The GLMRIS Natural Resources Team has made available responses to the public and agency review comments generated from a conference call held to ask questions and provide comment on the Aquatic Nuisance Species White Paper. A Memorandum for Record documents the comments and GLMRIS Team responses. In light of the stakeholder input, several revisions have been made to the ANS White Paper.
The total number of potential High Risk invasive species remains at forty (40), with no changes to individual species identified on this list.
