A three stage outreach transferability program of decision making tool to prevent, manage, and control Asian carp populations in Lake Michigan tributaries based on the evaluation of transport of eggs of local Asian carp populations

  • Develop an outreach plan for technology transfer targeting three stakeholder groups: technical and scientific community, decision makers, and K-12 students and general public
  • Train and instruct the technical and scientific community on how to use and
    interpret FluEgg as a decision making tool, but also to educate decision makers and the general public on the importance of preventing, controlling and managing Asian carp at early life stages
