Where Did Zebra Mussels Come from?

The native distribution of Zebra Muscles is int he Caspian and Black seas. However, commercial transport and other types of ships have redistributed them all over the world. The ships suck up up water and some Muscles by accident for weight to help balance when empty. Then, after the ships are loaded they release this water. That is how the invasive Zebra Muscle invasions began.
