Marrone Bio Innovations to Present Invasive Mussel Control Solution

August 30, 2010

DAVIS, Calif., Aug. 30 /PRNewswire/ — Marrone Bio Innovations (MBI) will be showcasing Zequanox,(TM) its natural solution for the control of invasive mussels, at the International Conference on Aquatic Invasive Species (ICAIS) in San Diego, California, August 29 to September 2, 2010.
