Aquatic Nuisance Species Anglers Monitoring Network

This project will serve to help in implementation of a rapid response plan for introductions of new aquatic nuisance species.  Monitoring is a key component of rapid response, and this project will utilize the eyes of anglers who already in the field in a variety of locations.  An information system will be set up to inform anglers to watch for new exotic organisms, to provide a mechanism for angler identification of known and potential aquatic nuisance species, and to report new introductions to appropriate contacts.  This will increase the probability that any introductions of an invasive non-native species will be detected early.  Outreach tools including the state fishing guide, announcements in angler magazines and newsletters, electronic media such as e-mail and websites, and presentations at outdoor activities shows will be used.  A follow-up survey of the anglers will be conducted to see if the information is reaching the targeted audience effectively.
