September 15, 2015
Two new aquatic nuisance species have been confirmed in Michigan. The New Zealand Mudsnail was found in the Pere Marquette River near Baldwin, MI and is capable of reproducing in large numbers and displacing other macroinvertebrates. Didymo commonly called “rock snot” was confirmed in the St. Marys River and is a type of algae capable of covering the bottom of cold clean streams. Both of these species have no nutritional value.
