Feds poisoning lamprey in Muskegon River system
Muskegon — U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service employees plan to poison Muskegon River tributaries in coming days to rid them of larvae from invasive sea lamprey.
The aim is to attack larvae burrowed into the stream bottoms of Cedar Creek and Brooks Creek in Muskegon County.
State permits allow the applications of Lampricid and Bayluscide between Tuesday and Aug. 26, but officials tell The Muskegon Chronicle their aim is to start Wednesday and finish within three days.
