17th International Conference on Aquatic Invasive Species

August 29 - September 2, 2010
Westin San Diego, San Diego, CA

The introduction and spread of invasive species in freshwater and marine environments is a worldwide problem that is increasing in frequency. The presence of invasive species causes significant damage to coastal and freshwater ecosystems, and to the economies that depend upon them.

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation is hosting the 17th International Conference on Aquatic Invasive Species to be held in San Diego, August 29 to September 2, 2010. This is the most comprehensive international forum for the review of accumulated scientific knowledge; presentation of the latest field research; introduction of new technological developments for prevention, monitoring and control; and discussion of policy, legislation, public education and outreach initiatives to raise awareness of the impacts of aquatic invasive species and prevent new introductions. The conference typically involves over 400 participants from 30 countries representing academia, industry, government agencies, NGOs and other stakeholders involved in these issues and seeking opportunities for cooperation and collaboration to address them.
