Lake lovers of any education level are encouraged to register for the Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Detectors certification that is fully online for the first time this year. The certification is an introduction to aquatic invasive species science, identification, and surveillance.
The crossing of non-native Eurasian watermilfoil and native northern watermilfoil results in 'hybrid watermilfoil,' which is more invasive and can be more difficult to treat. MAISRC is supporting information-sharing across stakeholder groups engaged in hybrid milfoil management and can provide technical support in sampling methods and low-cost genotyping.

We are excited to announce a rapid response project in partnership with the University of Minnesota Genomics Center to conduct genetic testing on the zebra mussels that were inadvertently distributed within aquarium moss balls and sold at pet stores across the U.S. and Canada—including in Minnesota.

We're grateful for the support of our funders, especially the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources.
