Assessing Aquatic Invasive Species Risk in the Erie Canal Corridor

    Grant Details

    Description

    This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 112-74. This project will assess the risks presented by aquatic invasive species (AIS) to the Erie Canal Corridor (ECC). The project will catalogue non-native species in the Mohawk-Hudson River and Lake Champlain basins and identify currently-restricted AIS that have the potential to spread into the ECC. By using environmental DNA surveys, the project will help identify the current range of priority AIS, potential invasion pathways, and future surveillance needs.
