Developed annually since 2010, the action plan is designed to prevent the spread of invasive Asian carp in the Great Lakes. The action plan incorporates advances in the most current science making it a continually evolving foundation for the work of the Asian Carp Regional Coordinating Committee partnership — a collaboration of 27 U.S. and Canadian federal, state, and provincial agencies and organizations.
The Lake Superior Aquatic Invasive Species Complete Prevention Plan (the Plan) is an expression of the best professional judgment of the members of the Lake Superior Task Force as to what is necessary to protect Lake Superior from new aquatic invasive species.

This risk assessment report was conducted to define the priority pathways through which aquatic plant species may move throughout the Great Lakes region and identify gaps in knowledge, management, compliance and law enforcement, and education for these pathways. The results of this risk assessment are intended to guide future activities that may reduce the risk of introduction of aquatic plants into waterways across the Great Lakes region.
An interactive mapping platform that allows users to zoom in on subwatersheds and create detailed maps.
This report provides a realistic assessment of the contributions made by the Great Lakes-Seaway system to the state, provincial, regional and national economies. This analysis estimates the combined U.S. and Canadian economic impacts of all marine cargo moving on the bi-national Great Lakes-Seaway system, including domestic cargo moving between U.S. ports; domestic cargo moving between Canadian ports; cross-lake cargo moving between the U.S. and Canada; and international cargo moving between system ports and overseas ports.
Aquatic invasive species are moved into and throughout the Great Lakes basin through a variety of pathways. The Research Coordination Committee of the Great Lakes Panel on Aquatic Nuisance Species analyzed Great Lakes Restoration Initiative project information to identify trends and gaps in funding for a subset of regionally-prioritized pathways.
The Research Coordination Committee of the Great Lakes Panel on Aquatic Nuisance Species analyzed Great Lakes Restoration Initiative project information to identify trends and gaps in funding for aquatic invasive species projects.
Management of established invasive species is imperative to restoring the health of Great Lakes ecosystems. In order to guide research towards the riskiest species, the Research Coordination Committee of the Great Lakes Panel on Aquatic Nuisance Species analyzed Great Lakes Restoration Initiative funding to identify trends and gaps in funding for species-specific projects.
