The aim of the current study is to better understand lake residents' knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors related to Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) in Connecticut's freshwater lakes and ponds. Your participation in our study is greatly appreciated! This study has been approved by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) of Western New England University and is being conducted by Dr. Jason Seacat in the Department of Psychology at Western New England University. Your participation in this study is completely voluntary and you may choose to decline or stop participating in the study at any time and without penalty. The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and the information you provide will not be linked to you or your name in any way. This information may be used in future presentations or articles to help prevent the spread of AIS. The study will begin by asking you a few personal background questions and then will ask you a series of questions about aquatic invasive species and your awareness of these species. Please do your best to answer every question honestly and to the best of your ability. The information you provide will be stored electronically on the password-protected computer of Dr. Jason Seacat. Western New England requires that all information be stored for a period of 6 years and then securely destroyed in accordance with University policy. Following your responses to the survey, you will be provided with an information sheet that describes the study in more detail and includes contact information for the IRB Chair, Dr. Jessica Carlson and Dr. Jason Seacat.
