Invasive Species Information

Curly-leaf pond weed is a non-native invasive aquatic plant that out-competes native aquatic plants because it starts growing before native plants and forms dense stands. 

The dense stands may also cause problems with recreational activities such as fishing, swimming, and recreational watercraft users. 

The plant is usually transferred unintentionally by watercraft moving between waterways without being properly cleaned first. 

Zebra and Quagga mussels are a non-native invasive species .

With limited predators in North America, larvae and adults can take-over an aquatic community in a relatively short period of time causing severe ecological damage.

They filter huge amounts of water removing algae and plankton which is critical for the development of native fish fry and invertebrates, completely disrupting the food chain.

Rusty crayfish have large, robust claws which are grayish-green to reddish-brown in color

They also have a black band at the tip of their claws. 

On either side of their backs, they have a dark, rusty spot, about where you would grab them to pick them up. 

They can grow up to 6 inches and are very aggressive, out-competing native species for food and space. 

They also damage fish populations by consuming aquatic vegetation and fish eggs.
