  • Linking zebra mussel invasion and waterborne commerce in the USA

    The zebra mussel, a non-indigenous species in North American freshwater ecosystems, has received significant attention over the past two decades as a costly and damaging invader. In the USA, federal-, state-, and local-level policies designed to control and/or prevent the spread of this species remain flawed, in that they do not everywhere account for (or enforce regulations over) all potential ...

  • Building a filter defense against Zebra and Quagga mussles

    Tiny mussels can create massive problems for intake structures, vaLves, pumps, screens and other water infrastructure around the US. Some filtration systems can provide chemical-free protection against invasive zebra and quagga mussels, but it is vital to understand the problem and develop the right system to avoid being overrun by the alien species. Zebra mussels (Dreissena polymorpha) and their ...

  • Chlorination for Dreissena polymorpha control: old war-horse for the new pest?

    The various chlorination regimes employed in industrial cooling water systems to control Dreissena polymorpha (Pallas) are illustrated. Literature data on lethal and sublethal effects of chlorination on D. polymorpha are presented and gaps in knowledge are identified. The data show that various factors can influence the chlorine tolerance of D. polymorpha, among which mussel species, mussel size, ...

  • State Fish Hatcheries and Invasive Species Don’t Mix

    INTRODUCTION The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department is responsible for the protection and management of the state’s fish populations. Cultured fish are stocked in natural and manmade areas that are excellent for growth and survival but have little or no spawning habitat. Other stocking areas include natural water bodies where spawning and nursery habitats have been destroyed or isolated from ...

  • Industrial cooling water fouling by Dreissenidae

    Together with the cooling water, a wide range of living organisms is entrained into cooling water systems, which can readily colonise the available surfaces in the system. Growth conditions in the cooling water system often are ideal for sessile organisms: the steady water flow assures abundance of nutrients and oxygen, while access for predators is limited. The consequence of this is that ...

  • Water quality is key to the success of Cardiff Bay

    Water quality has been a central theme in a redevelopment project that began with the creation of the Cardiff Bay Development Corporation in April 1987. This article will examine the role that water quality has played in the remarkable transformation that has taken place in Cardiff and explain how monitoring technology has developed to the stage whereby any person, anywhere in the world, can view ...
