Will sunfish eat zebras?

New study may show a zebra mussel breakthrough

By Celeste Beam celesteb@echopress.com Could there be a possible solution the pesky zebra mussel infestation? for A study of the aquatic invasive species in Lake Champlain in the state of Vermont points to the possibility . The study, titled, “Will fish become significant predators of zebra mussels in Lake Champlain?” examines the use of predatory fish, such as sheepshead , pumpkinseed sunfish, yellow perch and rock bass, to decrease the number of zebra mussels in a lake. Reportedly, these types of fish have

learned to recognize zebra mussels as food. As part of the two-year study, which was conducted by students at the School of Natural Resources at the University of Vermont, it was discovered that 50 percent of the pumpkinseeds and about 40 percent of the sheepshead collected had zebra mussels in their guts, which suggested that these fish commonly consume zebra mussels as prey . However, one factor determined during the study is that because the concentration of calcium in the water of Lake Champlain is very low, the zebra mussels have very thin shells. The shells make the zebra mussels thin more vulnerable to predation. According to Dean Beck, supervisor of the DNR’s Glenwood Area Fisheries, there are no current studies document-
