Exotics To Go! Presentations and Publications to Prevent the Spread of Aquatic Nuisance Species

Exotics to Go! CD cover - waitress with zebra mussels on a platter.

We've produced a compact disk that is "fast food" for people who need materials to give presentations about zebra mussels and other aquatic nuisance species. Exotics To Go serves you what you need to know to:

  • Understand exotics
  • Educate others
  • Stop the spread

The "ingredients" were developed by the Great Lakes Sea Grant Network especially for lake associations, natural resource agency staff, and extension educators. Unlike fast food, the contents of this CD are healthy for your mind and those you "feed" it to!

Exotics To Go contains 7 "conveniently wrapped" PowerPoint presentations including scripts, images, and talking points that focus on zebra mussel impacts and control. Order from the regular menu (use the presentations as they are) or special order (adapt the presentations) to suit your "tastes." Twenty-two informational publications in PDF format and lists of people to contact about ANS are also included.

The exotic species featured are of national concern to inland water users, and some are specific to the Great Lakes area. All materials have been peer-reviewed to ensure quality.

Cost: $2.50. To order, go to our products order form, an look under the exotics category (item X 84). Once you receive your CD, be sure to open up the menu inside the front cover to find the recipes (use instructions).

Funding for this project was provided by a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to the National Sea Grant College Program through an appropriation by Congress based on the National Invasive Species Act of 1996.
