Invasive non native species

Invasive Non Native Species (INNS). Developing evidence-based resources and strategies to slow the spread of aquatic INNS through river catchments in Yorkshire.

Project Summary: The project will use research evidence and expertise on biosecurity, GIS modelling, stakeholder engagement, policy development and behavioural change to inform Local Authority strategies and produce resources to support the development of good biosecurity practice tailored to their needs. The long-term outcome will be new strategies embedded across Yorkshire, that can also be applied to catchments elsewhere, to reduce the spread of INNS and cost of treatment of infestations.
