Search is On for Zebra Mussels
Pelican Lake was designated as infested waters on July 2, when DNR divers found two zebra mussels. Obviously an early infestation, but if the reproducing population is not located and removed it will quickly turn into a huge problem.

An adult female zebra mussel may produce between 30,000 and 1,000,000 eggs per year and spawning usually begins in the months from late spring to early summer. Zebra mussels are filter feeders and tend to out-compete native species for food and by growing on top of and suffocating the native clams and mussels. They cleanse the waters of inland lakes, resulting in increased sunlight penetration and growth of aquatic plants and algae at greater depths.

Unfortunately for Pelican Lake, finding the zebra mussel population in the 8,300 acre lake will not be easy and the public should be on the lookout in shallow water on hard surfaces like rocks, dock poles, boat lifts, swim platforms, pontoons or attached to a native mussel.

Blue-Green Algae a Threat to Hunting Dogs - With about 80,000 waterfowl hunters, Wisconsin has the third highest number of waterfowl hunters in the country. About 60 percent of those hunters use dogs to retrieve their harvested ducks and geese. Dogs don’t mind swimming in cold water, but take precautions against getting seriously ill from ingesting water contaminated with potentially toxic blue-green algae.
