Report on Marine Debris as a Potential Pathway for Invasive Species
  • Published Date:
Filetype[PDF-3.56 MB]

  • Description:
    There is mounting concern over the increase in debris in our ocean and the potential for that debris to serve as a pathway for the introduction of non-native species. While the pathways associated with global shipping draw the greatest amount of attention regarding marine invasives, the purpose of this paper is to consider the potential role that marine debris may play in introducing non-native species that may become invasive. This paper is not a comprehensive review of either subject (marine debris or invasive species), as reviews are available in the literature for both.
