Project Details

Sea lamprey control in the Great Lakes has been an unprecedented success. This study used a qualitative approach to assess and analyze factors that led to effective responses to aquatic invasive species. Researchers found that agencies must have an effective plan coordinated with and integrated into a regional approach, possess or have access jointly to the necessary infrastructure and equipment, and be authorized and prepared to act collectively at appropriate scales for an effective invasive species response.
