Paddy agriculture impacts substantially on the biodiversity of floodplains, including freshwater mussels and bitterlings
. To model the habitat suitability for Unio douglasiae nipponensis, the itasenpara bitterling

Rhodeus sericeus (on average 48% by numbers and 38% by biomass in the seasonal catches) and gudgeon (25 and 26%, respectively) were the most abundant species in the canal (see Fig.
Since then, they've been aggressive invaders, driving the Japanese royal bitterling

Trematodes, copepods and even a fish (the bitterling
Rhodeus serceus) have been identified as parasites of freshwater mussels (Taskinen et al., 1997; Taskinen and Saarinen, 1999; Reichard et al., 2006, respectively).
