Aquatic Invasive Species Checkpoint w/Capt Anderson - Breakdown  pt 1
This is part 1 of our 3 part series breaking down the Aquatic Invasive Species(AIS) checkpoints. Re Public was there to film some boats going through the ckeckpoint and stumbled upon Captain Eric Anderson for this informal interview/discussion. This first part focuses on the ecology of invasive species. There is actually some good info in here from the order follower. He breaks down the ecological issues well and if you truly want to get rid of these checkpoints you need to pay attention to what he says about the havoc they can cause.

Climate Change Impacts on Aquatic Ecosystems in PNW
This webinar was held as a part of the Climate Change Science and Management Webinar Series, a partnership between the USGS National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center and the FWS National Conservation Training Center. Webinar Description: Trout and salmon populations, which play a critical role in many ecosystems and economies, have dramatically declined in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) due to habitat degradation and fragmentation and introductions of invasive species, and are expected to be further impacted by future climate change. Understanding how climate change will influence the abundance, distribution, genetic diversity, and value of these native fish species is crucial for their management and recovery. This project used modeling techniques to study how climate change might affect freshwater habitats of key trout and salmon species throughout the PNW. The goal of the study was to develop and provide novel tools that will help managers predict and respond to potential climate change induced impacts on habitats, populations, and economies.

Discover Better Boating: NYSG's Invasive Species Launch Steward Program (August 2012)
Sea Grant Specialist talks about NYSG's new Invasive Species Launch Steward Program as part of Your News Now's "Discover Better Boating" Series Spending some time out on a boat can be relaxing, but it's important to take some steps to make sure the water stays clean for everyone to enjoy. In this month's edition of Discover Better Boating, we'll learn more about how you can help fight the spread of invasive species. Syracuse, NY, August 18, 2012 - "Welcome to Discover Better Boating. I'm Dave White and thanks for coming aboard! With the continued concern about the spread of invasive species, many of us who are using boat launches across the State are having an opportunity to learn from launch stewards on how we can prevent the spread of invasive species and stop aquatic hitchhikers." "To help us learn more about keeping invasive species off our boats, trailers and gear, I'm here at the Godfrey Point Boat Launch on the north shore of Oneida Lake with launch steward Kyle Teufel." "Kyle, What does a launch steward do?," asked White. "As a launch steward, my main goal is to slow the spread of aquatic invasive species, said Teufel. "I do this in two ways, the first of which is by checking boats when they launch for any sort of aquatic material. And, the other way is by educating people on aquatic invasive species and what they can do to clean their boat and slow the spread." "What are the areas of the boat and trailer we need to be most concerned about?," asked White. "We start with the motor, because a lot of weeds can get caught up in there," said Teufel. "We then go onto the fender, including things like the license plate. Next, we move onto the actual trailer. A lot of times, weeds get caught between the trailer and the boat, they get pinched there, especially the wheels. And then, we finally end up at the actual hitch of the boat. "Beyond our boat and trailer, there are a lot of things we need to be thinking about in regards to invasive species," said White. " "Kyle, what are some of these other things?" "Make sure to check your bait bucket, make sure it's empty," said Teufel. "The next big thing is your net, make sure it's dry as well as clean. Also, your fishing pole. And your boots and your waders should also be cleaned." "Thanks Kyle, for helping all of us be good stewards of our resources and stopping aquatic hitchhikers," said White. "Be sure to join us next month on Better Boating and always be ready, be safe and be seen when you are on the water. Wear your life jacket." New York Sea Grant and the Boating Industries Association [http://cnybia.com/cnybia] are partners in the Discover Better Boating series [http://centralny.ynn.com/content/features/discover_better_boating], from which segments will run on YNN stations every third Saturday through October. The YNN channel, based in Syracuse, telecasts two separate program feeds, one to Central/Northern New York; one to the Southern Tier. YNN is available to nearly 600,000 cable subscribers across a 25-county, 15,000 square mile area.

In response to the recent detection of invasive mussel populations in central Montana, Glacier National Park is issuing an interim boating closure within all park waters, in accordance with the park’s Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Action Plan. The closure includes both motorized and hand propelled watercraft. This closure does not impact boating on the Middle Fork of the Flathead River, which is outside the park boundary, or the North Fork of the Flathead River which is partially outside the park boundary. The 2014 plan calls for this immediate closure when invasive mussels are detected within a waterway in the State of Montana, as was announced on November 9 by Montana Fish Wildlife, and Parks.

