Zebra Mussel Spread | Zebra Mussel Monitoring
Since they were first discovered on Lake Champlain in 1993, zebra mussels have rapidly spread throughout nearly all of Lake Champlain, as shown on the Zebra Mussel Spread animated map. They have also unfortunately spread to nearby lakes including Lake Bomoseen in Vermont and Lake George in New York. Careless boaters were the most likely cause of the spread. Fortunately the infestation on Lake George was contained to a small area, which was cleared of the mussels by divers.
