Introduction of Alien Aquatic Species in the St. Lawrence River and Impact on Biodiversity

This project is part of a biodiversity conservation strategy and its purpose is to design and implement the tools needed to: 1) Prevent the introduction and transfer of non-native aquatic species; 2) Control the propagation of invasive non-native species; 3) Assess the impacts of introduced species on biodiversity. Working from an integrated-management perspective on the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence ecosystem, a team of research scientists from the St. Lawrence Centre is: 1) Drawing up a taxonomic inventory and listing the biological characteristics of plant and animal species introduced into the St. Lawrence compared to the Great Lakes basin; 2) Assessing the colonization, abundance and potential impacts of certain species introduced into the St. Lawrence River basin and its tributaries; 3) Assessing the efficiency of control measures for reducing the penetration and proliferation of different invasive introduced species or those likely to be introduced
