MAISRC announces six new projects

The Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center (MAISRC) announced the launch of six new research projects, on topics ranging from assessing the impacts of aquatic invasive species (AIS) on walleye populations, prioritizing cleaning efforts for reducing the spread of spiny waterflea, and creating a decision-making tool to help counties better allocate AIS funds. These projects were selected as part of a competitive proposal process following a comprehensive needs assessment conducted by MAISRC. The results of these projects will lead to better prevention of aquatic invasive species and improved management of Minnesota’s resources, including the species impacted by AIS.
