Aquatic Invasive Species
- Aquatic invasive species are plants, animals and other organisms that have been introduced into an aquatic ecosystem (lake, river, wetland or ocean) where they do not naturally occur. Because they are generally lacking the natural pathogens or predators that keep them under control in their native habitats, they can spread rapidly and extensively through waterways.
