This Mission is the online repository of marine, fresh-water and terrestrial mollusks spotted by Project Noah members from all over the globe. Mollusca is the largest marine phylum in the world, with a "great range of anatomical diversity" (from Wikipedia). There are around 85,000 species of mollusks: from Cephalopods (squid, octopus, cuttlefish) to Gastropods (nudibranchs, snails); from Bivalves (clam, oysters) to other types of sea shells and worm-like organisms.
