The invasive species was found in Lake Koronis near Paynesville.

On July 8th, a fishing guide snagged an adult zebra mussel on a hook and reported it to the DNR.

Aquatic invasive species specialists searched the area but didn't find any other zebra mussels. However, during a follow-up search, the DNR says one juvenile zebra mussel was found near the Lake Koronis Regional Park public water access.
