Mississippi Aquatic Invasive Species Program

Mississippi’s temperate winters, subtropical climate, and abundance of fresh and salt water provide pathways for the introduction and establishment of aquatic invasive species.  In 2013, the Mississippi State Management Plan for Aquatic Invasive Species was implemented.  The goal of the plan is to provide a framework to help prevent and control the introduction of new nonindigenous species in Mississippi; control the spread and impact of existing aquatic invasive species; and eradicate existing aquatic invasive species wherever possible.
