DETROIT - Zebra mussels were discovered in seven more Michigan lakes in 2003 and now are confirmed in 184 lakes statewide, according to information released by the Michigan Sea Grant program.
The lakes added to the list are: Green Lake in Allegan County, Lake Bellaire in Antrim County, Sand Lake in Clare County, Bird and Fish lakes in Hillsdale County, Long Lake in Kalamazoo County and Highland Lake in Oakland County, the Detroit Free Press and The Daily Oakland Press reported Wednesday.

Authorities believe zebra mussels were introduced to the Great Lakes by oceangoing vessels and distributed through inland lakes by trailered boats and personal watercraft. They are blamed for clogging water intake pipes, wiping out other aquatic species and disrupting spawning habitats for fish.
