The primary management strategies to combat AIS vary and are best illustrated by what is known as the “invasion curve.” This describes the invasion process and management actions associated with uptake, introduction, spread and establishment of a species. A chosen management strategy will change based on where a species falls along the invasion curve. Management strategies include prevention, surveillance and response, slowing the spread, and long-term management. Within these high-level strategies, different kinds of activities can be implemented, such as regulation and policy development, compliance and law enforcement, inventory and monitoring, and education and outreach.
