Aquatic and Invasive Species Prevention and Management

Aquatic invasive species (AIS) have well-documented negative impacts on communities and aquatic ecosystems across the nation. AIS has been shown to reduce densities of desirable native species, impact regionally threatened and endangered species, and alter nutrient cycling and hydrology contributing to harmful algal blooms and the transmission of pathogens and parasites to native organisms. The following initiatives and resources focus on addressing AIS issues.
