Montana wildlife officials say evidence of an invasive clam that can out-compete native species has been found for the first time in a state waterbody.

Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials say Asian clam shells were recently found near the boat ramp at Lake Elmo State Park in Billings. The discovery was made by participants in a training session on the detection of aquatic invasive species.
