National Academies advisory: Invasive aquatic species in the Great Lakes

On May 7, a National Research Council committee will hold a meeting in Toronto to gather information on trade in the Great Lakes region and ways to eliminate further introductions of nonindigenous aquatic species into the lakes by vessels traveling the St. Lawrence Seaway. The committee's final report will comment on the strengths and weaknesses of various options and recommend those that seem most promising.

9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on May 7 at the Marriott Toronto Downtown Eaton Centre, 525 Bay St., Toronto. More information is available online at
