In case you missed it, our Guest Speaker at our Annual Meeting, Dr. Michael McCartney, the lead zebra mussel researcher of the Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center (MAISRC), spoke about the possibilities of using genetic modification as a possible prevention or elimination of these invasive mussels. The Star Tribune published very good articles all about zebra mussels in two parts, Sunday and Monday, which featured some of Dr. McCartney’s research.
