Alabama Aquatic Nuisance Species Management Plan
The Alabama Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries is working with partners on a plan to address the invasion and spread of aquatic nuisance species in Alabama. Aquatic nuisance species are organisms introduced outside their native ranges that can have harmful effects on Alabama’s economy, human health and aquatic ecological health.
The Alabama Aquatic Nuisance Species Task Force is revising the plan and will send it to the Governor for appoval. The 93 megabyte Draft Plan can be accessed and downloaded as a PDF file from www.outdooralabama.com/education/generalinfo/ans/plan/AlANSPlan200812.pdf.
