Aquatic Invasive Species in Commerce

October 27, 2022

Many species of plants and animals are bought and sold globally. The majority of these transactions cause no harm to the environment as responsible sellers and buyers trade species that do not become invasive. However, the increase in global sales is resulting in an increase in the trade of aquatic plants and animals that become invasive. Join us as we discuss our goals to work collaboratively with organizations, agencies, industry, and individuals to identify actions and solutions to mitigate the risks associated with aquatic invasive species in commerce.
