REPORTER: We’re here talking to one of the fastest growing invasive species in Texas.
SAL: Hi, I’m Giant Salvinia, nasty invasive species. I double in size every week.
REP: I understand you destroy Texas lakes and ruin fishing.
SAL: Oh yea, that’s my thing.
REP: That would be why boaters, fishermen and skiers hate you.
SAL: Yeah, but they do give me rides from lake to lake.
REP: Folks, giant salvinia clings to boats, trailers and gear. So remove even the smallest piece and put it in the trash.
SAL: Don’t tell them that!
REP: Hello Giant Salvinia. Goodbye Texas Lakes. A message from Texas Parks and Wildlife.
