QUAGGA MUSSELS

These tiny mussels don't have legs, but they're excellent hitchhikers and your boat might be their next ride. Quaggas like to attach to hard surfaces, which makes the hull, motor, and any part of your boat that submerges a potential place for the mussels to hide out. And once quagga mussels have arrived at their new location, a single adult female can produce one-million eggs in a single season. Prevention is the key.
