Abstract/Summary

Marine Invasive Non-Native Species (INNS) are a significant threat to global biodiversity and can have detrimental socio-economic impacts on activities such as fishing, shipping and aquaculture. Biosecurity measures can prevent the spread of INNS and limit the likelihood of a species entering an area in the first place; such measures are particularly important for marine ecosystems, where eradication and control techniques have been shown to be less effective. A previous study (Macleod et al. 2016) assessed the environmental (with a particular focus on MPA features) and socioeconomic impacts of 8 key marine INNS.
