Preventing an Invasion: Building a Regional Defense against Quagga and Zebra Mussels
Quagga and zebra mussels are the most economically damaging aquatic organisms to invade the United States, costing an estimated $5 billion in prevention and control efforts since their arrival in the late 1980’s. Because of the threat posed by these invasive mussels to the Northwest, there is a compelling need to define and implement a region-wide prevention and response strategy. Recognizing this need, The Pacific Northwest Economic Region, the Northwest Power and Conservation Council, Portland State University Center for Lakes and Reservoirs, and the Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission jointly sponsored this workshop.
