Aquatic Invasive Species

Video interview about aquatic invasive species, prevention tips, what is around us now and the importance of finding these invasive species early.

Also covered in the interview are ways to stop the spread of Aquatic Invasive Species and two new Aquatic Invasive Species that have come into North West Pa. One being the Round Goby in Lake LeBoeuf, Waterford Pa. 

The key is to catch these invasive species before they get out of hand, be cautious we don’t transfer them to other bodies of water or unknowingly dump them into a pond, lake or stream from an aquarium or water garden.
