"Like Hiawatha, Nokomis was declared infested in 2011 by the DNR and managed accordingly, even though no actual zebra mussels have been found there."------- How can you declare it infested if you never actually found any there? Also, how do you manage it accordingly if there isn't any proof that it is even there? Finally, how much did it cost to accordingly manage a problem that they had no proof even existed?

"“I think we’ll find more next year,” she said. “But I don’t think 2014 will be a year when people say, ‘I don’t want to be on that beach.’"----They might no say that because of zebra mussels but still might say it due to the other problems with the beach.

Perch eat zebra mussels. Net off that one acre dump some Perch in, see how long it takes for them to eat them. That's what the biologists did when they determined zebra mussels can be controlled with predators. Give people the Missouri treatment! Biotic-resistance natures control!
