Zebra mussels spreading in Lake Winnipeg; scientist says news isn’t all bad

"Higgins says zebra mussels have been confirmed in four bodies of water in Manitoba: Cedar Lake, Singush Lake in Duck Mountain Provincial Park, the Red River and Lake Winnipeg since 2013. Higgins says in about the 700 or so lakes that have been invaded in North America, there are only two examples where they’ve been effectively eliminated, and both were small lakes where potash was added."
