CIGLR Spotlight: GLANSIS

CIGLR Spotlight: GLANSIS

Many non-native species have been introduced to the Great Lakes and tracking them is critically important. GLANSIS is an acronym for the Great Lakes Aquatic Nonindigenous Species Information System and is a “one-stop shop” for information about aquatic invaders in the Great Lakes region. It acts as a digital toolkit that uses maps to show where different species occur throughout a watershed and provides information on their identification, management and control. GLANSIS is a very collaborative inter-agency project and is a free tool for both scientists and the general public to learn more about what’s in their local waterways. Staying on the cutting edge of invasion science in the Great Lakes is our goal!
