Aquatic Invasive Species

Zebra and quagga mussels are a threat to our waterways and therefore to our economy, recreation industry, to agriculture and to our environment. To monitor and raise awareness about these aquatic invasive species, the NSRBC as well as other watershed groups in the province are working with the Ministry of Environment. In the North Saskatchewan River Basin we have been training volunteers at Jackfish and Murray Lake and in the Lakeland District (which includes Emma, Christopher, Anglin and McPhee Lake) who are closely monitoring the lakes for zebra and quagga mussels.

If you are interested in monitoring a lake in your area for aquatic invasives and would like to receive more information, please contact us:
