Zebra Mussels Discovered in Trout Hatchery Water Supply
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation announced, invasive zebra mussels were discovered in Delta Lake, which serves as DEC's Rome Fish Hatchery water supply.  The department immediately launched an investigation and through subsequent water testing at the hatchery, confirmed the presence of zebra mussel veligers (larvae) in an outdoor raceway.

With nearly 160,000 pounds of brook, rainbow and brown trout annually, the Rome Hatchery is one of DEC's largest hatcheries. DEC officials say that hatchery managers are currently developing short- and long-term strategies to limit the spread of the mussels and will work towards returning the hatchery to normal production as quickly as possible.

Fish from the Rome hatchery will only be stocked in waters currently inhabited by zebra mussels. Fisheries managers will have to determine the type and number of fish stocked into individual water bodies; some waters may receive a reduction, others an increase in stocking, while other waters may not be stocked at all.

European Frog-Bit: Be on the Lookout for This Aggressive Invasive Plant - European frog-bit is listed on Michigan’s Aquatic Invasive Plant Watch List, which identifies species that present an immediate and significant threat to Michigan’s natural resources. European frog-bit produces dense, floating mats that cover large areas of shoreline. These mats can hinder recreation, reduce waterfowl and fish habitat, and reduce light conditions for beneficial native aquatic plants.
