Alien mussel species found in Loughgall Lake
Zebra mussels were discovered in Loughgall Lake.
Zebra mussels can cause blocked intake pipes which increases costs to both water treatment plants and to boat users. They also pose a threat to the natural functioning of a lake system. They damage native species by out-competing with them for food, hunting and eating them, altering their habitat or by introducing disease.
The Zebra mussel is a small stripy, freshwater mussel native to the Caspian Sea area. They form large colonies and attach themselves on the stony lake bottom. They also cling to any hard surface, such as boats, buoys and water intake pipes. They can form dense clusters and are mainly spread by recreational water use.
All water users must follow the guidance issued to help prevent the spread of these mussels. Signs have been placed at slipways around affected areas and at other infected sites, highlighting that:
- boats and equipment should be carefully cleaned
- bilge water drained
- any plant material attached to the engine or trailer should be removed
