Daniel P. Molloy, an emeritus biologist at the New York State Museum in Albany, N.Y, has discovered a way to kill the zebra mussels in Lake Michigan with very little - if any - effect on other organisms in the Great Lakes!!

  1. From what I understand the spiny water fleas are more of a problem. They eat the same plankton the mussles and fish fry eat. I wonder if they kill the mussles if the water flea population will explode.
