Human activities are responsible for historical changes, particularly biological invasions and their impacts on freshwater ecosystems. In shallow lakes, there is a close relationship between invasions and native biodiversity. How are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) linked with freshwater invasions? SDGs can help protecting freshwater biodiversity, mainly SDG 2 (food), SDG 6 (water) SDG 11 (cities), and SDG 12 (Sustainable Consumption and Production) and SDG 14 (Life below water). Human activities created a disturbance on aquatic ecosystems by introducing species for human well-being without long-term planning and neglecting scientific findings. Now, human actions have become unsustainable and must be changed. Fighting invasions and protecting biodiversity is fundamental for improving human well-being and the tipping point to freshwater ecosystem integrity. Society, stakeholders, managers and policymakers must be engaged in applying the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, not denying scientific findings.
