Zebra mussels are a key management priority, although Asian carp, curly pondweed, and Eurasian milfoil also pose ecological threats to water bodies.  These aquatic invasive species are typically transplanted in new waterways due to human interaction.  It is often due to not draining the ballast water or overall failure to remove weeds and other aquatic plants from boats and trailers.
