Mussel Report

 

Trending 1:

The much awaited arrival of the first shipment of “labeled” Slide Anchors with the “Clean, Drain and Dry” message attached are now being stocked on shelves of marine retailers in the western United States. “This is a great first step in helping remind boaters to clean their anchors and rope after every use,” commented Ryan Dvorak, owner of Slide Anchor. “If this contributes to preventing the spread of quagga mussels to other lakes and rivers, I’m all for it.”

The labels were purchased through a $12,000 federal grant to the Lake Havasu Marine Association, with a combination of efforts from as many as eight state and federal agencies. According to Jim Salscheider, LHMA president and CEO, boaters traveling from the lower Colorado River back to other states inadvertently transport invasive mussels on their anchors if not thoroughly cleaned. Quagga mussels, arguably Lake Havasu’s worst offenders, breed prodigiously, are difficult to remove, and can cause extensive damage to manmade water systems as well as to aquatic ecosystems in which they thrive. Salscheider expects the stickers to be a helpful reminder for boaters where they may need it most.  More ‘labeled” anchors will be shipped to retailers throughout the 2018 boating season.

 

Trending 2:

It has been noted by LHMA Parker Mussel Educator, Paul Berta, that owners of recent model year jet sportboats need to be aware that not all water inside the jet pump (under the integral swim platform) automatically drains when removed from the water. Water can remain in the clean-out port and potentially transferred to another water body if not thoroughly checked and emptied before trailering on the highway.  This issue needs to be addressed by the American Boat and Yacht Council as part of its on-going design and engineering review of industry construction standards
