Re: NANFA-- Collecting in Wisconsin today

This cracks me up. Zebra mussels are said to remove PCB's from Lake
Michigan. That's good. But in Wisconsin you cannot remove their old shells
from the beach areas so the deteriorate and put the PCB's right back in the
water. Why don't they clean up the old shells laying on the beaches???
Seems like a no brainer to me. Remove the shells and help remove the PCB's.


Well, in my case I'm more interested in snails; we can't collect mussels in
Michigan where I live (illegal; this is the land of the zebra mussel now).
We're not even supposed to HANDLE them, or the shell or parts thereof.
