A barge from Lake Ontario containing thousands of invasive zebra mussels that was intercepted in late June on its way to work in the Lower Mainland belongs to a B.C. company that was well aware of its obligations to clean it.

The barge from Fraser River Pile and Dredge, which calls itself “Canada’s largest marine, land foundations and dredging company” was being shipped by truck in several sections and all of them had to be stopped by Conservation Officers. They found it laden with the invasive mussels B.C. has been trying to keep out of local waterways.
