A link to the sister Speypages site and a post I put there. A recent discovery, found sampling at Heritage Landing (south of Maupin) and at the mouth at the state park. Meaning it's likely in between as well... scary stuff, particularly the biology of the critter.
A more important note, however, is the discussion on what we all should be doing to prevent it's spread. For those who remember the whirling disease stuff of the 80's and 90's, sound familiar?? Please do your part! Invasive's are bad news, whether they be aquatic or terrestrial! :eek: :mad:
