Montana Fish Wildlife & Parks Top Last Year’s Total For Found Mussels In Boats

In: News Headlines

Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks says, since the start of the boating season, they’ve already stopped more watercraft for suspected invasive mussel contamination than they did last year. In 2020, aquatic invasive species checkpoints conducted around 174,000 inspections and identified 35 vessels contaminated with zebra or quagga mussels. This year, they’ve already stopped 39 mussel-fouled boats after just under 53,000 inspections. FWP’s Aquatic Invasive Species website has more information about inspection stations including a map of their locations and a dashboard with updated data on how many contaminated vessels have been intercepted.
