Delta Interagency Invasive Species Coordination (DIISC) Team
Invasive species are non-native species whose introduction causes or is likely to cause harm to economies, the environment, or human health. The Delta is among the world’s estuaries most-invaded by non-native species. At least 185 non-native species are currently present and new species will likely continue to arrive.
The purpose of the Delta Interagency Invasive Species Coordination (DIISC) Team is to foster communication and collaboration among California state agencies, federal agencies, research and conservation groups, and other stakeholders that detect, prevent, and manage invasive species and restore invaded habitats in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.
