Join the Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center on campus on Wednesday, September 18 for a selection of talks about the latest MAISRC research on starry stonewort, zebra mussels, spiny waterflea, invasive carp, and much more. The list of breakout sessions is available here.
Hear from the state’s top aquatic invasive species researchers on:
- What impacts zebra mussels are having on walleye

- What gear entangles the most spiny waterflea
- Strategies to reduce the threat of invasive Phragmites
- Using copper to treat zebra mussels

- And much more — see the full schedule here!
Plus, interact with faculty over lunch, get an inside look into our state-of-the-art lab, learn tools you can apply on your own, and enjoy a poster session reception with beer, wine, and appetizers.
Lab tours will include the Whooshh carp removal system (back by popular demand!), using sediment cores to identify when spiny waterflea entered a lake, and using Koi herpesvirus as a biocontrol for common arp.
This is the best opportunity to learn all about MAISRC’s research and the latest in AIS management recommendations. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. If you wish to attend a lab tour, please be sure to choose that option when registering. Note that all lab tours are identical.