How Many Sport Fish Can Lake Michigan Support?
An environmental food web is an intricate, organic and delicate thing. Eliminate a strand here or introduce a new one there, and the entire structure can collapse. That's why researchers have paid such close attention to the food webs in Lake Michigan, where the appearance of several aquatic invasive species has threatened to upset the natural balance. Harvey Bootsma and John Janssen, Wisconsin Sea Grant-funded professors at UW--Milwaukee's School of Freshwater Sciences, have their sights on the waters close to shore. "A lot of our work has focused on what role round gobies may be playing," Bootsma said. "Up until now, the near shore has been neglected. From what we're seeing, there are some unique things going on. We've had a lot of changes in the last five years." He's referring to a massive influx of round gobies, one of several aquatic invasive species that have set up shop in Lake Michigan's waters. In the case of the goby, the impact seems tied to strength of numbers. In short—they're legion. And they eat copiously. "When we dive to do our research, there are at least a hundred swimming around us, watching us work," said Bootsma. "Numerically, they're clearly dominant in the nearshore zone." Bootsma and Janssen are performing their research in conjunction with similar research teams in Indiana and Illinois, to see if conditions in one state are being replicated in others. Existing research suggests that one of the round goby's preferred entrees is the quagga mussel, which is not the first case of one aquatic invasive species noshing on another. However, Bootsma and Jansen's research is revealing that round gobies don't actually feed on quagga mussels until they grow larger—between two to four inches long. By conducting a chemical analysis of stable isotopes and fatty acids found in the gobies' body tissue, they're able to determine what the gobies are really eating. "The mussels are actually a side dish," said Bootsma. "Most gobies, and especially the younger ones, are actually subsisting on other types of food." Those other types include oligochaetes and chironomids, tiny benthic organisms that live in the Cladophora algae that have come to clog the shallow shorelines of Lake Michigan. The question then becomes whether the round gobies' trips to the invertebrates section of the Cladophora buffet are, in effect, swiping sustenance from other nearshore fish, including yellow perch and spot-tail shiner. It's also unclear whether other Lake Michigan species like trout and salmon may be able to use the plentiful gobies as a food source to replace offshore food web components that have been affected by other invaders. "We know that lake trout and brown trout are eating lots of round gobies," says Janssen. "But we also know that more pelagic species, like Chinooks, cohos and steelhead are not." After spending months analyzing data collected from hundreds of samples, Bootsma and Janssen (as well as the research teams in Indiana and Illinois) are ready to head back out onto Lake Michigan and begin examining other sites. "We're interested in learning if the patterns around Milwaukee County are typical of the whole lake," explained Bootsma. If they are, their work could help to determine how the carrying capacity of Lake Michigan may have changed, which would affect decisions related to fish stocking and nutrient management. Stay tuned.

NY Sea Grant Works To Prevent Invasive Species' Spread (March 2014)
As New York Sea Grant's Recreation/Tourism Specialist Dave White told the newscasters at Watertown's WWNY-TV 7 News This Morning studios in late March, "Our Launch Stewards and others are working with folks at boat launch ramps, helping them to go through their boat and look at what they need to be thinking about when they're heading out or returning from being on the water." White reminds that "All parts of the boat, anything that comes in contact with the water can actually become a vector for transport of invasive species." Also, while this process is voluntary and only takes a few minutes to go through, it is one that can have a lasting impact on our enjoyment of New York's waterways. The stewards, who are paid college students, are well-versed in the Great Lakes Sea Grant Network-supported "Clean, Drain, Dry" campaign, which is designed to prevent invasive species from moving from one waterway to another. For more on Sea Grant's invasive species campaign and launch steward program, check out White's discussion in this video clip. Also see NYSG's related news item, "On YouTube: Sea Grant's Launch Stewards and Related Programs Help Prevent Invasive Species' Spread," http://www.seagrant.sunysb.edu/articles/r/2469.

