Fishing Line Highest Among Potential Pathways Spreading the Invasive Species
Val Brady and Donn Branstrator, University of Minnesota Duluth scientists, were at a boat landing on Island Lake north of Duluth doing research on how invasive spiny water fleas can accumulate on anglers’ fishing gear.

Multiple studies have shown that humans unintentionally moving invasive species from lake to lake is a major factor in their spread — that the presence of public boat landings is the biggest factor in whether a lake is infested.

And now new research from Brady and Branstrator has found that fishing line may be one of the most likely way that spiny water fleas can hitchhike on our gear.

The upshot of the research is that anglers now know they can take relatively simple steps to help slow the spread of spiny water fleas. Simply wiping down fishing line, reels and bait buckets at the end of the day can greatly reduce the chance of any spread.

Chelan County PUD Combats Eurasian Milfoil - Every summer, two Chelan County PUD park maintenance workers use an Aquarius Systems weed harvester to cut and remove tons of Eurasian milfoil from parks and boat launches along the Columbia River. Without the PUD’s harvesting program, boat launches and swimming areas would be choked with weeds. This HM-420 harvester was built more than 15 years ago. It still looks great.
