The lab of crassus

Written by Ivan on . Posted in The thick shelled river mussel


Major construction work has been completed and only smaller adjustments remain to be done. According to our expert and surveyor of the constructions, the work done is of highest quality. Thus, the lab will be fully operational this spring, after that aquariums and equipments have been put into place in April. An opening ceremony is planned for in August. Until then, we call for suggestions of a proper name of the lab, including a catchy lay-out for the sign which will crown the facility!

Now it is time to fill the lab with aquariums, pumps, water, fish and mussels…


One year ago…

We continue to deliver!

UC4LIFE doing Austria

The UC4LIFE-project was presented at Kefermarkt, Linz, Austria (12/11/2013). A nice joint venture between the thick shelled river mussel and freshwater pearl mussel one might say. Common problems, indifferences and similarities between the species were discussed. We still have a lot to learn about both species, although we are catching up thanks to stringent research throughout Europe.
