NOAA Program Awards $2.5 Million for Research on Great Lakes Invasive Species

The National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science has awarded $2.5 million to the University of Notre Dame and partners to predict the next wave of invasive species likely to enter the Great Lakes and to identify cost-effective countermeasures.

The project will be taking a strategic, big picture, look at Great Lakes invasive species. Although NCCOS is providing initial funding for the project, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is expected to contribute to the project through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.
