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.

Drones Used to Aid in Plastic Pollution Research - Race for the Water, a Swiss marine research expedition focused on plastic pollution, last week announced its plan to collect and analyze samples of plastic found on the world’s most remote island beaches. Over a trip of 40,000 nautical miles, the crew will use drones to conduct its work. Those drones will fly over beaches to collect information on how much plastic has collected there.
