Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Prevention

If you store your watercraft with us, please be sure to review our AIS information to help us prevent the spread of AIS.

  1. What is AIS?
  2. Why is AIS a Problem?
  3. What can I do?

Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) are invasive plants that live on, in or near water or invasive animals that require a watery habitat. Invasive species share the following characteristics:

  1. They are not native to the ecosystem. Some species may be native to the United States, but not Wisconsin; some could even be native to one part of the state, but not another.
  2. Invasive species cause economic and/or ecological harm. They can over crowd native species.
  3. They often spread quickly because of reproduction and/or a lack of predators; in their native habitats, invasive species probably have predators keeping their numbers in check, but in their invaded habitat, there's often nothing to eat them and stop their spread.
