The number of non-natives is astounding, and while other states might not have the same abundance, I think this is an awesome way for other state fish and wildlife departments to engage the fishing public and use their findings, even if we weren't talking about invasive species—let's say an F&G department was looking to survey the number of native brown trout within a particular river. In New Jersey, there are several streams that supposedly have searun trout. Despite my best efforts, I've never caught one, yet there are state signs all over urging people to report them if they do. The average guy might not go through the trouble, but he might if there's a new rod and reel offered for the biggest searun of the year. Think about it.
