invasive species: spiny water fleas by Dave's Blog

Dave Dempsey writes:
Rhinelander Water Resources Specialist Cathy Cleland says they came from the ballast waters of Russian ships passing through.
He concludes:
Match this against the announcement earlier this summer that the commercial shipping industry is doing demonstration projects on a control technology for invasive species. It's too bad the ballast water vector for invasive species has been well known for 20 years -- and now we're getting demonstration projects as an answer.

To bad you couldn't eat those like you can with another invasive species, the rusty crayfish. If another invasive species does come to Michigan, it better be tasty!
