AIS Prevention Program Goals

Based on our existing infestations and current threats, the goals of our long-term AIS prevention program are:

Goal 1.  Prevention

Prevent all new aquatic invasives from being introduced at Lake Vermilion, with emphasis on those which would be game changers for our fishery, recreational lake use, and business community.

Goal 2.  Early Detection

Detect all new AIS infestations quickly, before they have become established, when eradication options are most viable. Emphasis on those which would be game changers.

Goal 3.  Containment

Prevent the expansion of all existing infestations, with emphasis on those which are game changers.