Stop Zebra Mussel Spread - Texas Parks and Wildlife [Official]
The 2015 flood waters brought lake levels around the state up and boaters back on the water. The downside is the threat of invasive zebra mussels spreading from lake to lake. Texas Parks and Wildlife is asking boaters to help stop the spread of these economically and environmentally damaging pests. The law requires boaters to clean, drain and dry their boats and water compartments that can carry microscopic larvae. Ray Roberts Lake State Park plans to open by the end of September. It is illegal to transport zebra mussels or to leave a public water body without draining all water. These statewide laws apply to all types or boats. It includes sailboats, kayaks, canoes or any other vessel used on public waters. For more information on Zebra Mussels, including a video on how to clean, drain and dry your boat, go to www.texasinvasives.org/zebramussels

Maine's courtesy boat inspectors
Invasive aquatic plants, such as variable leaf and Eurasian water milfoil, hydrilla, water chestnut and curly-leaf pondweed, are a serious threat to Maine's waters. These plants are so vigorous and propagate so fast that they can crowd out native plants, affect fish populations, and make swimming and boating difficult, if not impossible. One critical control point to halt the spread of these plants is at Maine's public boat launching sites. The Maine Department of Environmental Protection has developed a program to educate boaters so they won't spread plants through lack of information. Courtesy boat inspectors are the first line of defense for Maine's lakes.

Fred Raish- Riparian/Wetland Restoration in the Republican River Watershed
The mission for Republican River Watershed Riparian/Wetland Restoration Project is to assist the private landowners, state landowners, and federal landowners within the Republican River watershed from the Nebraska and Kansas state line to the headwaters with restoration and maintenance of the native riparian and wetland communities that are located within these corridors. This effort will serve to protect water resources, native riparian communities, and enhance wetland use by water fowl and other wildlife. This project will be funded through a partnership between Yuma County Pest Control District, private landowners, Republican River Watershed Conservation District (RRWCD), Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB), private landowner grassroots groups such as Three Rivers Alliance (TRA) and Colorado Agriculture Preservation Association (CAPA), Colorado Parks and Wildlife, Colorado Corn Growers Association, U.S Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). This effort includes a comprehensive invasive plant and aquatic nuisance species inventory and removal component. The project has an educational component which has allowed Colorado State University (CSU), TRA, and Yuma County Pest Control District the ability to study the impacts Russian-olive have on the native plant species. This effort will also include a silt mitigation and removal plan. The timeline for completion on this project is 2015. This presentation will outline how the mission of the Republican River Watershed Riparian/Wetland Restoration Project has been obtained to date and what is to come in the future.

Development of Landscape-scale, genetically based aquatic biodiversity assessments
Presenter: Dr. Michael K. Young, USFS Rocky Mountain Research Station, Forestry Sciences Lab, Missoula, MT Date: August 16, 2012 To position state and federal agencies to detect and respond to large-scale ecosystem change, we developed a spatially comprehensive, genetically driven survey methodology to inventory fish and amphibians in streams on federal lands throughout the upper Columbia and Missouri River basins in Idaho and Montana. Preliminary results demonstrate: 1) the influence of historical and contemporary events on the distribution and genetic structure of westslope cutthroat trout; 2) invasive species are more widespread than previously recognized; 3) previously undetected levels of biodiversity and endemism. These monitoring attributes are key to understanding and tracking landscape-scale changes and linkages to management activities. If broadly applied, this type of monitoring can compliment other information sources being used to understand landscape stressors and landscape-scale ecological change.

Matthew Parkinson - Rhodes University Aquatic weed and biocontrol database - May 2013
Matthew Parkinson-Department of Zoology and Entomology, Rhodes University, Grahamstown The database is primarily the compilation of data from 6 years (since 2008) of field surveys conducted by the Biological Control Unit of the Rhodes University Department of Zoology and Entomology, funded by Working for Water. The survey focuses on the 5 floating aquatic weeds which are Red water fern (Azolla), Kariba weed (Salvinia molesta), Water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes), Parrot’s fearther (Myriophyllum aquanticum) and Water lettuce (Pistia stratiotes). Data collected during these national field trips pertain to the species present at a site, the extent of the cover of the water body by each species, the present of the biological control agents and an assessment of general plant health and damage caused by the biological control agents that were present. The data is useful firstly in documenting where the different weeds occur within the country and the extent to which biological control has been implemented in different regions and secondly contributes toward the long term monitoring and assessment of management strategies that have been implemented for various water bodies.
