UMN Aquatic Invasive Species Lab (895 KB)

The Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center (MAISRC) currently uses 10,170 SF for a holding facility located in the Engineering and Fisheries Building on the St. Paul Campus. This project will create a modern research environment for a stable team of experts to maximize the state’s ability to respond to current and future threats to Minnesota’s waters. This research and holding facility will be the only one of its kind in the state where a multitude of aquatic invasive species will be studied in a concerted and cross- disciplinary fashion. The project includes three major components; Aquatic Holding including effluent treatment, Biological Lab/Research Facilities, Office/Admin to include ADA and Code upgrades.
