The following catalog lists, describes and provides a link to a wide variety of High Definition video images filmed in 2011 during the making of the “Don’t Move a Mussel 2011” video.  These images include edited interview and “B roll” footage from that project that can be used in a variety of ways, including for self-education as well as for video and still images for future outreach projects.

Some examples of videos that will educate are: Several Lake Mead segments on watercraft interception and impacts to lake ecology and fisheries; Great Lake interviews on changes to lake ecology, fisheries, productivity and nuisance algae; Blow-by-blow description of the Offutt Base Lake zebra mussel eradication program, Discussion on projecting the spread of mussels in the west and the economics of mussel infestations and prevention programs, to name just a few and many others.

Some examples of important video clips that will add greatly to the supply of available images for outreach and education projects include: Shots of heavily encrusted boats and equipment from Lake Mead and the Great lakes; windrows of mussels on beaches and a myriad of shots of facilities, boaters, natural resource features and watercraft inspection check stations.

The images here have been arranged by water basin (Colorado, Missouri, Columbia and Great Lakes) and by either “interview” or “B Roll” footage.  This material can be used to obtain still images or video clips for all types of outreach and education projects.  All images listed in the catalog are public domain and can be used without additional permission for any purpose, though they are clearly intended to educate viewers to the problems associated with Dreissenid mussel infestation.

We sincerely hope that this “treasure trove” of video images will be useful to you and to the cause of preventing the further range expansion of quagga and zebra mussels in North America.  Funding for this project came from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and the Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission (PSMFC).

Questions concerning this footage should be directed to Stephen Phillips or Bill Zook at PSMFC.
