Wildlife Spotlight - Blue Pacific Mussel

If you want a guaranteed wildlife sighting on a trip, look no further than the Blue Pacific Mussel. Thousands of mussels line the coast along Resurrection Bay. They live at the high end of the intertidal zone so they will be visible during trips that run during high tide. The main predator for these mussels are the sea stars that live at the lower end of the intertidal zone. If you are lucky, you may be able to see a sea star feasting on a blue mussel if you are cruising the coast line with us at low tide.
