This report provides guidance on developing a strategy for managing and preventing invasive aquatic plant problems. The key steps in establishing a strategy are described with guidance on setting a focus area; identifying useful data sources, partners and stakeholders; prioritising and funding action. The report draws on experience in setting up invasive control strategies and best practice from a handful of established projects. The River Avon catchment (Wiltshire & Hampshire) is used to illustrate the various steps of strategy development. A brief report of a workshop held in Peterborough in November 2004 is included as an appendix to the report. The purpose of this workshop was to consider the non-native invasive problem from a nature conservation perspective.
