Sea lamprey control in the Great Lakes has been an unprecedented success. This study will use a qualitative approach to assess and analyze the deeper knowledge of key individuals involved in Great Lakes aquatic invasive species (AIS) issues, compare this data to existing robust data from an ongoing sea lamprey project, and use the output to inform policymakers, managers, AIS technicians, elected officials, and the public about how to tackle current and future threats.
