Biological Threats and Invasive Species Research Program
By: , and 



U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) research has supported management of Hypophthalmichthys nobilis (bighead carp), Mylopharyngodon piceus (black carp), Ctenopharyngodon idella (grass carp), and H. molitrix (silver carp), hereafter referred to collectively as invasive carps, for over a decade. This strategic framework identifies thematic research areas to guide funding decisions for USGS invasive carp research during 2023–27. The USGS will use this framework and input from research and management agencies to identify leading-edge research to advance control of these highly damaging invasive species.
