Boaters can curb spread of invasives


Asian clams populate sandy areas and can be devastating to water-intake pipes once they colonize an area.

Spiny water fleas, bloody red shrimp and round gobies are also knocking on Lake Champlain’s door and could become invasive species here soon, Malchoff noted.

“It may involve some changes in behavior but not huge changes.”
