Inspection numbers up for invasive mussels

The number of boats inspected for invasive mussels in BC has already surpassed last year’s total.

6,100 inspections have been carried out on watercrafts since April at 8 stations across the province.

The provincial government invested $2 million earlier this year to help with the fight against zebra and quagga mussels entering our waters.

Boundary-Similkameen MLA Linda Larson says it’s too early to tell if further funding or expansion of the government initiative is needed.

32 inspectors are working at the stations 10 hours a day, 7 days a week until boating season ends in October.
