OSU Fights Aquatic Invasive Species

Oregon State University's Oregon Sea Grant program received a $416,000 grant to help fight aquatic invasive species on the West Coast. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration awarded the grant to OSU, which was part of a $2 million effort to fight invasive species in lakes, oceans and rivers. Researchers from Oregon State University will work to develop a method to better predict invasive species risk and understand the impact on the environment of EDRR (early detection and rapid response).
