Guardians of the Lake - the fight against zebra mussels

From the University of Minnesota: "Life in Minnesota depends on water. But zebra mussels and other aquatic invasive species are having a devastating effect on the state’s lakes and the businesses and recreation that depend on them. A project on Lake Minnetonka is looking for solutions to control zebra mussel populations and improve the health of the lake. It’s a collaboration between the one-of-a kind Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center at the University of Minnesota and the US Geological Survey. If successful, the treatment could provide a blueprint for preserving this treasured resource."
