What are they?

Aquatic invasive species are non-native plants or animals that invade Wisconsin’s waterways.  Their presence can cause severe damage to local ecosystems, industry, and tourism.  They also crowd out native plants, which provides more suitable habitat for native fish species.  Our channels are home to two species:  curly leaf pondweed and Eurasian water milfoil.  You’ve probably seen them hanging off your prop when you dock your boat at the end of a beautiful day on Lake Wisconsin.
