Zebra mussels confirmed in 3 Minnesota lakes
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed three new reports of zebra mussels in central Minnesota lakes in the last week: Detroit Lake in Becker County, Signalness Lake (popularly known as Mountain Lake) in Pope County, and Round Lake in Aitkin and Crow Wing counties.
The number of new zebra mussel finds in 2016 is running close to last year at this time. "Most new zebra mussel infestations are found and reported from late July to mid-August,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor. “Ten new finds have been confirmed this season, similar to the number confirmed last year at this time. We also add some connected waters to the list when their infestation is likely.”
Less than two percent of Minnesota’s 11,842 lakes are listed as infested with zebra mussels.
