Eurasian Watermilfoil: Problems and Proposed Solutions

Record #:
The presence of aquatic weed in northeastern North Carolina has brought concern about control of its growth. Although some argue that the growth of watermilfoil is beneficial to sport fishing, others argue that it pushes out native species on which ducks and geese feed. Either way, as a part of the food chain, it requires some form of management. Researchers are working with different methods of control using a combination of changes in water level, light penetration, and nutrient loading.
