The USGS Nonindigenous Aquatic Species Program has launched an alert system that allows users to register to receive e-mails of new aquatic introductions in the United States. Users can sign up for "State Watches", "Group Watches" and/or "Species Watches".
Detailed explanations of each of these can be found on the registration page. The system also allows users who are not registered to review and query archives of alerts that are sent. See also: Protocols

Species Smart Prevention
University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Researchers at the Center for Limnology have
launched a new Web site, Aquatic
Invasive Species Smart Prevention, to help assess the threat of aquatic invasive
species in Wisconsin's lakes. The researchers partnered with
the UW-Madison Applied Population Lab to develop an interactive Web site displaying
a map of Wisconsin with more than 12,000 lakes color-coded to reflect their environmental
suitability for zebra mussels, and
are in the process of expanding the site with maps for additional species. See also: Press
