Abstract: 
The Morro Bay Invasive Species Action Plan is a watershed-wide strategy to reduce the impact of invasive species. It encompasses all taxonomic categories of terrestrial, freshwater, and marine invasive species. To become invasive, these species must go through six different stages including transport, introduction, colonization, naturalization, spread and impact. The different management strategies presented in this plan were developed to address the problem at every stage of the invasion process. These management strategies are written as objectives. The objectives are somewhat fluid, meaning they are mutually exclusive and there is overlap between these categories. This plan is comprised of six objectives with 26 action items addressing: Coordination; Prevention; Early Detection: Rapid Response; Control & Management; Education and Outreach. This is meant to be a living document. To allow a mechanism for easy revisions and updates there will be no draft or final version. Rather, there will be different versions denoted by the date last revisited. The most curretn version of the plan will be available on a website in digital format at (www.centralcoastinvasives.com).
