Invasive aquatic species

In aquaculture, invasive species are a major threat. Increased marine traffic spurred by shipping and tourism as well as the transfer of merchandise from one region to another and from one country to another has accelerated the spread of such species. When they settle in a new environment, these species interact with the native fauna and flora, and can create significant damage. Early detection is crucial if we are to eradicate such species as soon as they appear. This explains why Merinov participates in efforts to control these species in partnership with Fisheries and Oceans Canada.

The research and development work conducted by Merinov focuses primarily on species that can affect mariculture. They include the green crab (Carcinus maenas), lacy crust bryozoan (Membranipora membranacea), Japanese skeleton shrimp (Caprella mutica) and some tunicates such as the vase tunicate (Ciona intestinalis), golden star tunicate (Botryllus schlosseri) and orange sheath tunicate (Botrylloides violaceus).
