What a year!
To our valued lakeshore association members,
2018 was an exciting year at the Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center! We funded seven new projects, including evaluating the efficacy of copper-based control on zebra mussels, an economic analysis of ecosystem services as they relate to common carp, creating a new tool for eDNA collection, research into the genetic control of common carp, and more.
