Zebra mussels found in Minnesota’s George Lake

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in George Lake, near Spicer in Kandiyohi County.

A lake property owner contacted the DNR when he found two zebra mussels on a dock he was removing from the lake. A neighbor reported a single zebra mussel on another dock nearby.

DNR invasive species specialists did not find any other zebra mussels during a search of that section of the lake. The DNR will consider whether to also add Nest Lake to the infested waters list, because it is connected to George Lake.  Click on the following sentence to access the full story.

People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species that has not already been confirmed in a lake.
