June 1-3, 2015, Cleveland, Ohio /

"The binational ecological risk assessment peer-review was held to review the draft research document developed to assess the ecological risk of Grass Carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella) to the Great Lakes basin. The meeting was held on June 1-3, 2015 in Cleveland, Ohio, U.S. and included participants from Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), Great Lakes Fishery Commission, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Geological Survey and invited experts on risk assessment, freshwater invasive fishes, Great Lakes wetlands, and ecosystem modelling from both Canada and the United States. The purpose of this meeting was to review existing information to assess the ecological risk of Grass Carp to the Great Lakes basin. The results of this ecological risk assessment will provide advice for managers and decision makers to use when determining courses of action regarding prevention, monitoring, early detection, rapid response, management, and control of Grass Carp. Results from this ecological risk assessment will also be used to inform a separate socio-economic impact assessment"--Summary, p. v.
