Invasive Species in the Honeoye Lake Watershed

Invasive species are non-native species that can cause harm to the environment, the economy or to human health. Invasive species are one of the greatest threats to NY’s biodiversity. They cause/contribute to:

  • Habitat degradation and loss

  • Loss of native fish, wildlife and tree species

  • Loss of recreational opportunities and income

  • Crop damage and disease in humans and livestock

  • Property damage
