This proposed rule would evaluate several high-risk, foreign mollusks and crustaceans for listing as injurious wildlife to prevent their introduction into the United States. These freshwater mussels, amphipods, and crayfish are not known to be established in the United States and could cause severe economic and environmental harm if they become established.
