    Default Invasive Species Topic at TU 2017 Southeast Regional Meeting



    A topic at the Southeast Regional Meeting was “New Invasive Species Threats to the Smoky Mountains and Regional Watersheds” presented by:

    Most of the Whirling disease presentation material is at
    http://www.ncwildlife.org/Fishing/Whirling-Disease,
    https://www.tn.gov/twra/topic/twra-invasive-species and linked resources.

    How we can help:
    • Do not transport live fish from one water body to another.
    • Clean carefully all equipment such as boats, trailers, waders, boots, float tubes, and fins.
    • Dispose of fish parts carefully when cleaning fish.
    • Contact the appropriate commission/agency if you observe signs of whirling disease in fish.

    Other issues discussed: Gill lice, Asian carp and didymo.

    Didymo? Isn't that non-invasive?

    Good point. Didymo was discussed, but not as invasive as such. The first of the snot in the NC cold water fisheries was recently observed in the Tuckasegee. Jason, TWRA, when asked, said to date there has been no indication of it's adversely affecting Tennessee's trout fisheries.
