Aquatic Invasive Species

Estimates vary, but it is likely that over 180 different species have invaded the Great Lakes watershed. Invasives can outcompete our natives, change the biological pathways of nutrients and toxins, become a nuisance by fouling man-made structures, or have entirely unforeseen impacts on the natural community or regional economies. Staying on top of new invasions and striving to prevent future ones is essential to Lake Erie's future health.
