Highlights:

12,800 watercraft inspected, 74 deemed to be high risk, 10 found to be mussel fouled.

Of the 10 mussel fouled boats, all but 3 were referred by other agencies (Canada Border Services, inspection stations from Alberta, Manitoba, Idaho, or Washington).

K9 officers Kilo (pictured) and Major continue to inspect boats at various stations in BC.

Monitoring BC lakes for invasive mussels began in June.   227 samples have been collected and analysed so far, no mussels have been found.
