Aquatic invasive species

Asian carp, zebra mussels, flowering rush and spiny waterfleas are all water loving species that are moving in to new waters in the state. Asian carp, although not in the Red River System yet, have been confirmed in the Missouri river system. Zebra mussels are in Pelican Lake, part of the Otter Tail Watershed, a subwatershed of the Red River. What can you do to slow the spread? Or prevent it in cases where we have not yet introduced them? Pelican River Watershed  and RMB Environmental Laboratories designed and developed a series of 30 second public service announcements to be used across the state. Below are links to two of the videos. Go here to see the listing of all available.
