While the Aquatic Nuisance Species Task Force has a national focus, it recognizes the tremendous importance of actions taken at the regional, state, and local levels to achieve national aquatic nuisance species solutions. The Regional Panels established by the Aquatic Nuisance Species Task Force are a critical and effective mechanism for achieving the goals of the Aquatic Nuisance Species Task Force and foster collaboration among states to address regional aquatic nuisance species threats and ongoing invasions. Members within each of the six regional panels include representatives of state and federal agencies, tribes, non-governmental organizations, commercial interests, as well as Mexico and Canada. The roles of each panel include:
Identifying regional priorities,
Making recommendations to the Aquatic Nuisance Species Task Force ,
Coordinating regional aquatic nuisance species activities in the region,
Providing advice pertinent to regional aquatic nuisance species issues, and
Reporting annually to the Aquatic Nuisance Species Task Force.
The regional panels that have been established under the Aquatic Nuisance Species Task Force include:
