Pat Rooney, owner of Denny's Resort on Lake Winnibigoshish, stands beside his private harbor holding non-native Chinese and banded mystery snails. The snails, long established in the lake, do not seem to do any harm but zebra mussels -- larvae of which were discovered this winter in Lake Winnie -- are more concerning. Rooney points out that where the snails take up residence -- dozens cover each of his dock posts -- are the prime locations for zebra mussel infestations.

Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Level 1 boat inspector Ginny Barsness, right, approaches boat owner Doug Peterson and Dylan Klegstad on Wednesday afternoon to inspect their boat for aquatic invasive species at the Nymore access to Lake Bemidji. As it was the first time Peterson put his boat in the water for the season, Barsness’ role was an educational talk not an inspection. Monte Draper | Bemidji Pioneer
