Great Lakes Commission Scans Internet for AIS
With a $400,000 grant from the US EPA, the Great Lakes Commission (GLC) will develop web-crawling software to assess the availability of aquatic invasive species for purchase – and identify sellers of those species – on the internet.

The web crawler will search the internet for invasive species f concern to the Great Lakes, including species that are currently regulated by Great lakes jurisdictions and those that have been identified as posing an invasion risk to the region.

Sellers identified through this project will be contacted with information on relevant regulations and potential risks associated with the species of concern they are selling.

A study found that of the 77 aquatic plant species restricted for sale in the United States, 45 percent are available for sale on the internet.

Lock and Dam Changes Aimed at Stopping Invasive Carp - Bighead, silver and other invasive carp have been making their way upstream since escaping into the Mississippi River in the 1970s. These large fish are voracious eaters that compete with native species and pose a threat to rivers and lakes. While no breeding populations have been detected in Minnesota waters, individual fish have been caught in the Mississippi near the Twin Cities, the St. Croix River and the Minnesota River.
