Project deliverables include: 1) Annual report with results of professional surveys (early season AIS survey and EWM peak biomass survey); 2) Annual summary of volunteer EWM monitoring efforts (to be included in annual report); 3) Annual recommendations for following year control strategies (Hand pulling or DASH implementation).
