Aquatic invasive species are organisms that are introduced in waters beyond their native range and cause or may cause environmental harm, or harm to human, animal, or plant health. Their unwelcome presence can destroy ecosystems and cost millions of dollars in lost commerce by hindering water dependent commercial, agricultural, aquacultural, and tourism activities.

Aquatic invasive species negatively impact the quality of boating and other outdoor recreation experiences. They can also carry pathogens that cause disease in fisheries, wildlife, and even humans.

Within the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Branch of Aquatic Invasive Species protects aquatic wildlife and habitats by:

  • Preventing introductions,
  • Detecting and responding to new species threats,
  • Stopping the spread and suppressing existing invasive populations,
  • Educating the public about threats so they help stop the spread of harmful invaders.
