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.

Lock and Dam Changes Aimed at Stopping Invasive Carp - Bighead, silver and other invasive carp have been making their way upstream since escaping into the Mississippi River in the 1970s. These large fish are voracious eaters that compete with native species and pose a threat to rivers and lakes. While no breeding populations have been detected in Minnesota waters, individual fish have been caught in the Mississippi near the Twin Cities, the St. Croix River and the Minnesota River.
