Snakehead in your inbox? Welcome to the nonindigenous Aquatic Species Alert System

National Nonindigenous Aquatic Species database that tracks aquatic introductions to make sure it is a new location. After that, Fuller and her NAS database colleagues verify the information. An alert is then sent to those who signed up for that taxonomic group, and species. If the species is new to the state the alert is sent to anyone who signed up for that state. Those who signed up for alerts on a specific species will get alerts to any new movements of the species into a novel state, county, or drainage.

Most nonindigenous introductions are a result of human activities since the European colonization of North America. This includes not only species that arrived from outside of North America, which are commonly referred to as exotics, but also species native to North America that have been introduced to drainages outside their native ranges within the U.S.

The alert system is tailored to provide wildlife managers the information they request to help them plan and manage the impact of invasives on native species and habitats in their states, parks or conservation areas. It is also used by people interested in research and conservation, or those simply interested in the spread of invasive aquatic animals.

"This system has been needed, and requested for a long time by invasive species biologists, particularly those with federal agencies," said Fuller. "One of the major assets of this system is that the alerts can be annotated with extra information such as a link to a press release about the capture or an identification page."
