Rock snot, of didymor, was once native to a few stretches of rivers on Canada’s Vancouver Island, has now reached the waters of New Zealand, Iceland, Alberta, and Atlantic Canada. This aquatic invasive species, according to expert Matthias Herborg does not appear to be an issue to human or wildlife health, but biologists are concerned that it could alter food webs in rivers.
