Half of the center is DEAD...>D E A D DEAD. Yes they took in alot of the pollution, but they also flat out covered native mussels, and habitats for mussels.

Simple thing most they outcompete exponentially....go snorkel or scuba dive sometime in lake erie in a nice zebra infested area...totally covered...yeah, in now way was lake erie revived.
