Aquatic Invasive Species Workshop
On August 23rd, the Early Detection
and Rapid Response (EDRR) Network Ontario hosted an Aquatic Invasive Species
Workshop in Sault Ste. Marie. This full day event welcomed 35 members of the
public, anglers, industry professionals, conservation groups, non-profit workers
and government representatives.
Speakers included experts from the Invasive
Species Centre’s Asian Carp Canada and EDRR Program, Invading Species Awareness
Program, Three Shores CISMA (Michigan), and Canada’s Sea Lamprey Control
Program. The finale was an interactive show-and-tell with both real and replica
invasive species specimens. From invertebrates, to fish, to aquatic plants:
there was something for everyone!
The Early Detection and Rapid Response Network
Ontario is a collaborative project delivered by the Invasive Species Centre and
Ontario Invasive Plant Council, with funding by the Ontario Trillium
