EPA Awards $5 Million in Grants to Fight Invasive Species
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced 11 grants under the Great Lakes Restoration Initiation, totaling about $5 million; will fund projects targeting aquatic and land-based invasive species in the Great Lakes region that threaten native fish and damage the economy.

Recipients of funds include state and local governments, Native American tribes, universities and nonprofit organizations.

The restoration initiative has pumped more than $220 million into the fight against invaders. Nearly $100 million of that went to trying to prevent aggressive Asian carp, which compete with native fish for food, from reaching the Great Lakes from the Mississippi River and its tributaries.

One of the newly awarded grants, totaling $500,000, went to Michigan Technological University to prevent the spread of Eurasian watermilfoil in Lake Huron and Lake Superior. The plant forms dense canopies, snags boat motors and may cause problems for fish.
