Join a network of citizen scientists and learn how to identify and report aquatic invasive species. Registration is now open!
MAISRC uses innovative science to identify solutions to Minnesota’s AIS problems. Our mission is to develop research-based solutions that can reduce the impacts of aquatic invasive species in Minnesota by preventing spread, controlling populations, and managing ecosystems; and to advance knowledge to inspire action by others.
Catch up on research progress, recent newsletters, news stories, and more updates from the Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center.
MAISRC scientists research solutions related to invasive invertebrates, fish, plants, and microbes. Our research is focused on control and management, detecting AIS to better target controls, and preventing the establishment and minimizing the spread of key species.
Our researchers are working diligently to address the AIS issues that are threatening Minnesota’s lakes, rivers, and wetlands. Help us do this critical work with a gift today -- private contributions to MAISRC make a real difference and provide us with the flexibility to meet critical needs as they arise.
