The Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers! campaign is designed to address the multiple challenges of an environmental issue known collectively as aquatic nuisance species. Invasive species represent one of the greatest threats to quality fisheries.
Invasive species are entirely a human-made phenomenon. As we developed the ability to transport ourselves around the world, we started carrying plants and animals along with us.
State lawmakers and wildlife officials want Washington's help in battling huge colonies of zebra and quagga mussels that are wreaking havoc in U.S. waters and costing U.S. taxpayers billions of dollars. The officials say an infusion of federal dollars would give them the biggest boost, but few expect tightfisted Congress to deliver.

After finding 14 adult quagga mussels attached to moored vessels and dock structures at the Wahweap Marina in Lake Powell, the National Park Service is planning a four -day “mussel blitz” to try and remove any more of the invasive aquatic pests. Starting June 10, 25 to 30 divers will be in the water at Wahweap and Antelope Point Marinas to assess the extent of quagga mussels.
Non-native quagga mussels have gummed up waterworks and fouled ecosystems across the country and now, for the first time, they’ve been confirmed in Lake Powell, the great southwestern reservoir that is a key part overall water storage in the Colorado River Basin.
State wildlife managers plan to save endangered fish along the Colorado River by importing a striped, saber-toothed predator, in hopes it will devour existing invaders that pr
Catching rides on cargo ships and fishing boats, many invasive species are now covering our shorelines and compromising the existence of our native marine life. In a study published in Ecology Letters, Northeastern University Prof. David Kimbro and his team examine what factors allow some invasive species to survive in their new environments and others to fail.
The mayors of Houston, Dallas and Austin told lawmakers on Tuesday that they support a proposed $2 billion fund to finance water projects across the state and would like to see les
