MN DNR announced that starry stonewort (SSW) was discoved in West Lake Sylvia in Wright County at the public access. This is the 7th lake in less than two months where starry stonewort has been detected and the 8th lake in MN since August 28, 2015 to succumb to SSW. Here is a map of the locations. Fall is when the filamentous algae (looks like a plant but actually is algae because it has no roots) develops bulbils, or what appears like small white flowers, and can be easily detected at the waterline. Any suspicious infestation should be immediately reported to the Pelican River Pelican River Watershed District (218-846-0436) or our local DNR AIS Specialist, Mark Ranweiler (218-616-2117). Early detection translates to better treatment opportunities! WEST LAKE SYLVIA NEWS RELEASE

Yesterday, Lake Detroiters Association notified lake homeowners that zebra mussels were discovered in Big Detroit Lake, some as small as 3mm. What was so amazing was that an angler noticed a very small zebra mussel attached to a native plant while fishing. The angler provided the GPS location to the MN DNR. Here are a couple of photographs of the zebra mussels that the MN DNR discovered upon their search. More information and maps.
