New video: Zebra mussel survey methods
When a lake is newly infested with zebra mussels, it’s difficult to know the extent of the population. The earliest stages of a lake colonization are difficult to monitor because abundance is low, mussels are sparsely distributed, and their small size makes them hard to find and count. These survey methods can help agencies, watershed districts, lake managers, or anyone who is confronted with a new infestation. Learn more about this project here.
