Common Invasive Species Examples in U.S. Lakes
If you’re a current lake homeowner or are planning to buy a home by a lake, you should be aware of what common Invasive species examples threaten our lakes. An aquatic invasive species (AIS) is a plant, fish, crustacean, mollusk, or algae that doesn’t naturally occur in US waters. The United States National Park Service has identified about 250 non-native aquatic species from other continents that are now present in our lakes and rivers.
