Early Detection and Rapid Response

Describes detection methods for invasive aquatic species and coordinated responses to these threats. See Manager's Tool Kit - Early Detection and Rapid Response for general resources and other species.

Response Protocols for Biofouled Debris and Invasive Species Generated by the 2011 Japan Tsunami (Oct 19, 2012; PDF | 1.5 MB)
Aquatic Nuisance Species Task Force.

Rapid Response Plan for Aquatic Invasive Species
Maryland Sea Grant College Program.
The Rapid Response Planning for Aquatic Invasive Species: A Maryland Example (Jan 2009; PDF | 11.5 MB) serves as a tool for states in the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond to use in developing their own Rapid Response Plans. A template version allows agencies to tailor the plan to address their specific needs. This example document is a result of the state of Maryland's use of the template. The Mid-Atlantic Panel encourages states in the Mid-Atlantic and elsewhere to download the template to customize your State's rapid response and also provides an Aquatic Invasive Species Sighting Report (PDF | 74 KB) form for use in your agency.
