Event Description

Control and Management of Non-Native Invasive Fish

Tigard, OR     March 9, 2016

During this course, attendees will explore efforts to understand, control and manage invasive fish through early detection and assessment, with emphasis on control and management methods. This is critical as invasive species threaten the biodiversity of aquatic ecosystems worldwide and are considered the second greatest threat to biodiversity loss in North America.

Questions such as those below, and more will be discussed and answered:

  • What is a non-native species and when do they become a problem?
  • What are the biological, social and economic impacts of invasive species?
  • What are the steps in combatting invasive species including prevention, early detection, diagnosis, treatment options, and rehabilitation?
