The New York State Museum (NYSM) has selected Marrone Bio Innovations, Inc. (MBI) to commercialize its exciting discovery of a naturally occurring microorganism to kill invasive zebra and quagga mussels.

These invasive freshwater bivalves (zebra mussel and the close relative, the quagga mussel) are having a billion dollar impact on the North American economy and major negative impacts on freshwater ecosystems.
