Minnesota Invasive Species Reporting Procedures
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Invasive Species Program recently made several confirmations of new aquatic invasive species infestation in lakes around the state. The DNR urges people who think they may have discovered an aquatic invasive species to the DNR immediately or bring it to a local office for verification.

Christine Herwig, invasive species specialist in Park Rapids says that “if people have a true concern about something they’ve found that might be an AIS, we want to check it out immediately. We will respond quickly.”

Think you’ve made a discovery?

1.  Place the specimen in a bag or other container to keep it intact; if the specimen is an animal (e.g., snail, zebra mussel, spiny water flea), pour rubbing alcohol on it to preserve the animal.

2.  Take a photo of the suspected invasive species

3.  Mark on a lake map or GPS the exact location where the specimen was found.

4.  Contact the local DNR immediately to arrange transport.

5.  Email a photo and the location to a DNR office.

Officials Aim To Improve Water Quality In Northwest Iowa Lake - Silver Lake is a popular spot for boating and fishing, but it has been on the state’s list of impaired waters since 2004. The lake, plagued by algae growth and unwanted fish species, has a very cloudy appearance because of these two factors and wind that stirs sand around in the water.
