Adding in a brief description.
The development of the Framework was funded through a GLRI grant from the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) (funding opportunity F14AS00095, April 21, 2014). The Great Lakes states of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin formed an Early Detection Rapid Response Team in 2014 to collaborate on the development of tools and guiding documents to support state aquatic invasive species (AIS) plans, and potential monitoring and response approaches.

The Lake Superior Aquatic Invasive Species Complete Prevention Plan (the Plan) is an expression of the best professional judgment of the members of the Lake Superior Task Force as to what is necessary to protect Lake Superior from new aquatic invasive species.
Developed annually since 2010, the action plan is designed to prevent the spread of invasive Asian carp in the Great Lakes. The action plan incorporates advances in the most current science making it a continually evolving foundation for the work of the Asian Carp Regional Coordinating Committee (ACRCC) partnership — a collaboration of 27 U.S. and Canadian federal, state, and provincial agencies and organizations.
The Great Lakes St. Lawrence Governors’ & Premiers’ Aquatic Invasive Species Task Force works to stop the introduction and spread of aquatic invasive species (AIS) into the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River Basin. Since its inception, the Task Force has coordinated State and Provincial efforts to combat AIS through strategic regional action.
The purpose of these guidelines is to: provide a consistent, practical, and effective document to inform outreach efforts geared toward public recreationalists to prevent the spread of AIS; take into account the specific pathways, vectors, and life histories of all AIS, including fish, aquatic plants, invertebrates, and pathogens; and promote voluntary actions to support the national Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers!™ campaign, as well as statewide efforts such as Clean Boats, Clean Waters.
