  3.   What is the predicted length of time, and necessary conditions, to achieve restoration?
  4.   Is translocation of Modiolus mussels a suitable and potentially effective tool for restoration?
  5.   What are the impacts of removing top predators (e.g. crabs by pot-fishing) on restoration potential of Modiolus communities?
