered, threatened, or of Special Concern in one or more of the states in the watershed.
