Le Manitoba et l’Ontario s’inquiètent de la présence de moules zébrées dans le lac Shoal
"Le chercheur aux lacs expérimentaux de l’Institut international pour le développement durable, Scott Higgins, indique que les moules zébrées sont une espèce hautement colonisatrice. « Elles sont hautement envahissantes avec jusqu’à plus de 100 000 individus par mètre carré sur des surfaces dures comme le fond des lacs et les quais. Elles vivent environ sept ans, mais se reproduisent très vite. Chaque femelle peut produire jusqu’à un million d’œufs », précise-t-il."
