Description    


Elodea (Elodea canadensis, or common waterweed) is an invasive aquatic plant in Alaska that can significantly degrade habitat for salmon and other aquatic species. This project will continue the process of eradicating Elodea from the Alexander Creek drainage (including Alexander Lake and the Sucker Lakes complex) using aquatic herbicides.

Project Benefit    


Eradicating Elodea from Alexander and Sucker lakes will remove this invasive species from approximately 425 ha of lake, restoring salmon habitat and preventing the spread of Elodea to other salmon-rich lakes in Alaska.
