The primary guidance document for the Marine Invader Monitoring and Information Collaborative (MIMIC) program is Monitoring for Marine Invasive Species: Guidance and Protocols for Volunteer Monitoring Groups, which was published in 2011. It includes information on site selection, monitoring protocols, safety, and identification resources. Select a link below to download.
The Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) trains interested groups to use the monitoring protocol and helps coordinate the groups as part of MIMIC.
