Summer Invasive Mussel Report – no mussels so far this season!

 

The Invasive Mussel Defense Program has released a summer interim report.

So far 12,800 watercraft have been inspected, 74 of them were deemed high risk, and 10 were found to be mussel fouled.  Of the 10 mussel fouled watercraft, all but three were referred by other agencies, i.e. Canada Border Services, or inspection stations in Alberta, Manitoba, Idaho, or Washington.

K9 officers Kilo and Major continue to work at BC inspection stations, seeking out potentially infested watercraft.
