Comments"New Zealand mudsnails had been detected visually in part of the Page Springs Hatchery in October 2019. We've had positive results of the snail from eDNA sampling along Oak Creek at the outflow and upstream as far as West Fork Oak Creek confluence with Oak Creek. This was the first visual observation of mudsnails found in Oak Creek (September 2021)." -AZGFD
