CASS and UPPER RED LAKES; Betrami County Infested with Starry Stonewort
August 25, 2016
  :: Today MN DNR issued a NEWS RELEASE that starry stonewort is present in Upper Red Lake and Cass Lake both in Beltrami County.  This comes on the heels of the recent discovery of starry stonewort on August 5th in Turtle Lake, also in Beltrami County.  Starry stonewort are grass-like algae that may produce dense mats, which could interfere with use of the lake. The invasive algae also may choke out native plants. Starry stonewort is typically spread by lake users who transport fragments of the plant from an infested body of water. This new infestation is a reminder to boaters and anglers to follow Minnesota laws to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species
