Aquatic Invasive Species

Goodhue County has implemented an Aquatic invasive awareness campaign to help address the threats to Minnesota Waters.

Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS)

According to Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (MNDNR) Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) are threatening Minnesota waters.

Invasive species are defined as a nonnative species that:

These nonnative species harm fish populations, water quality, and recreation. Goodhue County will create a plan to organize efforts to prevent the spread of harmful AIS within Minnesota. Minnesota statute 477A.19 provides Minnesota counties a County Program Aid grant for Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) prevention. The amount designated for each county is based on the number of watercraft trailer launches as well as the number of watercraft trailer parking spaces within each county.

Goodhue County AIS Plan

The Aquatic Invasive Species Plan is reviewed annually.
