Aquatic Invasive Species

The increasing presence of aquatic invasive species in native assemblages poses a worldwide threat to coastal ecosystems, and coastal regions are among the most heavily invaded of all marine habitats. It is critical to establish national and international partnerships to research, monitor and investigate potential pathways and develop policies and tools to prevent the introduction and spread of non-native aquatic species. Equally important to research is the development and dissemination of effective outreach and education methods, resources and technical assistance to reduce the sale and potential spread of marine invasive species. Sea Grant helps to create and distribute resource materials to educate and prevent the introduction of non-native invasive organisms.
