The pumping behaviour of the freshwater mussel Anodonta cygnea was investigated. Mussels are rather sensitive to sulfhydryl blocking agents (Hg, Cd), which cause a marked shortening in their active periods. Some insecticides and herbicides shortening the mussels' activity also result in the reduction of water cleaning performed by mussels.-from Selected Water Resources Abstracts
