Another article for your consideration. I grew up in the Great Lakes region and found this article very interesting. Talks about the food web essentially and how even a tiny invader can really mess things up.

Zebra Mussels. Clear water, out-competing everything that eats algae. They are also the bane of Lake Champlain, with Eurasian Milfoil next.

I remember going to a community meeting with my grandfather long ago in South Hero about the zebra mussels in the lake. Since then I've picked them off the dock at our camp every chance I've had. 

I'll add those bass tourneys have gotten bad recently. I've never seen so many dead fish wash up.
