Zebra mussels spread in Minnesota lake

MINNEAPOLIS — Zebra mussels have spread to 24 locations on a popular Minnesota boating lake, one year after they were discovered.

The mussels have settled into most Lake Minnetonka bays, according to an article in the Star Tribune.

At the discovery of the mussels, officials placed monitoring devices in 32 locations. In late June, during the monthly check, the invasive species was in 24 spots. Five locations had no mussels, and three monitoring devices were lost and awaiting replacement.

Zebra mussels also have infested Lake Mille Lacs and at least 20 other Minnesota lakes, along with the St. Croix and Mississippi rivers.
