New Zealand Mud Snails

Mods, can we make this a sticky?

One other note from the SPPP Annual Meeting - about the New Zealand Mud Snails and Zebra Mussels - this is a really big deal to the riparian ecosystem and we really need to make sure we are not spreading them around. The NZMS is the prime one for us, since the mussels don't live in flowing water much.

These guys compete for habitat with the trouts' food, so more NZMS = fewer trout - not good.

"The only sure way to prevent spread by anglers, or researchers is to make sure that waders, boots, tackle, sampling gear, etc. are thoroughly washed, and soaked in a solution of 50% water and 50% Formula 409 for 5 to 10 minutes before the boots, waders, equipment are used in another stream.
Freezing overnight will also kill the snails.
Any reports should be called in the ANS coordinator at Ph. 303-291-7362; or e-mailed to [email protected]."
