State fights lake invaders with decals
HOLLAND -- Michigan's statewide initiative to solve the problem of foreign invaders such as zebra mussels in the Great Lakes is welcome news to boater Dale Grooters.
Standing on a pier next to the water, Land and State Sen. Patty Burkholz, R-Saugatuck, unveiled a program to sell Great Lakes Protection Fund decals to raise money to eliminate Great Lakes foreign invaders such as the sea lamprey, the round goyby, zebra mussels and other aquatic life that come to the Great Lakes from other parts of the world and have no natural enemies here.
