Aquatic Invasive Species Control
Aquatic invasive species (AIS) (sometimes called exotic, invasive, or non-native) are aquatic organisms that invade ecosystems beyond their natural, historic range. Their presence may harm native ecosystems or commercial, agricultural, or recreational activities dependent on these ecosystems (definition courtesy of US Fish & Wildlife Service). AIS Programs work to prevent, manage, or eradicate the introduction and spread of invasive species.
