Doug Jensen, AIS program coordinator, co-chaired, along with Tim Campbell, Wisconsin Sea Grant, the Great Lakes Briefs on Invasive Organisms Traded in Commerce Symposium in Milwaukee, Wis., in June. Sponsored by the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, the symposium was the first of its kind to advance knowledge and understanding of organisms in trade invasion pathways. Pathways addressed were: aquarium, water garden, live bait, aquaculture/live seafood, live study specimen and diseases and pathogens which related to all of these pathways. National and regional experts focused on what is being done to topics relating to risk assessment, regulations, outreach and industry efforts so that the Great Lakes will be better prepared to address issues related to these potential invasion pathways. Jensen also gave an invited presentation, Habitattitude: How Can It Help Us? as well as co-hosted a Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers! and Habitattitude booth, and presented a Habitattitude poster and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point poster.

In June, Jensen gave an invited talk, Help Stop the Spread of Aquatic Invasive Species in Our Waters, at the Caribou Lake Association meeting, in Duluth, Minn. He was interviewed by Jay Anderson during “DayBreak”, WTIP-Radio, Grand Marias, Minn., concerning the Great Lakes BIOTIC Symposium as well as the recent sighting of zebra mussels in Crooked Lake near Finland, Minn. For another “DayBreak” installment, he was interviewed about AIS threats to the region, including spiny waterflea and rusty crayfish, Habitattitude, and the successful eradication of goldfish and koi from Rock Pond at UMD in 2004. He was also interviewed live by Scott Hanson, Radio USA 99.9, about getting kids out fishing on the water and opportunity to teach them about the importance to help Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers!

Jensen hosted a Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers! booth during the 14th Annual Lincoln Park Walleye Open in Duluth, Minn., in June.

The Open House was the culmination of a project with NOAA Coastal Service Center to identify impacts of development and climate change on flooding damage in this urban trout stream. The project examined the economics of protection vs. costs of damage. During the open house, residents of the Chester Creek watershed learned about stormwater and flooding, the project findings, and identified the types of stormwater reductions practices that the community and themselves as homeowners would like to see.

Minnesota Sea Grant featured Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers! and Habitattitude! during the 5th Annual Let’s Take a Kid Fishing on Lake Vermilion at Lake Vermilion, in Tower, Minn., in July. Forty fishing guides and boat operators took 108 kids out for an afternoon of fishing. During the breakfast for guides, operators, and sponsors, Jensen spoke about the importance of professional anglers and boat operators taking action to prevent the spread of AIS and to take the opportunity to reinforce prevention messages to youth while they fish. Perala-Dewey was on hand to answer questions about AIS at the booth.
