Project: Invasive Mysis Shrimp Control

Description: This project proposes to plan, test and optomize a strategy to reduce the abundance of invasive mysis shrimp to levels where they no longer mpact the natural ecosystem of Lake Tahoe. The effectiveness of using remote sensing to locate high density Mysis patches will be examined. This project is a priority for the Lake Tahoe Aquatic Invasive Species Coordination Committee to develop new control techniques for Mysis. This project is located wthin Emerald Bay and is a small enough area to remove Mysis in one seson using trawling nets.
