Mussels are a "SKIFF-TRANSMITTED DISEASE" (STD), and they're a threat to Utah lakes. They’re so small, they could be hitching a ride on your boat without you even knowing it. They’re dangerous and they’re damaging. That’s why it’s so important to prevent spreading them to other Utah lakes.

The Culprit

INVASIVE MUSSELS

Mussels form dense, destructive colonies that encrust almost any underwater surface. Newly hatched mussels (called veligers) are microscopic. Veligers can easily be transferred to other waters without boat owners even knowing.
