Aquatic Invasive Species Resources
Customized resources for any audience
Pennsylvania Sea Grant develops educational and outreach-related materials, delivers in-person and virtual trainings, and collaborates with state, regional, federal, and inter-jurisdictional partners to help stop the spread of aquatic invasive species (AIS). Many of our resources are under-going a refresh in order to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance for downloadable resources. If you are unable to find or access a resource please contact us to request it.
Pennsylvania Sea Grant has developed a suite of fact sheets featuring many of the aquatic invaders found in the state, and in the Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic regions.
Guides and Trainings
Pennsylvania Sea Grant develops rapid response guides and trainings for natural resource managers, guides to help plan aquarium pet surrender events, and more.
