TahoeLand: The Shrimp Problem

Released Thursday, 15th August 2019
 1 person rated this episode
Invasive shrimp are threatening Lake Tahoe. These are not the big white and orange crustaceans you get in a taco or on top of pasta. They’re called Mysis shrimp, and they’re voracious invaders that threaten Tahoe’s blue hue. If they stay and multiply, it’ll be hard to keep Tahoe from turning green. But if we remove them, they might also help other communities unlock climate change solutions.

And the shrimp aren’t alone. They are joined by other invasive species, including three pound goldfish and cannibalistic bullfrogs.
