This Nonindigenous Species Site is a project of the University of Arizona, Arizona Game and Fish, Arizona Department of Agriculture, Salt River Project, and the Central Arizona Project. It is an information center that contains working documents regarding zebra mussels, exotic aquatic plants and other aquatic nuisance species. Links are provided to other sites that also focus on nonindigenous species. The research is supported by a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Federation and the Bureau of Reclamation.
