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.

Water Solider Could be Added to Michigan Prohibited Plant List - Water soldier was identified as one of the 16 “least-wanted species” aquatic invasive species at the 2013 meeting of the Council of Great Lakes Governors and Canadian Premiers. Prevention of new invasive species and stopping the spread of existing invasive species are considered vital for limiting the impacts on Michigan’s ecology, economy and natural resources.
