Overview

The tools (e.g., chemical, biological, physical methods) available for effective post-border management of marine non-indigenous species (NIS) are still in their infancy, particularly within the biosecurity response and long-term management areas (e.g., eradicating NIS incursions, implementing biosecure shellfish stock transfers).

This project is to carry out research to test the efficacy of post-border management tools to address knowledge gaps, provide more certainty in the effectiveness for use of the tools against a suite of NIS, and to develop and test cost-effective treatments that are deployable at large scales (e.g., aquaculture establishments, marinas, ports and embayments).

This project provides the opportunity to identify effective, efficient, practical and safe tools that will facilitate two distinct purposes:
a) Incursion Response and Eradication
- the eradication/management of NIS to support marine incursion responses, and
b) Shellfish Stock Transfers
- the biosecure movement of cultured shellfish.
