Invasive Mussels Found During Boat Inspection
Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife technicians on Friday discovered zebra mussels on a boat at the Ontario boat inspection station.

The boat, which was being hauled from Lake Erie in Ohio, was the first vessel of the 2015 inspection season found to be infested with the invasive mussels. The station opened in March.

The commercial driver hauling the boat pulled in for inspection. Motorists hauling boats in Oregon are required to stop at inspection stations to have their watercraft checked for aquatic invasive species under a 2011 Oregon law.

The boat had a moderate number of adult zebra mussels around the propeller shaft and under the stern in the drain plug area. It was decontaminated at the inspection station with hot, high-pressure water.

An initial control effort to beat it back last fall had failed and New York state officials have said they can only promise $50,000 in state money and possibly $380,000 in federal money could come through for this year as well.
