  • Description:
    "Three lakes in western Connecticut, all part of the Housatonic River Basin, are considered at high risks for invasion of zebra mussels, on the basis of water chemistry data and popularity among boaters and anglers. A survey was conducted to assess the level of awareness of zebra mussels among lake users, and to examine transient boat usage patterns. During the course of the 325 interviews, it became apparent that while anglers were quite well-informed about zebra mussels, pleasure boaters and jet ski operators were in need of more directed educational programming"--National Sea Grant Library publication website.
