Abstract: The zebra mussel was inadvertantly introduced to the United States and is now spreading rapidly, impacting native fish species, as well as clogging power plant intakes. Boaters, anglers, and waterfowl hunters can help prevent further spread of zebra mussels and other aquatic invasive species.
