Do You Store Your Boat on a Lake with Zebra Mussels?


Zebra mussels are an invasive species that are a growing problem for boat owners, marinas and Texas lakes. They can attach to boats stored in the water, causing serious damage to the boat. A boat that has been stored in the water on a lake known to have zebra mussels will have mussels attached to it—often in crevices where you can’t see them. Before moving the boat to a new lake or considering boat transport or boat hauling, the boat needs to be decontaminated. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department can help provide decontamination guidance to keep you from transporting zebra mussels and infesting a new lake.
