Invasive Species Action Plan (ISAP)
Research Project, 2021
This four-year interdisciplinary research project on marine Invasive Alien Species (IAS) will target four key steps in the chain of management actions:
1. Prevent primary introductions of IAS from marine shipping and secondary introductions from e.g. leisure boats.
2. Detect early stages of new IAS introductions through public awareness and citizen science.
3. Track and predict secondary introductions following primary introductions by high-resolution coastal models coupled with detailed knowledge of life-history traits and the dispersal biology of the IAS.
4. Implement cost-effective in-situ methods to eradicate, or as far as possible control IAS.
