Basics
Aquatic Invasive Species
Aquatic invasive species such as thick growths of invasive aquatic weeds, clams, snails, and even warm water fish threaten waterways in a number of ways. Consequences of establishment include degradation of water quality, loss of important habitat to native species, impacts to water conveyance structures, and negative economic impacts to the Lake Tahoe Region.
