Phoenix Environmental was established to work with state and local environmental agencies in the collection and retention of fresh water mussels. Mussels are housed temporarily in a series of large aquariums and are fed with algae taken from their native habitat.

The algae growth as a food source is promoted using a closed loop nitrogen cycle which begins with fresh water fish which generate the nitrates as a byproduct. The nitrates are pumped to an algae tank which is provided with artificial sunlight and COto promote algae growth.

To complete the natural nitrogen cycle, the algae is then fed into the mussel habitat tanks at a defined rate and the water from the mussel habitat is then returned to the fresh water fish containment area.
