BLM UT- Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Project: The Utah Bureau of Land Management would like to work cooperatively to have a strategy developed and implemented for identifying, prioritizing and implementing an Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) program on BLM administered waterbodies. The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources has become the lead agency for the States AIS Program. The BLM has several waterbodies within Utah that could be adversely affected by the presence of AIS. For example, in the Northeastern Region of Utah, Pelican Lake is a Blue Ribbon Bass and Bluegill lake with visitors traveling from all over the country to fish. It is very important that there is a presence at the lake and interdict any boats that may be trying to launch harboring aquatic invasive species. This agreement will provide assistance via funding to employ one additional seasonal to cover the Pelican Lake area.

Objectives: The principle objective of this proposed program is for the BLM to work cooperatively and partner for AIS work associated with BLM lands.

Objective 1 Educate the public and private stakeholders on the impacts of AIS and how they can help.
Objective 2 Identify and reduce threats of AIS introduction to BLM waterbodies.
Objective 3 Monitor occurrence and spread of AIS associated with BLM waterbodies.
Objective 4 Eradicate newly discovered and established AIS populations.
Objective 5 Control the spread of AIS when eradication is impossible.
