GLANSIS provides targeted access to information - references, fact sheets, and collection records - for 185 established Great Lakes aquatic nonindigenous species. GLANSIS is searchable geographically (by watershed and lake) as well as by scientific and common name.

GLANSIS is supported by NOAA and was developed in partnership with USGS to function as a Great Lakes node of the national USGS Nonindigenous Aquatic Species (NAS) database.
