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.
