    Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EST
    Event Description:
    Invasive Mussels and the Zequanox Project
    A new biocontrol agent to manage nuisance invasive zebra and quagga mussels was recently put to the test in Emmet County's Round Lake. Zequanox, a dead soil bacterium (Pseudomonas flavescens), was  applied in open water areas at the bottom of the lake. Funded through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, this research project was a large, collaborative effort between many state and local organizations. Join us as we discuss the project, preliminary results, and potential future work to help manage nuisance mussels.
