Quagga mussel will spread massively
The introduced quagga mussel eats the food of native fish and clogs drinking water pipes. According to a new study, the biomass per square metre is likely to increase further over the next few years and the mussel is also likely to increasingly penetrate deeper areas of Swiss lakes.
As the aquatic research institute of the ETH Domain, our research is in service of society. You can see this for yourself in our Annual Report. The annual compact review highlights the most relevant research results of the past year.
The annual Eawag Info Day is an important platform for exchange between science and practice. The Info Day magazine supplements the event and provides a comprehensive overview of the topic of the Info Day.
