Don?t move a mussel; G&F educates public about aquatic hitchhikers > Lovell Chronicle > Lovell Chronicle - All Stories
excerpts from above:
Quote:
The state of Wyoming has been surrounded and its waters are at risk for invasion. The invaders wonít come by air, land, or burrowing through the earthís crust, but rather by boat, carried into the waters by recreators and fishermen who donít even know theyíre bringing them.
Quote:
These mussels threaten municipal, agricultural, industrial, aquacultural and recreational uses and can severely hinder the delivery of water due to their ability to clog or foul pipes, pumps and other equipment.
At Big Horn Lake, the introduction of zebra mussels (see side graphic) would lead to the reduction of algae that competes with blue-green algae, allowing the ďbad algaeĒ to creep further, impacting the swim beach and negatively impacting game fish, Yekel said.

Don't move a muscle is a catchy. I like it. Fun phrase... gets the point across.
