About Zebra Mussels

About Zebra Mussels 

Zebra mussels are an Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS). They are not native to North America. Once established, they cannot be eradicated and the impacts are not good – for our economy or the environment. 

  • changes to the aquatic ecosystem occur and have serious implications to water clarity, plant communities and fish species

  • adult zebra mussels attach to hard surfaces and accumulate to significant numbers which can impede the water flow of intake pipes for municipal and single home/cottage water supplies.
