Quagga Mussels

Utah Division of Wildlife Resources

Quagga mussels are an invasive aquatic mollusk that have spread across the United States, and are one of the most economically damaging invasive species in the country.

Many Utahns are planning on taking their boats out to Utah’s lakes this Pioneer Day weekend. Utah Division of Wildlife Resources officials hope boaters stop to get their boats checked for invasive mussels, which are often called the “STD of the Sea.”
