CommentsWhen we removed our boat via the public launch the hull and trailer (including the wheel wells) were covered in statoblasts and required extra time to Clean Drain Dry. Confirmation on boats/trailers as transport vectors. Rose Lake free floating on a broken Brasenia schreberi stem. There was evidence of the bryozoan throughout the lake as floating statoblasts. Other intact colonies were also observed.
