New Regulations Seek to Prevent the Spread of Invasive Species in New York State (Aug 27, 2014)
New York Department of Environmental Conservation.
A regulation was adopted in Jul 2014 that prohibits or regulates the possession, transport, importation, sale, purchase and introduction of select invasive species. The purpose of this regulation is to help control invasive species, a form of biological pollution, by reducing the introduction of new and spread of existing populations. This regulation becomes effective Mar 10, 2015. Two species, Japanese Barberry (Berberis thunbergii) and Eurasian boars (Sus scrofa) have grace periods. For more information, see Invasive Species Regulation (scroll to view) and Lands and Forests Emergency, Proposed & Recently Adopted Regulations.

New State Regulations Target Aquatic Invasive Species (Jun 5, 2014)
New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
As part of an aggressive effort to prevent invasive species from entering and damaging New York water bodies, the State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) today adopted new regulations that require boaters to remove all visible plant and animal materials from boats, trailers and associated equipment, and to drain boats prior to launching from DEC lands. The new regulations are available on the DEC website.

New App Lets You Report Invasive Species (Oct 15, 2012)
Ohio State University Extension.
Ohio State University Extension has released a new app for spotting and tracking invasive species -- non-native organisms such as Asian carps, purple loosestrife and Asian longhorned beetle -- to try to keep them from setting up beachheads and hurting the economy and environment. By using the free Great Lakes Early Detection Network app, a person can take pictures of suspected invasive species -- whether of farm, forest or water -- and upload the pictures and locations for verification. Based on this early warning, scientists can send out alerts, map the spread and figure out a battle plan. The network covers the states of Ohio, New York, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota and Pennsylvania. The network covers the states of Ohio, New York, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota and Pennsylvania.

Spiny Water Flea Confirmed in Lake George (Aug 1, 2012)
