Feel free to post a hello and where you are watching this from. And, do you have snow?
Mike Delsey
23:41
we have snow and ice. Lake Kasshabog
Janice Ivkovich
23:49
Northern Indiana, no snow, sun!
Mike Mckee
24:33
im in Ontario in Severn Bridge .we have some snow but lake not frozen over yet
HILARY MOSHER
24:35
Sun is great!
Brittany Hernon, WNY PRISM

Buffalo, New York. No snow just yet!
Sue O'Reilly (AWI)

Hi everyone! I'm joining from Keuka Lake -- we have snow (and starry stonewort...)
MaryBeth Deller
39:05
Rochester, VT, and no snow, but it is COLD!
Laura Bailey

The literature review is a really helpful resource. Thanks, Mike!

Buoy or boat bumper on the end of the rake toss rope helps if you lose your grip on the rope.
HILARY MOSHER

Thanks, Nicole!!
Laura Bailey
51:31
Haha! Great idea, Bruce. I've been there, done that!
HILARY MOSHER
52:57
Great idea, Bruce!

In Ontario we also have EdMaps … Run by Our OFAH Invasive Species Unit for sightings that citizen scientists can pin points on a map of sightings - vetted by staff there afterwards
Wil Wegman
01:01:13
Simcoe is 280 sq miles … largest inland lake in southern Ontario … SS is spreading rapidly there throughout shallow sections
Barbara Karthein
01:03:00
Lake Scugog, just to the south east of Lake Simcoe in Ontario also has done very extensive SSW research and will connect with you right after this.
HILARY MOSHER
01:03:37
EdMaps is great, too! Reporting is the key! And, i think that other mapping programs like iMap and the NAS software 'speak' to each other and share data
HILARY MOSHER
01:04:51
Simcoe has been treating for SSW over multiple years, correct?
Debbie Palmer
01:05:58
Indiana DNR has recommended a wait and see approach rather than rapid response!
Carol Cole
01:06:09
SSW was just added to EDDMapS in the fall of 2020. David is actually working with the Ontario Invading Species Program to get our data uploaded to EDDMaps
Sheelagh Hysenaj
01:06:16
Please note, no starry stonewort in Jack Lake, Ontario, only chara.
Wil Wegman
01:06:49
re Simcoe … Brian Ginn could answer better … but to best of my knowledge just mechanical harvesting for a variety of plants every fall in some areas
Barbara Karthein
01:06:55
Treating isn't really the right word. Lake Scugog has been working with various Universities and has just completed a three year research project on SSW. We found it first in 2015.
HILARY MOSHER
01:08:59
I see. Canada has strong impediments to chemical treatment, correct?
Wil Wegman
01:09:17
For the most part yes …
Barbara Karthein
01:10:13
Yes, especially those lakes that are part of either the Trent Severn Waterway/Parks Canada or the Rideau Canal/Parks Canada systems.
Wil Wegman
01:10:50
We are using it (Diquat) for water soldier in the Trent … system and have used it successfully in the Black River (a trib of Lake Simcoe) and some isolated ponds
Barbara Karthein
01:11:18
Very special allowances.
Debbie Palmer
01:11:25
It seems to be staying in the deep water and not impeding the shallow shorelines so not causing any problems yet.
Sheelagh Hysenaj
01:15:05
Great presentation, thank you. I am sorry I have another meeting to attend.
HILARY MOSHER
01:15:25
Thank you, Sheelagh!
Deborah Oliver
01:17:08
Thank you this was very good, unfortunately I have another meeting to attend.
HILARY MOSHER
01:17:17
Post your question here, please
Barbara Karthein
01:17:55
What does it do for long term fish populations?
Keith Ward
01:18:24
Is there any management technique that has been proven successful/
Bruce Gilman
01:20:15
Have the embayments along the St. Lawrence River been sampled recently for SSW?
Lynn Leopold
01:22:08
does the Cayuga Lake Watershed Network help at all in surveys? They are doing a lot with rake tosses for Hydrilla.
HILARY MOSHER
01:24:02
Hi, Lynn- yes, CLWN is a strong partner of the SSW Collaborative and we have volunteers taking rake tosses from Cayuga Lake
Mike Delsey
01:24:26
thanks. very informative.
Wil Wegman
01:26:49
We have had real good success with shade mats for water soldier
Wil Wegman
01:29:18
small 10X 10 matts
Laura Bailey
01:29:32
Are the shade mats installed on the surface of the water?
Wil Wegman
01:29:56
yes in some areas- we had better success by sinking them right over the plants
Laura Bailey
01:30:05
Ok. Thank you!
Bruce Gilman
01:30:21
At the south end of Canandaigua Lake, it appears that SSW outcompetes EWM.
Wil Wegman
01:30:24
easier to manage that way too- wave action disrupts them otherwise
Barbara Karthein
01:31:47
Any connection to climate change or salt levels?
Wil Wegman
01:36:58

Theresa Swenson
01:40:45
Can you speak a bit more on the success of mechanical harvesting for this species? Is fragmentation not a significant issue?

Interesting, over the years of harvesting, we have had a greater increase of Canadian waterweed rather than SSW. Going from about 70% SSW down to about 40%SSW to about 50% CWW.
Wil Wegman
01:47:09
Great job - Thank you!!
