Connect With Us

At MAISRC, the work doesn’t stop when we publish our results in a journal. A key part of our mission is sharing what we’ve learned in ways that are accessible and implementable by the managers, practitioners, and community organizations who need better tools in the fight against AIS. 

If you would like a MAISRC researcher to join your lake association meeting or community event, submit your request here:

Research & Management Showcase

Every fall, MAISRC holds an Aquatic Invasive Species Research and Management Showcase on the St. Paul campus. This is the best opportunity for you to see our labs, hear from our researchers, and learn more about aquatic invasive species.


AIS Detectors

The AIS Detectors Core Course is an introduction to aquatic invasive species (AIS) science, identification, and surveillance. You will learn how to report invasive species, best practices for preventing the spread of AIS, relevant rules and regulations, and how to search for AIS on your own.


Take a Lab Tour

MAISRC offers tours of our state-of-the-art containment lab space on the last Wednesday of each month from 3:00 - 4:00pm. Group or special request tours are also available. Learn more about our lab
