Great Lakes Governors and Premiers advance Aquatic Invasive Species "Least Wanted" Actions

The Great Lakes St. Lawrence Governors & Premiers have identified the “least wanted” aquatic invasive species (AIS) that present an imminent threat to the Great Lakes St. Lawrence River region. In 2013, the Governors and Premiers committed to take priority action on the transfer of these species to and within the region. Since then, the states and provinces have taken more than 40 separate actions to restrict these high-risk AIS, and the US federal government has similarly restricted four of the species.
