Abstract Aquatic Nuisance Species (ANS) pose a significant problem to the State of Alabama. They are species introduced outside of their native ranges that can grown in or are closely associated with the aquatic environment. These can have deleterious effects on the local economy, human health and or ecology. For example, Cuban bulrush (Oxcaryum cubense) has recently invaded Alabamas waterways in to Mobile River Basin, This species clogs and covers waterways, cripples boat traffic and competes with native vegetation, creating a monoculture unsuitable for recreation, commerce, native fish and wildlife species. The purpose of the Alabama Aquatic Nuisance Species Management Plan is to coordinate concise and proactive approach that will prevent or minimize threats to the State of Alabama similar to that of Cuban bulrush.
