Montana Mussel Response


Situation Report

Over the past two months, Montana’s mussel response program has evolved from an emergency incident command system to a fully integrated joint implementation team led by FWP and the Department of Natural Resources and Conservation. This “Situation Report” chronicles recent accomplishments and remaining challenges confronting Montana’s effort to contain, detect and prevent the spread of invasive mussels to other areas.

What Can You Do?

Aquatic invasive species (AIS), including diseases, are easily spread from one water body to the other. Anglers, boaters, construction workers, pond owners, gardeners, seaplane pilots, field workers - virtually anyone who works or plays in or around water can unknowingly transport these pests on their boats and equipment or allow them to spread via improper management practices. It takes only one mistake to potentially infest a new water body.
