University of Illinois is actively involved in research on Asian carp species in the Illinois River Waterway through its Illinois River Biological Station in partnership with multiple state and federal agencies in Illinois and the surrounding states. Several research projects have also been completed on non-native species that have become established in the Illinois River Waterway such as white perch, round goby, and zebra mussels. Extension partner, Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant, also actively does research on aquatic invasive species.
