Aquatic invasive species are species found outside their natural geographic range that cause ecological or economic harm, or harm to human health. Aquatic invasive species (AIS) can be spread by human activities, including global trade and recreation. Preventing the introduction and spread of AIS should be a top priority in Pennsylvania as the state has more than 84,000 miles of streams, 77 miles of Great Lakes shoreline and many inland lakes, and shares five major watersheds with other states and Canada. In this talk, Pennsylvania Sea Grant will present information on steps boaters, anglers, water gardeners and aquarium owners can take to prevent the introduction and spread of AIS.
