This project is a direct request from CEQ to NOAA to use the Great Lakes Sea Grant Network to respond to opportunities and requests for education and outreach on Asian carp and regional control efforts within each of the eight Great Lakes states. Opportunities and requests will be coordinated as needed with the ACRCC and CEQ. Target Audiences may include anglers, charter captains, teachers and students, the general public, elected officials, resource managers, decision makers, marina operators, boaters, port directors, coastal county commissioners and mayors, and many partner or collaborating organizations including TNC, DNRs, USEPA, USGS, the Great Lakes Fishery Commission, the International Joint Commission, and others. By using the established outreach and extension programs of the various Great Lakes states Sea Grant offices, ACRCC will be able to more effectively reach recreational and resource users to prevent the introduction and spread of invasive species in the region.
