The Northeast Aquatic Nuisance Species Panel’s mission is to protect the marine and freshwater resources of the Northeast from invasive aquatic nuisance species through commitment and cohesive coordinated action.
Established in 2001, it was the fourth of six regional panels of the federal Aquatic Nuisance Species Task Force, pursuant to the Nonindigenous Aquatic Nuisance Prevention and Control Act of 1990.
The Panel addresses issues and concerns relative to the freshwater and marine resources of its member states. The Panel’s members represent state, provincial, and federal governments; academia; commercial and recreational fishing interests; recreational boaters; commercial shipping; power and water utilities; environmental organizations; aquaculture; nursery and aquarium trades; tribal concerns; lake associations; and the bait industry.
