STOP THE SPREAD OF AQUATIC INVASIVE SPECIES
Aquatic invasive species are plants, animals, and pathogens that are not native to Montana and can cause harm to the environment and economy.
AIS are introduced accidentally or intentionally outside of their native range. AIS populations can reproduce quickly and spread rapidly because there are no natural predators or competitors to keep them in check.
AIS can displace native species, clog waterways, impact irrigation and power systems, degrade ecosystems, threaten recreational fishing opportunities, and can cause wildlife and public health problems.
