In numerous animals, the surface of mucous membranes is ciliated similar to the bronchial mucosa in humans. Mussels not only breathe with their gills but they are also able to feed themselves by using them. The cilia growing on the surface of their gills produce a water current. Ingestible particles from the water are taken up by the mucus and led to the mouth. Mussels consequently attain great significance as water filtrators.
