Regional district looking for mussels

Daily Courier – August 6, 2014

A Regional District of Central Okanagan boat launch is part of a Valley-wide network of monitoring stations for invasive mussels.

A monitoring device has been installed at the Okanagan Centre Safe Harbour Regional Park boat launch, which is maintained by the regional district.

The Okanagan and Similkameen Invasive Species Society (OASISS) installed the monitoring station and checks it monthly through the fall, along with taking a plankton sample for any signs of zebra and
quagga mussels.
