Whether they are plants or animals, aquatic nuisance species (ANS) can create lots of problems when they are introduced. As such, it is important to learn how to recognize them; understand what impacts they may have on our native species and habitats; learn why we shouldn’t release them into areas outside of their native range; and know how we can prevent their introduction.
