Zebra mussels (Dreissena polymorpha) are an invasive species that have been implicated in the reduction of algae stocks in the near-shore environment of western Lake Erie. To determine their basin-wide effects, we applied a two-dimensional hydrodynamic and water-quality model for 1994. The model accurately reproduced lake-wide hydrodynamics and water quality. When modeled as true benthic organisms (resting on the bottom), the dreissenids grazed 53% of the western basin May through September net… Expand
