Invasive Species
 Emerging Diseases
  The largemouth bass virus (LMBV) can infect a number of fish species. It is only known to cause mortality of largemouth bass.
 Examples of Aquatic Invasive Species In Connecticut
  Invasive or non-native plants and animals crowd out native plants and animals.
 Invasive Investigator Program
  The Volunteer Invasive Investigator Program is designed specifically to help educate people on ways to keep our waters clean and prevent the spread of aquatic hitchhikers into the lakes and rivers of Connecticut.
 Invasive Species
 Releasing Bait and Aquarium Pets
  Do not release or put plants, fish or animals into a body of water unless they came out of that body of water.
 Why do we care if non-native plants enter our water bodies?
  Invasive plants form dense mats that make boating, fishing, and swimming difficult. It can also harm the native sport fish population. Zebra mussels encrust piers, lift stations, and boats, sometimes leading to costly repairs.
