I like the idea of stocking small mouths and red ear and bluegills to eat the mussels.

The article said the chemical killed ~90% of the mussels in test tanks. Reducing the population by 90% sounds great at first but won't that leave only the stronger more resistant mussels that will just repopulate with a genetic immunity to the control? Hopefully they are thinking about that. Sounds promising overall.

This was discussed on Wayneswords a couple of weeks ago. Some good info, but no workable cure for big lakes yet.
