Aquatic Invasive Species
Aquatic Invasive Species Detection
We offer many aquatic invasive species (AIS) services, but our most popular is the aquatic invasive species detection or AIS Detection. Once invasive species get into a lake they are hard and sometimes impossible to eradicate. This means prevention of further spread is critical. We offer a general search services of your lake for AIS, or can concentrate on any area of concern.
From expert experience, we can identify the following types of species, zebra mussels, eurasian watermilfoil, asian carp, hydrilla, quagga mussels, spiny water flea, starry stonewort, rusty cray fish and more.
Other Aquatic Invasive Species Services:
- AIS Risk Assessment
- We can help prioritize which lakes in a county are at a higher risk for spread (colonization) and which lakes foster livable conditions (suitability).
- AIS Mapping
- If you’re lake already has invasive species, we can help develop strategies to minimize the impact.
- AIS Experiments
- We offer technical ability that enables us to evaluate the success of your approach to combating AIS.
- AIS Simulation Models
- Potential success is hard to determine outcomes of AIS. A simulation model is built in computer space, much resembling a game, where we can test different treatment or prevention models on outcomes before implementing them.
